Jake Paul defeated Tyron Woodley in a boxing match back in August last year, which many fans believed to be nothing but a fluke. Jake Paul rejected a rematch with Tyron Woodley despite him getting a tattoo. However, as luck would have it, Tommy Fury had to pull out from his boxing match, giving Woodley a chance to face Jake Paul once again.
On December 18 last year, Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley duked it out once again, with Woodley being determined to avenge his loss. However, it didn’t quite turn out the way Woodley had hoped.
While the first half of the boxing match was quite lacklustre, the second half more than made up for it. During the 6th round, Jake Paul did the unthinkable and knocked out Tyron Woodley with a vicious right hand that dropped him
Some believe a secret hand gesture gave away the knockout punch and the fight was rigged. Immediately after Jake Paul’s shocking victory, fans suspected the match as rigged from the start. Due to this, ‘rigged’ and ‘staged’ began trending on social media.
While speaking on The MMA Hour, Tyron Woodley addressed the rumors that he took a dive during the match. Woodley shot down all the rumors as he made it clear Jake Paul legitimately knocked him out.
“Yeah, I took a motherf***ing dive, but it wasn’t on purpose. That motherf***er hit me with some s***”
Jake Paul is also in no hurry to get back in the boxing ring after his win over Tyron Woodley. We will have to wait and see who Jake Paul’s next opponent will be once he does decide to return to boxing. He has recently called out Canelo Alvarez, so we wonder if Alvarez will be next or not.
