The clock is ticking for Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley’s second boxing bout of 2021.

Showtime released a short documentary for Paul vs Woodley 2, where Woodley shared his true notions about this fight and his rival.

He said, “The fact that he can say he beat me, if I can erase that, that would be worth more than $500,000 to be honest. If you want to make a bet, you never f***ing say you beat me again.”

“He can keep his money, you know, but he won’t do that because to him, it’s not only about money. It’s about him being able to say, ‘I’m a real fighter’. I beat a five-time UFC champion. You know, man, that boils me.”

Paul and Woodley’s previous collision went the distance, and the YouTuber somehow survived the wrath of the ex-UFC elite’s power. After 8 rounds, the judges ruled the decision in ‘The Problem Child’s favor, leaving Woodley livid.

The former UFC kingpin remained assertive on a rematch and he even got a tattoo of Jake Paul’s name (per their wager). However, the 24-year-old moved ahead to seal a fight with ‘TNT’. Later, ‘The Chosen One’ caught a lucky break as Jake Paul approached him the moment Tommy Fury pulled out.

In his first contest with ‘The Problem Child‘, Woodley undoubtedly had terrific mental pressure, as everyone expected him to beat Paul in any way possible.

As a result, ‘The Chosen One’ may have succumbed to the weight of expectations. However, this time, he will have the added motivation to avenge his defeat in his boxing debut. Also, as he has shared the ring with the YouTuber, Tyron Woodley will be calm and composed.
