Tyron Woodley never looked beyond Jake Paul throughout two bouts, and he advises Anderson Silva to do the same as he prepares for their fight on October 29. Paul is a YouTuber turned fighter.
The fight against Woodley, a former UFC champion who had major knockout power in his hands, was seen as Paul’s first real test as he attempted to establish a legitimate boxing career.
In their first fight, Paul prevailed over Woodley with a narrow victory through a majority decision. However, in their second bout, Paul knocked out Woodley with a powerful overhand right that ended the veteran mixed martial artist’s career.
Woodley Cautions Anybody Who Believes Paul Isn’t Serious
Woodley warns anyone who thinks that Paul isn’t taking his career seriously and considering him as merely a social influencer who is dabbling in combat sports for the fun of it.
Even though some fighters still want to make fun of Paul and his boxing aspirations, Woodley says that anyone who does so is making a mistake.
On the episode of The Fighter vs. The Writer, Woodley remarked, “I know a lot of people want to see Jake Paul get beat up and see him taught a lesson like a bully on a playground.” “But he truly is a child; he doesn’t have a lot of responsibilities, he doesn’t have any financial limits, and he has energy.
He makes everything a bucket list item or a challenge.” Because of this, he enjoys gambling quite a bit. Because he’s been interested in the field of combat sports for such a long time, even if he loses, it won’t be a huge thing, but he’s got a deep desire to succeed in the competition.
“I’ve got so many videos of the baby face Jake Paul wanting to take pictures with me and Logan [Paul] and being fans of me back in the day, he’s just tricking everyone,” Logan Paul said.
“I’ve got so many videos of the baby face Jake Paul wanting to take pictures with me and Logan Paul and being fans of mine Paul may spend too much time on social media and not enough time putting in the necessary effort in the gym.
Because he frequently draws attention to himself through Twitter or Instagram while taking shots at other fighters or sometimes engaging in a flame war with promoters like UFC president Dana White.
Paul Spends Too Much Time Online and Not Enough at The Gym
This may give the impression that Paul spends too much time on social media and not enough time putting in the necessary effort in the gym. After sparring with him for more than forty minutes, Woodley is well aware that this is in no way the case.
As a result, Silva, or anybody else entering the ring with Paul should be very careful not to underestimate the talents that he will bring with him. According to Woodley, “he’s working his rear end off at the gym.”
“He’s got KO power, and he’s learned how to deliver that specific blow that he’s got the timing on,” the announcer said. When it comes to Silva and his boxing game, Woodley provides similar praise, particularly after seeing him over the years when both were champions in the UFC.
In particular, Woodley offers this praise after observing Silva throughout their careers in the UFC.
Silva, who is 47 years old, seems to be winding down his fighting career, but he has somehow found new life in the ring since he decided to dedicate all of his efforts to boxing.
In June 2021, he stunned the boxing world by defeating Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in an impressive performance. Three months later, he dominated fellow UFC veteran Tito Ortiz by knocking him out in the first round of their fight.
After Leaving the UFC Shows
“Whatever it is that Anderson Silva has been doing lately in boxing after leaving the UFC shows you that he’s getting acknowledged,” added Woodley. “Anderson Silva.” “You’re treated nicely, you feel well, and sometimes you fight differently.”
You see individuals become happier circumstances. “It’s possible that he was simply going through the motions on his way out of the UFC, but now that he’s found newfound freedom—one that I share with him—reigniting it’s the fire that was always there.
Now you’ve got an inspired version of Anderson Silva,” Although Woodley has always respected Silva’s boxing talents, even when he was fighting in mixed martial arts, he still considers one of his longtime comrades to be the finest he’s ever seen when it comes to throwing hands.
Silva has always been one of Woodley’s biggest boxing influences. According to Woodley, “Anderson Silva is a good boxer.” Citation needed I’d say he’s one of the top boxers in mixed martial arts.
The fact that Jorge Masvidal dismantled KJ Noons in the worst manner possible gives me the impression that I have a predisposition to claim that he is the finest boxer that we have ever seen in mixed martial arts.
At the time, KJ was considered to be the top boxer and striker in the sport. I was in the corner cheering him on whenever he had a chance to fight Nate Diaz or anyone else who was simply punching, even Yves Edwards.
Anderson Silva is among a select group of elite boxers who are considered to be among the best. Woodley, more than anything else, anticipates a fantastic fight, even though the accolades that have been offered to Paul and Silva have in some way been seen as a slight against him.
“Now Jake Paul is fighting a good fighter, I hear people saying,” “That piece of s*** right there is hilarious,” remarked Woodley. “I believe it’s going to be a fantastic battle. You’ll likely see me there.
