Brian Campbell: Woodley largely represents the toughest challenge in Paul’s short career, which means that this is still a fight that seems to be winable through knockouts at any time. Given this unpredictability, if Paul succeeds in turning it from a leap into a war, many of the advantages Woodley may bring as a boxer may not work.
