Paul-Woodley Boxing Buzz

Say what you will about Jake Paul, but he drew a sold-out crowd of 16,000 fans at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio, in addition to a huge SHOWTIME PPV audience for his fight against 39-year-old former UFC Champion Tyron Woodley.

Paul-Woodley and Love-Baranchyk, will air on SHOWTIME this Saturday, September 4. The delayed telecast will be immediately followed by the premiere of All Access: Jake Paul vs. Woodley Epilogue.

Barstool Sports’ two most popular personalities Dave “El Presidente” Portnoy and Dan “Big Cat” Katz hosted betting segments throughout the Paul-Woodley PPV telecast. They made wagers on all five televised fights — and somehow managed to lose every bet all night long.

  • The bottom line is…Modern boxing entertainment is not just about the seriousness of the sport and all the hard work professionals put into making a career. Boxing entertainment is also about Youtube dreamers that are able to sell tickets to certain followers that some glimmer of hope a wannabe professional fighter can rise to the occasion. However, we all know as diehard boxing fans that genuine boxing entertainment lies within those fighters that disregard being in the spotlight from Youtube and can only pay their bills and feed their families with blood, sweat, and tears through endless hours of dedication.

  • Can someone please tell me why the best fighter on the card, Charles Conwell, was not televised. Do you think it’s because one of his opponents died in the ring? Ironically, Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini was in attendance, and one of his opponents suffered a similar fate.

  • It is so sad that wannabe fighters like Jack Paul are being treated like professionals. This type of boxing cards are making boxing into a joke. So sad.

  • Reminds me of when Kimbo Slice got into the pro game. Jake is actually a better fighter and draws more fans. Jake seems like a smart guy, milking this for what it is worth and probably has another plan ready to go. After the last fight and interview, it seems like he has doubts and may move on from boxing sooner than later.

  • I grew up with a guy who was a fringe contender/journeyman in the late 80’s/90’s/2000’s. He was in the ring with the best of the best fighters around the middleweight division of that era. He even pulled off incredible upsets, but mostly lost. He fought on HBO, Showtime, ESPN, and the most he ever made was $20,000 for a fight, probably even less. He fought for a legitimate world title mind you. Right now, he is in his 50’s, broke, brain damaged and barely employable. This is an all too common scenario in the boxing world. In fact I know several guys in similiar situactions. I wonder how they feel watching Jake Paul earn millions after 4 fights against non boxers?

      • No, it wasnt him, but the story is pretty much the same. I dont want to throw his name out there without his permission. This story can be true of most fighters after their careers. Boxing is a brutal, brutal sport and is very unkind to those who struggle to make a living at it. As soon as a fighter, no matter how good he was, shows signs of fading, he becomes yesterdays news. Who knows what the future holds for Paul. Im sure hes been rattled in the gym and has taken heavy blows, but once he gets crushed, or even loses at all in a fight, which he will, he will reconsider his future in the sport.
