Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Rematch Confirmed, Tommy Fury Out With Injury

Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley will fight once again after Tommy Fury pulls out with an injury.

A rematch between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley is all set and not in the way many might have imagined. Tommy Fury has backed out of his upcoming fight that was scheduled against Paul and Woodley will not step in.

The bout between Paul and Fury was all set for Dec. 18 in Tampa. Apparently Fury, who is the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, had to pull out due to an injury. It was confirmed by both Paul and Woodley that there will be a rematch instead.

“When my team woke me up on Friday to tell me Tommy Fumbles was pulling out, I told them I’ll fight anyone on December 18th. Troy, Trey, Trevor, Travis,… I don’t give a fuck who it is,” Paul wrote on Instagram.

Jake Paul continued to explain that Tyron Woodley would get an extra $500,000 if he is able to win by knockout. Paul is confident in his ability and believes that this fight will be easier than the first.

“First time I outboxed him. This time I’m gonna punish him and leave no doubt. #PaulWoodley @showtimeboxing@mostvaluablepromotions

In their first meeting, Paul defeated Woodley by split decision. He is looking for redemption in what will not be a much-anticipated night of boxing.

The cruiserweight bout between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley will headline the night but there are some other fights to watch. Amanda Serrano and Miriam Gutierrez are set to meet as well in a lightweight bout. Liam Paro and Yomar Alama will meet in a junior welterweight bout.

Rounding out the card will be former NBA star Deron Williams and former future Hall-of-Fame running back Frank Gore. This is not the first time that former athletes will step in the ring. Of course, Paul knocked out Nate Robinson in his first fight.

Jake Paul will look to make it five wins in a row to begin his boxing career. Tyron Woodley will have a chance to avenge his previous loss. It was assumed that there would be a rematch following their first meeting and it is coming a bit sooner than expected.
