How does the MMA-fighter-turned-boxer compare to the Youtube sensation? Will his height be an asset or hindrance?
Tyron Woodley is a force to be reckoned with, at least on the MMA front. He’s been able to rack up 19 wins and seven losses over his career with seven being by knockout. He’s been described as an exceptional striker in the Octagon, but boxing is a whole other ball game when it comes to fighting.
To add, he’s definitely a veteran in the sport. As Woodley put it, he’s looking to make a lot of fighting purists happy taking on the YouTuber-turned-boxer, Jake Paul in Sunday’s matchup as he told MMA Hour. But how does he match up to Paul?
How tall is Tyron Woodley?
Woodley is weighing in at 180 pounds and standing at 5’9″ against Paul’s 6’1″ 190-pound frame
Woodley is a bit smaller thanPaul, about the same height as Nate Robinson; and if you don’t remember how that fight went, here’s something that will jog your memory. Standing at 5’9″ and entering a new fighting discipline, being boxing, he may be at a bit of a disadvantage.
Considering Paul is 6’1″ and has been on a roll, and talking major trash to Woodley, the key to success with speed and endurance. ESPN has reported that Woodley has beefed up at 180 pounds, the heaviest he’s ever weighed in at.
If Woodley can wear Paul down, he won’t be able to keep up, and maybe… just maybe, we won’t have to hear from him again after this match.
