Four months after their first fight, Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley meet in the ring again for a high-profile rematch in Florida on Saturday night.

YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul was due to be facing Tommy Fury but he pulled out three weeks before the fight due to a bacterial chest infection and broken rib.

Ex-UFC welterweight champion Woodley stepped up at short notice for a second go at Paul and has been offered an extra $500,000 if he wins the rematch by knockout.

Paul won their first fight in Cleveland back in August by split decision.

But he was lucky to avoid a first knockdown in his hometown as he was given a first real in-ring test before continuing his winning streak.

Paul had previously beaten another experienced MMA fighter in Ben Askren as well as former NBA star Nate Robinson and fellow internet personality AnEsonGib, with Fury’s withdrawal denying him a first shot at an actual professional boxer.

The former YouTuber has also suggested he could be ‘the next Muhammad Ali’.

Woodley served as the UFC’s welterweight king from 2016 to 2019, with an eventual loss to the great Kamaru Usman sparking a run of four successive defeats inside the octagon for the now 39-year-old.

Chief support on the night comes from unified women’s featherweight world champion Amanda Serrano, who will have one eye on a fight with undisputed lightweight queen Katie Taylor as she takes on Miriam Gutierrez.

Also on the card is a four-round tussle between ex-basketball star Deron Williams and long-time NFL running back Frank Gore, both making their boxing debuts.

Paul vs Woodley 2 fight prediction

Paul was given by far the toughest test of his short boxing career to date in the first Woodley fight, with Fury on the undercard, though that’s not exactly saying much given his earlier demolitions of highly questionable opponents.

Though he eventually won 77-75, 75-77, 78-74 on the judges’ scorecards, he was hurt by a big right hand in the fourth round that probably should have registered as a knockdown as he was held up by the ropes.

Though not a boxer by trade, Woodley is a decent enough striker and a tough and durable character with his best days behind him nearing 40.

Paul will want to begin another knockout streak here to strike fear into Fury, but Woodley is smart and resilient enough to ensure that doesn’t happen.

We envisage ‘The Problem Child’ winning on points once more.
