In a four-round exhibition clash between former NBA star Deron Williams and the NFL’s third all-time leading rusher Frank Gore on the undercard of the rematch between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley. In the end, Williams was able to get the split decision victory in a rare exhibition that had scoring from ringside judges.
Williams entered the ring with a massive advantage in height and reach and put more than a decade of experience training in boxing gyms to work early, using a long jab to keep Gore from getting in range. In the opening round, that jab allowed Williams to follow with a sharp right hand that buzzed Gore.
