Tommy Fury slates Tyron Woodley for accepting Jake Paul gift before fight

Tommy Fury has slammed ex-UFC star Tyron Woodley for accepting a Rolex from Jake Paul.

Fury and Paul were set to meet in Tampa Bay, Florida, on December 18, but Fury was forced to pull out of the bout with broken ribs.

Instead, Woodley stepped in, after the pair had gone the distance leading to spilt decision win for Paul in August, for their rematch.

Paul made short work of the former UFC Champion when he dropped Woodley with a wicked hook.

And Fury has now blasted Woodley for accepting the gift from the YouTuber days before the bout was scheduled to take place.

Fury told Unibet Lowdown: “When Woodley accepted that Rolex from him I thought ‘that is not a real champion’.

"If he offered me a Rolex I would throw it back in his face. I don’t want anything from him apart from a fight in the ring.

“I understand mutual respect before a fight but not all that nicey-nicey stuff, this is the fight game

“How is he supposed to get the ring and knock lumps out of him when he has just given him a Rolex? Presents and gifts and all that s***, what is that all about?”

Promoter Frank Warren is looking to get the bout back on track for early 2022.

"We will be looking to reschedule in early 2022," Warren recently revealed to Sky Sports.

"Jake said that Tommy Fury was 'lucky' he wasn't in there but really Tommy was extremely unlucky to miss out with his injury.

"A fit Tommy Fury is a very different proposition to Tyron Woodley."
