Paul vs. Woodley: Fight Card, Undercard, Odds
One of the most buzzed-about sporting events of the summer, the boxing pay-per-view card tonight is a battle between the infamous content creator Jake “The Problem Child” Paul vs. former MMA world champion Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley. The fight is scheduled for eight rounds in the cruiserweight division.
While Woodley is unquestionably the more experienced fighter, his skills were primarily honed in the UFC octagon. How the MMA fighter will fare in a pure boxing match is still to be determined.
Paul, meantime, already has three professional boxing matches under his belt, though it’s worth noting that two of them were with “celebs” Ali Eson Gib and Nate Robinson. Paul’s other fight took place this past April against the former MMA champion Ben Askren, with the social media star taking Askren down with a brutal first-round knockout. Vegas oddsmakers currently have Paul as the betting favorite to win against Woodley as well.
There are some intriguing matchups in the Paul vs. Woodley undercard as well. The five-fight telecast will also feature the U.S. debut of two proven British fighters: Daniel Dubois and Tommy Fury. Dubois, who is ranked No. 1 by the WBA, will face Juiseppe Angelo Cusumano in a 10-round matchup, while Fury (the younger brother of heavyweight champ Tyson Fury), will square off against combat sports veteran Anthony “Pretty Boy” Taylor in a six-round fight.
The fight card also features a unified women’s title fight between WBC/WBO/IBO Featherweight World Champion Amanda Serrano defending her titles against Super Bantamweight World Champion Yamileth Mercado. Former Junior Welterweight Champ Ivan Baranchyk, meantime, steps into the ring to face the unbeaten Montana Love in a 10-round showdown.
