Jake Paul was initially assigned to face Tommy Fury on December 18 in Florida. Unfortunately, after months of build-up, Fury reportedly suffered a rib injury in his camp and walked away. Although Tyron Woodley has slid in to fill the void, ‘The Problem Child’ has continued to take shots at ‘TNT’

Jake Paul said, “You know I just thought to myself, it’s funny how these professionals like Tommy Fury, who is considered a professional boxer, gets sick, breaks rib, and doesn’t want to fight. I fought sick, I fought hurt.”

He also called his upcoming fight a bank robbery-

“You gotta go in there and get the job done. And then they are like, Oh you got Tyron Woodley now. No problem, that’s why I got the ski mask on. They are going to give me a big bag to go to beat the guy, I already beat. This is a bank robbery.”

These comments show that ‘The Problem Child’ is extremely confident in his ability to go 5-0 as a professional boxer. However, Woodley has spent time with his opponent in a professional setting and can craft a game plan.

The original scrap on August 29 was a slugfest that could have gone in either way. Although Paul earned a controversial decision-win, the former UFC champion did enough damage to ensure the 24-year-old didn’t get a unanimous decision. He almost stopped ‘The Problem Child’ in round four, but couldn’t capitalize on that moment.

While Woodley will know what he needs to do, even Jake Paul knows what ‘The Chosen One’ will bring to the ring. Hence, this weekend may see fans witness a different kind of fight.
