Why bet on Jake Paul to beat Tyron Woodley?
Jake Paul has 3 professional fights under his belt. Paul is serious about his boxing as evidenced by the way he trains and the way he fights. Jake hasn’t slowed down and even though so many people believe he’s a joke, his work ethic has shined through.
It’s especially shined through during his recent training camp. If Woodley makes a mistake, JP can knock him out with a single punch. Power is the reason Jake has become more of a favorite to win this bout the closer we approach fight night.
Why bet on Tyron Woodley to beat Jake Paul?
Unlike Paul, Tyron Woodley has vast experience in combat sports. The 39-year-old has been involved in combat sports for most of his life, which means even though Jake Paul has more professional boxing experience, Tyron Woodley has more overall combat sports experience.
Not only that, but unlike Jake Paul, Woodley has come back from adversity. He’s gotten hit hard, has picked himself up, and has rallied. Woodley has a proven chin while Paul doesn’t. Tyron’s power, although not as devastating as JP’s, is good enough to end Jake’s night.
Final Boxing Betting Analysis: Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley
Sparring sessions, past bouts, and the open training sessions on Wednesday, don’t paint an exact picture as to what might happen on Sunday night. But it does gives us some clues.
Unlike Ben Askren, Nate Robinson, and the YouTube star that Jake blasted in his first professional boxing match, Tyron Woodley has actual boxing skill. That was obvious in the open training session on Wednesday.
Woodley didn’t show the speed he will bring into the ring, but he did show he knows how to set his foot, move correctly, keep his hands up, and throw combinations. Setting one’s feet and moving correctly is the most important aspect of boxing.
It will be especially important on Sunday night because while Woodley showed he has learned to move like a boxer, Jake crossed his feet a few times during his open session. If Paul crosses his feet on Sunday night, Woodley, no doubt will take advantage.
One thing that boxing fans and the so-called experts haven’t brought up is how Tyron spent three months training in Miami with Pedro Diaz. Diaz put Woodley through the ringer like he does all of his fighters.
If you look at who Diaz has trained, Guillermo Rigondeaux and Miguel Cotto being the most famous, its obvious he builds his boxers from fundamentals up. If Woodley brings half of what Diaz taught Rigondeaux and Cotto to the ring, he should easily handle Paul.
There’s a saying in boxing. Your best defense is your offense. That doesn’t mean you go right after an opponent and try to knock them out. It means you throw punches with defense in mind to set up more powerful punches.
To prepare for this boxing match, Woodley has received training from one of the best in the world. BJ Flores, Jake Paul’s trainer, knows what his talking about. But the depth of his knowledge doesn’t compare to Pedro Diaz’s.
Jake’s lone advantage is his power. We must believe Diaz knows this and has taught Tyron how to counter JP’s heavy hands.
The odds make Woodley a massive overlay. He should be the chalk in this fight. Back Tyron Woodley to beat Jake Paul.
JP has yet to prove he can take a punch while Woodley has hung in there after receiving a devastating punch. Not only that, but although Flores knows how train, Pedro Diaz is one of the best in the world. Woodley wins.
