Max Kellerman — one of the leading experts in boxing — says he’s genuinely intrigued by the Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley fight.
… and if Jake can knock out the former UFC star, he’ll be legitimately impressed.
“That’s an interesting fight. It’s an interesting event,” the ESPN star told us out in NYC.
24-year-old Jake and 39-year-old Woodley are set to throw down in August — in what will undoubtedly be the biggest challenge of Paul’s short career.
So far, Paul has knocked out two pro athletes — Nate Robinson and Ben Askren — but hasn’t faced an opponent known for being a true striker.
… until now.
Woodley fought his way to the top of the UFC’s welterweight division in 2016 — knocking out Robbie Lawler to win the belt.
But, he’s lost his last 4 fights — leading some to believe he’s washed.
“I don’t care how faded Woodley is … if Jake Paul knocks out Tyron Woodley, he did something,” Kellerman explained.
“Woodley can strike. So, we’re not gonna confuse it with a title fight in boxing … but okay, I’ll be impressed.”
Jake has promised to KO Woodley in 2 rounds. Woodley’s response? “HAHAHHAHA.”
We’ll see who’s right …
Meanwhile … we also spoke with Max about the Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather fight and he explained why people who have a “beef” with the event need to get over it.
