But a look at the punch stats reveals the key to the fight, with the YouTube star’s jab fundamental to persuading the judges combined with his more efficient power shots.
Compubox confirmed that Paul landed 19 more punches in total, while outlanding Woodley at a better percentage – 34.3 パーセントから 31.9 パーセント. Included in that were 22 body punches, 16 more than Woodley, who was often seen out of range with his conservative approach.
Woodley’s best work came in the fourth and eighth rounds when he landed eight more punches combined, including one shot that stunned Paul to send him sprawling into the ropes.
But there was not enough activity to win the rounds, ただで 11 total jabs connecting over the course of the fight.
これにもかかわらず, Woodley remonstrated with Paul after the decision was announced: “You are the one that got wobbled, almost sent through the ropes.
“If these ropes weren’t 7ft 2in, you’d have gone through the ropes. I landed the power punches.”
To which Paul replied: “You had your opportunity, you had your chance.
“I was nothing but respectful to you now. If you get the tattoo, ‘I love Jake Paul’, let’s run it back.”
Woodley was quick to accept the terms, snapping back and shaking Paul’s hand: "ベット, さあ行こう!」
The performance was not up to Paul’s expectations, and the YouTube star conceded his legs didn’t feel right in the ring.
Paul added: 「何と言ったらいいのかわからない, he’s a tough opponent, he’s been fighting for 20 年, I’ve been doing it for three, this one’s for Cleveland.
“It was a tougher fight than expected. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. All respect to Tyron. He’s a hall of famer, he’s a good fighter.
“There was a lot of s*** talk, there’s no hard feelings. I want to cry, but I’m a little tired. To win when all the pressure is on, he’s a tough opponent.”
"わからない [もしも トミーフューリー 次です]. I haven’t stopped, 私は自分が誰であるかを理解する必要があります. I’m keeping my head on straight, 準備ができたらジムに戻ります. どれどれ。"
