Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley tale of the tape: How boxer and UFC star compare ahead of proposed grudge match

FORMER UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley wants a piece of YouTube star Jake Paul.

The social media star turned boxer stretched his unbeaten run to 3-0 last weekend with a stunning first-round knockout of Woodley's good friend Ben Askren.

But it was Paul's pre-fight actions that drew the ire of Woodley.

The ex-Disney actor and his cornerman J'Leon Love trash-talked Woodley as the former UFC 170lb king watched him have his hands wrapped.

That irked Woodley, who told ESPN: "You had a lot to say in the locker room, let's fight.

"I wanna hear what [Jake Paul] gotta say about it. You wanna fight me? He could fight me.

"I'll fight his friend in MMA, because I wanna elbow his ass. I don't want no little boxing, the poofy gloves.

"I wanna elbow, I wanna f***ing hit his face. I wanna almost break his arm and just let him out.


"So if his boy wants to fight me, he's gonna have to come and see me in the cage."

But how does Woodley stack up against The Problem Child?

SunSport is on hand to give you all the details on a potential showdown between the pair.


Father time is definitely on the side of Paul, who has yet to reach his physical prime at the age of 24.

Woodley, meanwhile, recently turned 39 – although the St. Louis slugger is still very much a physical specimen.


Paul has three professional boxing matches to his name in comparison to Woodley's 0.

However, Woodley's overall combat sports experience far outweighs that of the Ohio native.

Woodley has made the walk to the cage a staggering 27 times, winning 19 of those matches.

In addition to his 27 professional fights, Woodley also has seven amateur contests to his name – bringing his total number of bouts to 34.


The divisive Paul is three inches taller than Woodley at 6'0 and has a two-inch reach advantage over the MMA vet.

Woodley, however, is significantly heavier than Paul, weighing a full stone more than the former Vine sensation at 14st, 6lbs.


Paul is currently on a red-hot streak having won all three of his fights via TKO.

Woodley, meanwhile, is on the worst run of his 12-year-long career having lost his last four in a row.
