The ‘War’ must go on, Jake Paul reignites his rivalry with Tyron Woodley in this weekend’s rematch.“Up the ante, prove there’s no knockout clause. The fact that people think that, they’re idiots and I’m willing to put money on it,” Tyron Woodley was not allowed to KO him, Jake Paul claims.
A $500,000 bonus has been offered to Tyrin Woodley by Jake Paul if he wins this weekend’s rematch by knockout as the Youtuber Jake Paul denies claims about his first victory.
The social media star won by split decision in August and successfully preserved his unbeaten record. Both champions will face each other in the ring again in Saturday’s rematch in Tampa.
Jake Paul said, “You know, I just thought to myself. It’s funny how these professionals like Tommy Fury, who is a professional boxer, get sick, break a rib, and don't want to fight.”
“I’ve fought sick, I’ve fought hurt. You’ve got to go in there and get the job done, and then they’re like, ‘You’ve got Tyron Woodley now.’
“No problem. That’s why I’ve got the ski mask on. They’re going to give me a big bag to go and beat the guy I’ve already beat. This is a bank robbery.”
Tyron Woodley will receive an additional bonus of $500k for a knockout win, Paul confirmed in response to rumors that his opponent was not allowed to knockout him.
Paul got staggered by Woodley in the fourth round of their previous fight but admitted he was wary of the threat posed by the Youtuber-turned-boxer.
Woodley said, “Jake has shown in his fights, you watch the Nate Robinson fight, you watch even when he knocks out Ben Askren, he wasn’t really looking at them at the time.”
“They walked forward, he looked like he was going to unload on Ben’s body and then came over the top.”
“Nate ran in and rushed into a right hand.”
“You’ve got the respect power. I’m not going to sit up here and act like he doesn’t have power. He does have power, and I have power. That’s why you guys want to watch this fight again.”
