Tyron Woodley is said to be “excited” by the prospect of replacing Tommy Fury and getting a rematch with Jake Paul.
Fury, the former Love Island contestant, had to withdraw from the fight with Paul due to illness, which seemed to put the whole map at risk.
However, Woodley’s manager Malki Kawa revealed his client was “excited” to get the rematch after going the distance with the YouTuber in August.
The former UFC champion has campaigned on social media to take on the 24-year-old since then and has even had an “I Love Jake Paul” tattoo.
