Tyron Woodley ‘excited’ to replace Tommy Fury and secure Jake Paul rematch as Brit withdraws from Tampa fight due to medical condition


Tyron Woodley is said to be “excited” by the prospect of replacing Tommy Fury and getting a rematch with Jake Paul.

Fury, the former Love Island contestant, had to withdraw from the fight with Paul due to illness, which seemed to put the whole map at risk.

However, Woodley’s manager Malki Kawa revealed his client was “excited” to get the rematch with Paul after verbally agreeing to a second fight in August.

Paul walked the distance with the former UFC champion in Cleveland, Ohio and claimed he would only accept a second fight if Woodley got an “I Love Jake Paul” tattoo.

And, although the YouTube star has insisted that a second fight won’t draw fans in the same way as the second, Kawa insists her man is up for the challenge, especially now that ‘it was revealed that he would get a waste of money if he could secure the knockout blow.

“I am delighted to make this deal,” Kawa said. “And for Tyron to have the fight he was originally supposed to have anyway.”

The first fight was fought at 190 pounds in eight rounds, although it remains to be seen whether that will be the case this time around.

Woodley, who competed in a 20-pound weight class lighter than that during his MMA career, may well be called up later today with an official statement on the expected Paul vs. Fury fight.

Woodley hasn’t fought since that August night, yet has campaigned on social media to bring the 24-year-old social media sensation back to the ring since.

During Fury’s removal, Paul had no sympathy.

“It’s official, Tommy Fury is the biggest dick in boxing,” he said.

“He withdrew from combat, the Furys withdrew from combat due to a health issue.

“Who knows what’s going on in this camp, I think he’s got a bad case of puss-ite.

“At first I couldn’t believe the news, it still doesn’t seem real.

“He searched the biggest bag of his life. Now he will look at home and pay me $ 60 instead of getting millions of dollars to fight me.

“I fought with a broken nose, I fought ill, to end this is boxing.

“It’s official, he was scared. I think the pressure hit him, the chatter hit him.

“The good news is, Mr. Tyron Woodley – we called him up and we were like, ‘Hey, do you want to fight? “

“He trained, he said, ‘Sure I’m going to fight, let’s do revenge.’

“I’ll give him another $ 500,000 if he can knock me out.”

“Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 – leave no doubt. I didn’t KO him the first time, I come back and I get this crazy KO from the highlights.
