Covington said that Paul only wants weaker fighters who can beat and not the tougher ones.
“I think Woodley could do it, I think he could land a knockout punch and get it done”, when asked who would win between Paul and Woodley. “You know I’ve had some guys in my gym, Colby Covington Incorporated MMA Masters, that have went to train with Jake Paul in Miami and you know they’ve all kind of said the same information that they went there and they exposed him. They made him look bad and of course they turned the cameras off and they’re not taking pictures that day and they’d never invite these guys back because Jake you know, Snake Paul only wants kids that he can beat up and knock out, boost his ego and his confidence. He doesn’t want guys that actually going to push him in the gym and make him better because like we said before, he’s not a real fighter and he’s a little Disney star.”
Tyron Woodley is set to face Jake Paul in the main event of a professional boxing event on Sunday, August 29 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio, live on SHOWTIME PPV.
