It is easy to hate Jake Paul. Some of it is out of envy because he and his brother have made endless money from being annoying dipshits … and some of it is simply because it is natural to hate annoying dipshits.
Now that the Paul Bros have worked their way into massive paydays boxing, it is also easy to root for whomever their opponent is to beat their faces in. Floyd Mayweather had to hold Logan Paul up for a few seconds after knocking him out in their fight… and now there is some pretty clear video that Jake gave Tyron Woodley a signal to eat a punch after Woodley dominated the first five rounds of their last fight.
TO THE TAPE:
The win moved Paul a 5-0 pro record and theoretically gave him his most impressive result to date — knocking out a legit fighter in Woodley.
I am not suggesting that Woodley did not, in fact, get knocked out… I think he did.
I am suggesting that the wrist movement (twice) was sus.
Paul didn’t throw a single punch the entire fight that had that movement of his hand. He certainly stepped back and made the motion twice, so it was obvious, and then he buried a blast to get a win
There was no chance he was winning this fight if it went to the judges and it is better for him and his brand to keep the charade going because the purses will continue to escalate if he keeps winning.
I am also of the mind that there will not be a fight between Paul and any legitimate boxer. It would only expose him for being a puncher and not a good fighter/boxer.
Conspiracy theory? Maybe.
Solid evidence. Yes.
