We’ll give Paul credit because he stepped into a ring with a former UFC champion. But there’s no pretending that Tyron Woodley is a great boxer. The MMA star possessed fearsome knockout power but had limited technical boxing skills. Paul exposed this when they fought twice with the second bout coming on short notice.
These were very frustrating matches because Woodley refused to throw his hands. He rattled Paul in the first match with one strong connection but failed to follow up. In the end, some people called it a fix because of his limited output. However, Paul’s wins didn’t make him the next incarnation of Muhammad Ali despite beating Woodley twice (via TalkSport).
