Unbeaten YouTube cruiserweight Jake Paul (5-0, 4 KOs) scored a spectacular sixth round KO over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley (0-2) in a rematch on Saturday night at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. Mostly an ugly fight with a lot of clinching. Paul suffered a cut from a head clash in round three. Neither fighter landed a big shot the entire fight until Paul connected with a monster right hand that sent Woodley crashing to the canvas face first and out cold. Time was 2:12.
“This has to be the greatest moment of my life,” said Paul. “Look at what I just did. Look at the year I just had. Unprecedented. One of the most valuable boxers in this sport. Four fights. Four massive pay-per-views in 13 months. I’ve knocked out every single person that I’ve fought. Every single person that I’ve fought.”
