BREAKING NEWS: Jake Paul Wins Lackluster Split Decision Over Tyron Woodley

Jake Paul

Article by Rick Mohamed

Jake Paul recovered from being rocked by cruiserweight Tyron Woodley and took home the victory in an 8 round split decision. Woodley was largely inactive for the first 3 rounds, but rocked Paul in the 4th, knocking him against the ropes. 

The referee should’ve ruled it a knockdown, but didn’t. 

Woodley won 4 of the last 5 rounds, but it wasn’t enough to sway the judges, who scored the fight: 77-75 & 78-74 for Paul, and 77-75 for Woodley. Woodley’s inactivity in the early rounds cost him the victory. 

Paul is now 4-0, 3 KOs, ehile Woodley notches and “L” in his lone boxing match. Afterwards, Paul was challenged by a potential future opponent, Tommy Fury, who won his earlier fight vs. Anthony Taylor, by a unanimous decision in 4 rounds. 

Fury, the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, looked unimpressive in his victory, seen by many as an audition for a possible Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury match. Fury’s no fool: Paul’s fights garner huge attention and million dollar paydays, largely because of Paul’s popularity as a YouTube Content Creator, along with his brother Logan. 

It boggles the mind to see that the Paul brothers, basically boxing novices, outdraw boxing’s best and most seasoned fighters. 

However, it is what it is. 

Woodley lost a fight that should’ve been his victory. He didn’t let his hands go, thus Paul’s activity set the pace in the early rounds. 

Woodley wasted the first 3 rounds avoiding Paul’s big shots, while not throwing any real meaningful punches of his own. Paul is a very green 24-year old fighter who is light years away from being competent enough to fight a top tier fighter. 

For a long while, he’s going to have to be content fighting sub-par talent. Woodley had lost all 4 of his previous MMA matches, so he proved not to be a major threat. 

The Main Event of the night wasn’t great, but some of the fights n the undercard proved to be entertaining, from Amanda Serrano’s dominating win over Yamileth Serrano in the Co-Main Event, to Charles Conwell’s 3rd round TKO over Juan Carlos Rubio, Montana Love’s crushing win over Ivan “The Beast” Baranchyk after 7 rounds-after Baranchyk floored him in the 2nd. Love then rallied to knock The Beast down in the 6th & 7th rounds, the latter of which forced his corner to quit the fight; and heavyweight Daniel Dubois’ devastating 1-round annihilation of Juiseppe Angelo Cusumano. It was a great fight night at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, OH., regardless of the fact that the Main Event lacked any real luster.
