The Problem Child is going to fight against The Chosen One on August 28. Now, Jake Paul made it official via an Instagram post. Where he wrote, ” Tryon earned a top shot in his death list”. Which is quite confident of him. Well, to what extent is he right? Let’s try and have a breakdown on what exactly are the areas where the younger Paul can outweigh the former welterweight champion.
Jake has always been skeptical of whom he is fighting and fight fans have questioned the same. Before his fight with Ben was declared, UFC CEO Dana White in an interview said ” if he is a fighter, then he should fight someone real“. Jake certainly has chosen the “chosen one” but, Keeping in streak with his strategy so far, Jake Paul has chosen an opponent who is relatively smaller in size than him and has a drawback in terms of reach.
Size Difference between Jake Paul and Tryon Woodley
Tryon Woodley stands 5 9″ tall and has a reach of 74 in. In the last fight in UFC where T-Wood fought Vincente Luque in a welterweight division, he weighed 170 pounds. But, it’s needless to say that on fight night Woodley must be close to 180 lbs or more. While on the flip side Jake weighed around 190 pounds as he fought in the cruiserweight division before. He also has an advantage in height and reach as he stands 6 1″ tall with a reach of 76 in.
Undoubtedly the influencer will enjoy having the youth advantage. T-Wood is 15 years older than Jake. The YouTuber is only 24 years old while Tryon is certainly at the age of retirement considering his last four fights which he lost. The former champion hasn’t won a single fight since 2018.
Paul vs Woodley: prediction
In addition to that, Jake Paul is a guy that has only been boxing for the last 3 years 24/7. On the other hand, Woodley has not been boxing lately, yes he has been training for his upcoming fights. But in terms of boxing experience and practice, Jake stands a chance.
Now, Woodley is a legit striker. But he is not in great form since he was defeated by Kamaru Usman in 2019. He is not the same guy who defeated Robbie Lawler back in 2016. Jake also has the winning momentum with him and he legitimately knocked out Ben in his last match. On the contrary, it was half a decade ago since Tryon knocked Robbie out.
