Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley UK time: When are the ring walks?

Tyron Woodley will get the chance to avenge his loss to Jake Paul this weekend, four months after being outpointed by the YouTube star.

Former UFC champion Woodley lost to Paul via split decision in August, failing to finish the 24-year-old after hurting him in the middle of the contest.

Paul’s victory over the 39-year-old set up a clash with former Love Island contest Tommy Fury – half-brother of heavyweight boxing champion Tyson. But Fury suffered a broken rib and chest infection during his training camp, forcing the Briton to withdraw from this weekend’s bout – and allowing Woodley to step in to face his fellow American again.

Woodley initially tried to set up a rematch with Paul by getting an “I love Jake,” tattoo, per a bet between the opponents, but the YouTuber overlooked the wrestling specialist in favour of a meeting with Fury. Now, however, Paul and Woodley will go head-to-head once again, with Paul promising to pay Woodley a $500,000 bonus if the former UFC champion can knock him out.

Who is Tyron Woodley?

Woodley is a former UFC welterweight champion, with a background in wrestling and a powerful right hand. The 39-year-old lost his title to current champion Kamaru Usman in March 2019, a result which marked the start of a four-fight losing run. That streak led Woodley to be cut from the UFC, with his next move in mixed martial arts currently unknown. It did, however, allow the Missouri native the chance to box Paul in August – and this month.

Here’s a full breakdown of Woodley’s career and the threat he poses to Paul.

Will Jake Paul still fight Tommy Fury?

Following his withdrawal from his scheduled clash with Paul, Fury had this to say:


“I can’t express how disappointed I am and I really do hope we can get this fight rescheduled in the new year.

“I want this fight to happen more than anything. I’m now regretfully putting my focus on recovery and a further reschedule date.”
