Mike Tyson Backs Jake Paul To Beat Tyron Woodley

BoxingScene.com 23 August, 2021 - 07:29pm

Paul (3-0, 3 KOs), a social media star, will be taking part in his fourth pro bout.

Woodley, a former UFC champion and at one time regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in MMA, will be making his pro boxing debut. 

Tyson is a big fan of both Paul and Woodley. He believes Woodley took the bout to get one final payday.

"I'm proud of them. Are they gonna fight? He's fighting an experienced fighter. That's so cool," Tyson stated on his podcast.

"I don't know. Paul's a real good striker, and I think people do him a disservice when they go in there and say, 'He's blonde-haired and blue-eyed, he's a white boy', and I think that also builds their [opponent's] courage up and causes them to get knocked out.

"Jake's gonna beat him. Woodley's not a puncher like that, that's why he wants to fight this guy, to get his last payday probably."

For his part, Paul is hoping the fight plays out for a little bit.

In his last outing, back in April, Paul knocked out retired UFC fighter Ben Askren in one round.

In his other two fights, he blasted out AnesonGib in one round and NBA star Nate Robinson in two.

Woodley is Paul's most experienced and certainly his most dangerous opponent to date. However, Paul - who himself is still very much a prospect when it comes to the squared circle - holds the edge when it comes to boxing experience.

Dubois v Cusumano date: UK start time, full undercard, live stream, how to watch

talkSPORT.com 23 August, 2021 - 08:58am

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services.

The 23-year-old is hoping to put himself in contention for a world title fight soon but needs to rebuild his career following his damaging loss to Joe Joyce.

Dubois suffered a nasty eye injury in that defeat to Joyce in November last year but bounced back with a 15th KO career victory over Bogdan Dinu in June.

As for Cusumano, the American has a decent record with 19 career wins – 17 by knockout – and three defeats.

Dubois will need to be on his A-game and put on a show stateside.

The 10-round heavyweight bout will take place on Sunday, August 29 and is being held at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio.

It forms part of the undercard for Jake Paul v Tyron Woodley with Tommy Fury also in action on a jampacked event.

The fight will be on BT Sport Box Office in the UK – costing £16.95 – and can be purchased through the BT Player, on BT Sport’s website or their app.

The show can also be purchased and then live streamed on mobile devices with the BT Sport Box Office app for iOS and Android.

Daniel Dubois: “I’m excited for the experience. To be fighting out there will be a great show because these guys bring a lot of publicity and hype.

“To make a statement out there is what I want to do. To get people talking about me.

“I will take my time, not go looking for a knockout, but when it comes it comes. If I do everything properly and not underestimate him, then I’ll take him out then move on.

“I will make a big statement.

“Cusumano had 19 fights so he knows what he’s doing, he knows his way around the ring.

“He will be there to fight, to make a name for himself too. That’s what I need, these kinds of fights.

“I need to win, to get back on track and keep building.”

Joe Cusumano: “Oh, man, I’ve seen a lot of his fights. I’m also a boxing fan, so I love watching fights and he’s always been an exciting fighter.

“His mentor was Mike Tyson, the same as me – I loved Mike Tyson also, especially when growing up. So yeah, he’s [Dubois] a great fighter.

“I’m pleased to fight him, I’m happy about it, this is a dream come true for me. He’s a great fighter and I’m very excited.

“I just like to fight! I’m a fighter, I grew up loving fights, watching fights. My father was a big-time boxing fan as well.

“ So I get in there and I do what I gotta do, to survive, and to land some big punches. I think once I land my punches, that’s when the fight goes my way.

“It’s heavyweight boxing. This is the heavyweight division. I’m a very humble guy, I just know it’s gonna be a great fight.

“I’m coming to do my part and I’m sure he’s coming to do his part. We both have many knockouts – I have 19 wins, 17 by KO, he has 15 KO’s out of 16 wins. And someone’s getting knocked out I believe.”
