Because he's an inexperienced fighter, and that's what they tend to do. They get dropped or hit with a standing eight-count and feel the need to "get that back." Come on mate, you've seen enough boxers at his level in fights do exactly that to know how he'd likely have reacted.

 

More often than that ive seen fighters get hurt and not want it to happen again.

Jake Paul has world class veteran boxers in his corner and he's boxing to instruction, and to his credit he seems to do it well. The corner wouldnt have instructed him to go out and get one back because he was still in an advantageous position. If Jake Paul had hit the deck he likely would have boxed the next round exactly as he did anyway. Of course we'll never know and this is a stupid argument but thats how i believe it would have played out based on what we saw.

Similar to wand, I've had a few mates that are into boxing, and not MMA, bring up it was a fix due to Woodley seemingly avoiding putting any sort of serious work in, as they saw how deadly he looked when he was arsed throwing something serious. I'd maybe think that too if I hadn't watched Woodley do this for years.

Oh well. Fair play Woodley for getting paid and at least he didn't look as bad as Askren. Although I'd be proper annoyed if I was him, that I let the fight get away from me. Hopefully he gets another pay day out of it.

Tommy Fury looks miles off. No wonder Jake Paul wants to fight him soon.

You'll always get "fix" chat around these lower level fights, i think people are just used to seeing high level boxing so when it looks a bit clumsy or doesn't flow like you're used to, its easy to cry fix.

Seeing some tweets saying Woodley took home around 1 Million, surely that's the biggest pay day of his career? If i was a top UFC fighter i would be asking questions.

That event sold over 1 million PPV's though, did it not? How many UFC fighters deliver those kinds of numbers regularly?
