Jake Paul Not Interested In Tyron Woodley Rematch, Suggests Tommy Fury As Next Opponent

Jake Paul doesn't have much interest in a rematch with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.

Paul sat down with the guys over at the Full Send Podcast and discussed why a potential second fight with Woodley doesn't make sense, especially after the former Octagon star has refused to get a tattoo as part of a pre-fight bet agreed upon by the pair.

“I’m like, ‘Where’s the tattoo?’ Now he’s saying you have to sign the contract and then I’ll get the tattoo,” Paul said (h/t MMA Fighting). “The tattoo was a bet before this fight. It was the loser had to get the tattoo. So now he’s trying to change it to make it for the rematch. It doesn’t make sense [to fight him again]. If he would have gotten the tattoo now and that clip goes viral and everyone’s like ‘Jake do it,’ I’d be like, ‘I kind of have to do this.’ But he f*cked up. He’s saying, ‘Oh, I’ll get it once you sign the contract.’ No, you f*cked up. Just get the tattoo and let me decide from there. But I think it’s on to bigger and better things. I want to fight a real boxer. We’ll see what the cards have in store.”

He continued on to say he's got his eyes on his next bout being against a legitimate boxer, most likely in the form of Tommy Fury. The 22-year old younger half-brother of current WBC and The Ring heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is undefeated as a professional boxer, sitting at 7-0 after he defeated Paul's sparring partner, Anthony Taylor, via a unanimous decision on the opening bout of the main card of the Paul-Woodley event on August 29.

“I think Tommy Fury’s probably at the top of that list,” Paul said. “He’s skilled. He’s undefeated. He’s [Tyson Fury’s brother] and he’s a real boxer. He has like four million followers on Instagram, good engagement. He has the fans from his relationship thing like they fell in love on a show or some sh*t like that.”
