Jake Paul insists the shot that knocked out Tyron Woodley in December was not “lucky” and warned rivals he was only getting stronger.
The YouTube star-turned-boxer flatly stopped Woodley in their rematch in Florida to bring his professional record to 5-0.
After stopping all the fighters he’s faced in the ring, including former UFC welterweight Ben Askren, Paul’s stock is slowly but steadily increasing inside the square circle.
There are naturally skeptics the 24-year-old has to contend with; his lavish lifestyle and complete lack of amateur training draw a lot of attention to his wacky claims that he “practices boxing.”
Still, the American insists fans and future enemies alike shouldn’t doubt his ability to turn off the lights all at once, as he said in an episode of Boxing with Chris Mannix.
“I’ve done this to every person I’ve fought,” Paul said in rebuttal to those who claim the punch was lucky.
“So it’s not like I knocked everyone out violently in one way or another.
“My power just keeps on increasing, and I’m planning the shot, you watch the whole footage.

“I think I see his hand going down, I think again, going towards the body, then back up with all my might and bring my hips up.
