KSI believes YouTube star Jake Paul is going to thrash former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in their upcoming fight.
Speaking to fellow YouTuber HarveyMsc, he said:
“Jake Paul’s going to win.
“He’s going to absolutely destroy – absolutely destroy Tyron Woodley.
“I haven’t wanted him to win for years and he keeps winning.
“So, at this point, it’s like, ‘Do your thing. Yeah. Do your thing. You’re in your element. You’re in your moment’.”
The upcoming fight with Woodley will be Jake Paul’s fourth professional fight and he’s feeling pretty confident about it - with good reason, since going pro, the 24-year-old has maintained a 3-0 record.
“Tyron ran his mouth a little too much in the locker room when I knocked out his best friend Ben and earned himself a top spot on the Problem Child death list,” Paul said on his Instagram when the fight date was first announced.
“Tyron’s a seasoned striker who has fought the best MMA fighters in the world but will be dropped by a Disney teen star in 2 rounds,” he added.
But, even if somewhat skeptically, backing Woodley is UFC president Dana White, who said back in June that by record, Woodley should be the one to finally shut the cocky YouTuber up. Then again, he added that Woodley isn’t the same fighter he was a few years ago. He’s now approaching 40 and hasn’t won a fight in three years.
Paul and Woodley will get in the ring on Saturday 28th August in Paul’s hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.
The fight will be available to stream on PPV.
Paul recently said how he plans to ‘expose’ the UFC with his upcoming fight with Woodley.
