Tyron Woodley used to be a renowned UFC fighter. He has a lot of accolades of his own, as he used to hold the title of UFC welterweight champion. But in the Boxing scene, Tyron hasn’t been able to do anything much impressive. Last year he faced a brutal knockout defeat against Jake Paul. 

Is Tyron Woodley X KSI going to be a reality soon? 

KSI has an impressive record in boxing so far. He is currently undefeated with a 3-0 streak, which is rare among newcomers. He has a praiseworthy 67% knockout ratio and quite a strong punching ability. With his natural talents and hard work, KSI has proven himself to be a worthy adversary in the ring.

After his fight with Logan Paul, KSI had another claim for fame in boxing when he faced two opponents on the same night. At the O2 arena in London, JJ successfully defeated Swarmz and Boxer Luis Pineda. This amazing feat put him in the spotlight of the boxing world. 

After his fight in the O2 arena, JJ had shared the next five men he wants to fight, and Woodly wasn’t on that list. But still, a beef cooked up between them. On Sunday in the Coca-Cola Stadium, Dubai, where the Deji vs Floyd Mayweather Jr fight was held, KSI admitted that he wants to fight Tyron Woodley just to prove that he can knock him out even faster than Jake Paul. 

JJ and Tyron clashed against each other on Twitter before they stepped into the ring

Tyron was furious after getting mocked online. He replied to KSI in an interview with Boxing Social, he said, “My thing is, don’t talk s*** on the internet if you don’t want to fight. If you want to use my name, you want to use my stripes, sign the contract.” Implying that there is already a contract ready for their fight, all it needs is for KSI to sign it.
