However, Paul’s arch-nemesis, Tommy Fury, believes this fight might be rigged.

Speaking to Pro Boxing Fans, he said, “Well the UFC is the best bit, and he’s (Tyron Woodley) not a boxer, he’s an MMA fighter, MMA fighters aren’t the best standalone people have it, that’s why he’s (Jake Paul) picking him. Jake Paul‘s very cunning. You know, he’s earning a fortune, and trust me, he’s not going to pick anyone that’s going to beat him.

“So somewhere down the clause, he’ll say listen, Woodley, make it look good, but you got to lose. Because Jake Paul would not be in that ring whenever the fight is. If he was guaranteed a loss, you know. So I don’t mind, it is what it is,”

Until now, Paul has fought thrice, and he’s overpowered every opponent he’s faced. Moreover, he wants to elevate his boxing stint by challenging himself against the best of opponents. That said, he’ll look forward to facing and giving his best against the former UFC welterweight champ, Tyron Woodley.

Despite Paul taking cosmic challenges in the boxing universe, Fury still feels ‘The Problem Child’ will fight no one who has the audacity to beat him.
