For the first time in his career, Jake Paul went the distance and picked up a split decision win over Tyron Woodley. There wasn’t much action through the eight rounds of boxing, but based on the punch stats, at least, it was “The Problem Child” who showed a little more activity.
“The Chosen One” did have his moments, particularly in the fourth round when he wobbled Paul with a right hand. The most activity he showed was in the fifth round, and ultimately, his efforts weren’t enough to get him the victory.
Below are the fight’s scorecards, which both men had objections to.
Judge Jaime Garayua had Paul winning 77-75, giving rounds for, five, and eight to Woodley. Judge Phil Rogers had the same tally in favor of Woodley and scored rounds four through eight for the former UFC champion.
Judge Dana De Paolo had it 78-74 for Paul and had Woodley winning rounds three and four only.
With the win, the 24-year-old Paul is now 4-0 in his professional boxing career.
