TAMPA, Fla. -- Jake Paul's ascent in the world of boxing isn't stopping any time soon. In fact, it might just be getting started.
Paul, the YouTube-star-turned-prizefighter, knocked out former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley at 2:12 of the sixth round in a rematch Saturday night here at Amalie Arena. In what was a lackluster fight before the finish, Paul walloped Woodley with a huge right hand, and Woodley was out cold on contact, faceplanting to the mat.
"This is as real as it f---ing gets, just like my right hand," Paul said.
The bout was contracted for 192 pounds over eight rounds.
