Jake Paul beats Tyron Woodley by split decision

It’s going to be harder than ever to quiet Jake Paul now. 

On Sunday night, Paul beat former UFC champion Tyron Woodley by split decision, and the boisterous YouTube celebrity improved to 4-0 as a professional boxer. 

The judges scored the eight-round fight 77-75 and 78-74 in favor of Paul, 77-75 in favor of Woodley.

Paul, 24, was facing what was widely viewed as his toughest challenge yet in Woodley, 39, a former UFC welterweight champ with knockout power. 

In the fourth round, Woodley clobbered Paul and the ropes appeared to keep Paul on his feet. Paul looked wobbly, but he survived the moment prevailed.

But Paul, throwing and landing more punches, prevailed in front of an announced sellout crowd of 16,000 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, a short drive from Paul’s hometown of Westlake.
