Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley promised that Jake Paul is “going to f*cking sleep” in their upcoming rematch in boxing.
Woodley and Paul first met back in August, with Paul winning a split decision in a fight that marked Woodley’s professional boxing debut. Woodley wanted the rematch badly, and he even got a tattoo that said “I love Jake Paul on it,” but Paul chose Tommy Fury as his next opponent. However, with Fury injured and out of the fight, the Paul camp called upon Woodley to fill in on short notice. “The Chosen One” accepted, and he will meet “The Problem Child” on December 18 at Amalie Arena in Tampa, FL.
Taking to his Instagram after the fight was made official, Woodley assured his fans that he is going to show up in shape for this rematch despite the short notice, and he promised that he will knock Paul out.
“One thing I know for sure, my spirit has never been f*cking wrong. 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,” Woodley said (via MMAjunkie.com).
“I’m f*cking in shape. I’m ready to f*cking go. I sparred 12 rounds the other day. I sparred seven rounds last night around the same time I’m gonna fight, midnight, 1 a.m. 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 sh*t. 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? No doubt, no controversy, no bullsh*t, no shenanigans. He’s going to f*cking sleep, I promise you that.”
