‘Excited’ Tyron Woodley was offered Jake Paul rematch in sudden phone call

Tyron Woodley is reportedly “excited” at the possibility of a boxing rematch with bitter rival Jake Paul.

Social media star Paul, 24, was set to fight former Love Island winner Tommy Fury, 22, in Florida on December 18 until the Englishman pulled out due to a broken rib.

But manager of former-UFC Welterweight Champion Woodley, 39, has confirmed that his client will replace Fury after agreeing a rematch showdown in August.

Malki Kawa revealed that Woodley is “excited” to get another opportunity at facing Paul, who he only lost to on points in the summer.

The claim comes despite the YouTube and TikTok sensation claiming that a second fight with Woodley would no longer interest fans.

Kawa said: “I’m excited to get this deal done and to have Tyron have the fight he was supposed to originally have anyway.”

Woodley was defeated in a contest 190lbs across eight rounds, although he managed to land a big punch which nearly knocked down his younger counterpart.

He was told by Paul that he would only receive a rematch if he got an “I Love Jake Paul” tattoo, which he reportedly got to no avail.

But Paul has now announced that he will face Woodley next, even claiming that the MMA fighter can win extra cash by knocking him out.

Paul said: “The good news is Mr Tyron Woodley – we called him up and were like, ‘Hey do you wanna take the fight?’

“He has been training, he goes, ‘Sure, I’ll take the fight, let’s do the rematch.’

“I’m giving him $500,000 extra if he can knock me out.

“Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley 2 – leave no doubt. I didn’t knock him out the first time, I’m coming back and I’m getting that crazy highlight-reel knockout.”
