Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley will be getting his shot at redemption as he is all set to rematch Jake Paul in their boxing match. Jake Paul was all set to box the undefeated, Tommy Fury but unfortunately, Fury was forced to pull out due to an illness and a rib injury and was eventually replaced by Tyron Woodley. The pair will rematch in Tampa, Florida on December 18. The duo previously fought on August 29, 2021. Jake Paul won that fight by split decision. One judge scored the fight 77–75 for Woodley, while the other two judges scored it 77–75 and 78–74 in the favor of Jake Paul.
Ahead of their rematch Tyron Woodley is already fired up and says he has been preparing for their rematch since October.
“I want to let you guys know I’m excited about this fight,” Woodley said on Instagram (h/t FightHype.com). “I also want to let you guys know that something told me – end of September, beginning of October I told my boxing coach, ‘My spirit ain’t sitting right. The fight that’s supposed to happen is me and Jake. This Tommy Fury fight doesn’t even make f*cking sense. Like, who gives a f*ck about that fight? Nobody do.’ … I told my coach that and I didn’t just speak it and tell him that, I said, watch what I’m telling you. I told my strength and conditioning coach and my boxing coach, ‘This fight ain’t gonna happen. Let’s train as if we are fighting for this f*cking fight.’ I flew him in from Miami – my strength and conditioning coach is already in St. Louis – and I literally started training.”
Tyron Woodley says he is ready for the fight and is in amazing shape
“One thing I know for sure, my spirit has never been f*cking wrong,” Woodley said. “My intuition, my alignment, so when I got the call it was kind of funny, because sometimes people call you and they think you out of shape. They think you fat and they think you greasy and they think you not ready. I was ready and I’m so thankful.”
“I’m f*cking in shape, I’m ready to f*cking go. I sparred 12 rounds the other day, I sparred 7 rounds last night around the same time I’m gonna fight, midnight-1 am. I’m f*cking excited and I’m thankful and I’m blessed. I’m blessed for the opportunity and I promise you, I didn’t even hesitate. That motherf*cker can say a lot of shit, if you ask the people, when they asked me, within moments, ‘Yes’ was the first thing that came out of my mouth. ‘What the f*ck you mean? Yeah.”
Tyron Woodley predicts that he’ll put Jake Paul to sleep
