Jake Paul’s coach says Tyron Woodley ‘won’t go far’ in rematch as YouTube star got ‘exponentially better’

JAKE PAUL’S coach said Tyron Woodley ‘wouldn’t go far’ in their rematch and warned the YouTube star was ‘exponentially better’.

Paul scored the biggest goal of his boxing career four times in August when he beat former UFC champion Woodley through eight rounds.

And he was then set to fight 22-year-old Tommy Fury, until the younger brother of heavyweight champion Tyson pulled out injured.

Woodley, 39 years old, has since signed on as Fury’s belated replacement, but Paul’s coach BJ Flores promised to wait for a brand new opponent to arrive on December 18.

Flores told SunSport: “Jake is a lot better now than he was on August 29, he’s so much better.

“And you have to remember, he just started boxing, so in a short time he has improved a lot very quickly.

“He’s only been boxing for two years, so four months is 15% of his entire career, so he’s gotten a lot better.

“I know it’s going to be a tough fight, Tyron will be tough in the beginning, but we hope Tyron doesn’t go too far this time.

“It will be very difficult for Tyron to keep up with Jake, to deal with the kind of offense Jake is committing this time.

“This time it will be a different fight and everyone will see that. Jake’s speed will be very high. ”

In Paul’s first three fights, he beat YouTuber ‘AnEsonGib’, former NBA star Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, also 37.

He then followed up by beating Woodley by eight innings.

Flores and Paul have since studied the performance and revealed their winning formula will be different in the much-anticipated rematch.

He said: “We’ll see how Tyron comes out. He’s an experienced veteran. The reason he didn’t punch last time was because he couldn’t.

“He’s being counter-attacked, he’s getting hit when he’s in range, he’s not really sure what part of the ring he needs to be in to not get hit.

“It’s a lot different from the UFC, so he’s also trying to get his spirits up, he’s never been there with someone like Jake.

“We will prepare for the best Tyron, I expect him to be aggressive, we will be able to do what we have always done.

“We can box, we can move forward and forward, whatever we want to do. And this time Jake’s speed will be much higher.

“It’s going to be tough for Tyron, I’m telling you right now it’s going to be tough for him now that we’ve seen how he fights and can break that.”

Woodley was Paul’s first and only rival make it to the scorecard.

But Flores is confident it won’t be the second case within 24 minutes that will close the show.

“I see a win, I see 100 per cent win,” he said. I see a fight where Jake will look exponentially better. He will become sharper, sharper.

“He’s going to have some new elements that you’ll see in round one.

“I didn’t know the knockouts were coming, I don’t care at all, we’re not in a hurry, we have eight rounds to do it.”
