Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is going after Jake Paul and asking for an immediate rematch after he suffered a decision loss to him in their boxing match.
Tyron Woodley suffered his first professional boxing loss in his debut fight against Jake Paul. The duo had been going at each other for months and they finally got to throw hands at each other on August 29. The fight was a close matchup but the judges awarded the split decision win to Jake Paul. Tyron Woodley immediately protested by saying that he felt he won the fight. The only significant moment of the fight was when Tyron had rocked Jake Paul who fell on the ropes and was barely holding onto them. Apart from them Jake Paul landed more shots as he was more active but faded away by the end of the fight.
Tyron posted a video on Instagram and wrote “I’m your daddy. @jakepaul You my son! and this was after I put you through the ropes”.
After the fight ended, Tyron Woodley made it clear he wants the rematch but whether or not he gets it is uncertain.
“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 was sure that he won the fight but agreed to give Woodley the rematch only if he gets the ‘I LOVE JAKE PAUL’ tattoo. Jake said if Tyron gets the tattoo then they might consider doing the rematch soon.
