Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley went to war a second time tonight (Sat., Dec. 18, 2021) from Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida in the main event of Showtime Boxing: “Paul vs. Woodley 2.” Not all that long ago, Paul wrote off the idea of rematching Woodley. The time for that bout had seemingly passed, and Paul was ready for a new challenge. When Tommy Fury withdrew from his match up vs. Paul just a couple weeks out from the event, Woodley was ready and willing to jump back in opposite his heated rival.
What was at stake in tonight’s main event? Pride, mostly. Paul was looking to continue his undefeated rise through the unofficial boxing ranks, whereas Woodley was trying to avenge his own performance.
