Jorge Masvidal believes Tyron Woodley will KO Jake Paul on August 29.
‘The Chosen One’ is about to make his boxing debut in opposition to Paul in the primary occasion of a Showtime pay-per-view that may even characteristic the likes of Amanda Serrano, Tommy Fury, and Daniel Dubois.
Throughout a current look on The MMA Hour, Masvidal defined why he’s backing Woodley to beat Paul.
“So, it’s to not diss Jake…Woodley can throw them palms; Ben Askren by no means might,” Masvidal mentioned. “Woodley might’ve made his cash grappling, which he did. He’s adequate of an athlete, and he’s adequate of an athlete to make his cash together with his palms and knock individuals the f**okay out. I do know Jake’s by no means been in there with a man like that – That’s explosive, is an efficient athlete, and has a ton of expertise over. So, (if) Jake wins, f**king wild. My hat’s off to him. I used to be flawed. I don’t know sh** about preventing, proper? However, likelihood is Woodley‘s gonna knock him the f**okay out.”
Masvidal spent a while within the health club with Paul however by no means really noticed him do any actual work. In distinction, ‘Gamebred’ says he’s seen the perfect of Woodley and thinks he’s obtained what it takes to defeat the web superstar.
“We (Jake Paul and I) didn’t spar. I noticed him hit the pads. I believe I’ve seen him frivolously sparring with guys. I’ve solely seen from fights and the footage we now have on-line when he’s going at 100, 100 pace. That being mentioned, I’ve additionally seen Woodley when he’s hitting pads, when he’s sparring at 100, and when he’s preventing at 100. And I do the mathematics. Woodley wins, man. Woodley simply wins, you already know.”
“So long as he did his half – which was prepare, main up to date; was within the health club, doing his factor – he’s gonna win,” Masvidal added. “There’s simply an excessive amount of expertise and athleticism on that aspect. I believe Jake’s athlete, however Woodley’s a distinct kind of athlete, you already know, that subsequent, next-level athlete. And Jake’s gonna really feel it within the struggle. I don’t suppose he’s even ever sparred with anyone as athletic as Woodley that may cowl the gap he can. If Woodley was to get drained or harm, (he’d) clinch him and there’s nothing Jake might do. Yeah, the referee will break it up, however there goes 4 or 5 seconds. He’s gonna get manhandled within the clinch. I see Woodley successful.” (Transcribed by Sportskeeda)
