Jake Paul on his Power Against Woodley
Woodley may be a former UFC champion, but betting odds made him the underdog against Paul in the ring. Recently, Paul spoke about the fight against Woodley and discussed how he is unlike any opponent that Woodley has ever fought, especially from a power aspect.
“I think as soon as I touch him, his body is going to go back to that losing mentality, the fight or flight and he’s not gonna wanna sit there and fight. I don’t know, I just see that that’s why I’ve been saying two rounds,” Paul said to Brendan Schaub.
“I’m too sharp, I’m too fast, I’m too powerful and he has 85 days to do this, learn how to box, and unlearn all those bad habits. I’m going to eat up his body, I’m going to eat up his head. He’s not going to know where I’m coming (from). Kamaru Usman put some damage on him, all these guys put some damage on him, Gilbert Burns put the damage on him. He’s coming in a wounded soldier.”

“They are stacking the odds like, I’ve had people come up to me saying they made $10 million, $5 million off of betting on me. It’s funny, like why is me, the YouTube kid the favorite against the five-time UFC champion [Tyron Woodley]?”
