Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley looking to rematch
Even after the fight was over the pair of Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley were going after each other. After the fight Woodley protested and asked for an immediate rematch, Paul accepted the challenge but only after Woodley get the ‘I LOVE JAKE PAUL’ tattoo.
“I feel like I won the fight,” Woodley said after the fight. “I feel like Jake’s a great opponent. I didn’t expect him to go down. I and my coaches worked on that. That’s why I came in great shape because I knew he could take a punch. But the fact the one judge gave me two rounds is laughable. No disrespect, but f**k the Fury fight, me and Jake need to run that back.”
“Off the top I want an instant rematch,” Woodley continued. “Nobody going to sell a pay-per-view like we did. Fury ain’t going to do it. Of course I want a rematch. I felt like I won the fight. I felt like he was tough but I hit him and the ropes held him up. I landed the more power shots. When he threw shots they were hitting my gloves. And when he landed a clean shot, which he did. He landed clean shots and I knew he had heavy hands. But I didn’t hit the ground like his other opponents. I walked him down and I landed back. So let’s run it back.”
Jake Paul also stated that he would think of the rematch only after Woodley gets the tattoo.
“I told him, if he wants to get the tattoo, put it on his Instagram,” Paul said during the post-fight news conference. “Permanent tattoo. Then maybe we’ll talk about it. But to be honest, I won convincingly. We’re gonna go back to the drawing board, but I think I proved a lot tonight.”
