Where is the Paul-Woodley fight?
The fight will take place at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland.
Jake Paul will look to improve his professional boxing record to 4-0 on Sunday when he faces his toughest opponent in former UFC champion Tyron Woodley.
Paul’s first professional fight was against fellow YouTuber Ali Eson Gib, and he followed that with bouts against former NBA player Nate Robinson and former UFC fighter Ben Askren.
“Now we’re kind of stepping up the level of opposition,’’ said BJ Flores, Paul’s head trainer. “I feel like Tyron Woodley’s going to be Jake’s first legitimate challenger.’’
Woodley is making his boxing debut. He went 19-7-1 in the UFC and won the welterweight championship in June 2016, defending the title four times. He lost his last four UFC matches, the last in March, before his contract expired and the UFC let him go.
At 39, Woodley is 15 years older than the 24-year-old Paul. At 5-9, he is four inches shorter than the 6-1 Paul. But in videos of Woodley training, he looks fit.
In Paul’s first three pro fights, he showed ample power with a knockout and two TKOs. But much remains to be determined about his boxing skills considering he has fought for less than nine cumulative minutes in those three fights.
