Tyron Woodley Warns Mike Perry Ahead Of Jake Paul Fight


Tyron Woodley has a piece of advice for Mike Perry ahead of his boxing showdown against Jake Paul.

Paul and Perry will meet in a highly anticipated boxing match on July 20 in Tampa, Florida, where the bare knuckle boxing world champion hopes to hand Paul his second boxing loss.

Perry’s aggressive style, which was evident in wins over Luke Rockhold and Thiago Alves, poses a considerable challenge for Paul, who was initially scheduled to battle Mike Tyson, who pulled out after a medical emergency.

Woodley, who faced Paul twice in 2021 and lost both times, understands firsthand the difficulties of fighting Paul in the ring.

In a recent interview with The Schmo, Woodley explained what Perry needs to do to discipline ‘The Problem Child’.

“Be composed and be patient,” Woodley advised Perry. “He knows what it’s like to spar Jake [Paul], he knows Jake will punch and stick and move. When he fought me, he wasn’t trying to knock me down like some of these guys, he was moving around. And I feel like that’s the part that Mike Perry has to look out for…

“He kind of needs to be in hook throwing distance, do damage so he can hit the body, uppercuts, hooks. So if he’s in that long jab distance, I think he needs to learn how to close the gap. He kind of does boxing like Mike Tyson anyway, that’s his style, he mimics Mike Tyson. So I think that he’s going to give Mike [Tyson] a little bit of a cheat sheet on closing that gap as well.”

Paul has won his last three fights, beating Nate Diaz, Andre August, and Ryan Bourland. Perry, on the other hand, hasn’t boxed professionally since 2015.
