YouTube sensation Jake Paul will put his undefeated record on the line when he boxes former Ultimate Fighting Championship titleholder Tyron Woodley in an eight-round cruiserweight rematch on Saturday at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. Paul eked out a split decision—77-75, 75-77, 78-74—over Woodley on Aug. 29.
“I hurt him multiple times in that first fight, and I didn’t even hit him with my best shot,” Paul said at the final pre-fight press conference on Thursday. “It was a bad night, and I still beat him. He should be embarrassed by that.”
Woodley aims to erase some bad memories.
“I’m just excited about the opportunity to redeem myself,” he said. “We found out a lot about each other that night in the ring. We have mutual respect, but there’s still unfinished business.”
Paul vs. Woodley II “Leave No Doubt”—which airs live on Showtime pay-per-view at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT—also features a women’s lightweight co-main event matching Amanda Serrano with Miriam Gutierrez, a heavyweight attraction pitting three-time NBA all-star Deron Williams against five-time NFL Pro-Bowler Frank Gore and a light welterweight confrontation pairing Liam Paro with Yomar Alamo. Meanwhile, two non-televised bouts kick off festivities, as Anthony Taylor meets Chris Avila at super middleweight and J’Leon Love faces Marcus Oliveira at cruiserweight.
