|Open (Dec. 6)||-277||+200|
Jake Paul was originally scheduled to fight Tommy Fury on Dec. 18, but Fury had to withdraw due to a rib injury.
Instead, the YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul will fight Tyron Woodley in a rematch from their August bout.
Paul beat Woodley by split decision in their last fight, with the three judges scoring it 77-75, 79-74, 75-77. Most wouldn’t have argued with the results considering Woodley landed just 53 punches and seemed content to run out the clock. But Woodley called the decision “laughable” and started the rematch narrative.
Paul was favored in each of his last two fights over Woodley and former MMA fighter Ben Askren, but was listed as a +140 underdog to Fury.

Jake Paul Fight History
Paul’s opponents have been an eclectic mix, including two former MMA stars, a YouTuber and former NBA guard Nate Robinson. The one thing missing is an actual fighter.
Both Woodley and Ben Askren, wrestling teammates at the University of Missouri and eventual MMA champs, had never boxed professionally until fighting Paul.
Paul stopped the fight against Askren in Round 1 via TKO, and fought to a split decision with Woodley several months later, though Woodley seemed content not to throw many punches.

How Did We Get Here?
Woodley and Paul have already fought once — but why?
Woodley is a longtime friend and teammate of Ben Askren, who Paul knocked out in Round 1 in April. Woodley and Paul’s entourage got into it a bit backstage during that fight and called Woodley’s boxing ability into question. Woodley was in Askren’s corner for that bout, as well.
Both Paul brothers have made calculated boxing moves so far, meant to maximize their earning potential while setting themselves up for future success. Even Floyd Mayweather admitted as much before his fight with Logan Paul.
“I believe in working smarter, not harder,” Mayweather said. “So if it’s something easy like [the Paul fight], a legalized bank robbery, I gotta do it. I have to do it.
“My nickname is ‘Money’ for a reason… I worked extremely hard for years and years to get to a certain level — a level where we can start calling everything an event.”
This will be Woodley’s second fight as a boxer after losing four straight UFC fights to seemingly put an end to his career in the octagon, at least at the highest level. His UFC contract expired in March after his loss to Vicente Luque at UFC 260.
Paul, though he rose to fame through social media, has been taking his boxing training quite seriously. The 24-year-old Ohio native is training with BJ Flores and spent time training with former boxing star “Sugar” Shane Mosely.
“Paul has been training really hard,” Mosley said before Paul’s first pro fight, a knockout over AnEsonGib. “He surprised me because he’s a YouTuber, but he’s actually training like a real fighter. He worked with me one time and I could see he had good athletic ability. He was a football player, basketball player, he did wrestling — he’s an athlete.”
The Paul brothers grew up wrestling in Ohio.
Both Woodley and Paul promised knockouts in the first fight, but we didn’t get a ton of action.
“Easiest fight of my career and biggest purse of my career all in one night,” Woodley told ESPN earlier this summer. “I can’t wait to shut this b—- up. This is getting done for the culture, the whole MMA community and boxing community, to rid this guy of combat sports.”
