Jake Paul Agrees To Tyron Woodley Rematch On One Condition

Jake Paul's fight with Tommy Fury may have to wait, after the American agreed to a rematch with Tyron Woodley under one condition.

Paul took his boxing record to 4-0 on Sunday night, when he defeated former UFC champion Woodley on a split decision victory over eight rounds.

It was the first time in his short professional career that the former YouTuber had been taken to a decision, or even beyond the second round.

With the 24-year-old having got the win, it was expected that Tommy Fury might be his next opponent, with the pair having swapped insults over the past few months, but instead his next fight could be against Woodley again.

After the fight was over, the MMA star called on his opponent to forget the Fury fight and "run it back," Paul responded by saying only if Woodley made good on a bet and got "I love Jake Paul" tattooed on his body.

Fury was on the undercard on Sunday, his first fight on US soil, and he also came through on a points decision, making the meeting with Paul look inevitable.

The British boxer, brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson, called out his rival after his win, claiming that Paul 'should have an easy night' and saying there was 'no excuse not to take the fight.'

However, the social media stars night wasn't as 'easy' as expected, with Woodley rocking Paul in the fourth round, in a moment that caused people to claim the fight was rigged.

Woodley didn't look to follow up on his big overhand right, that was only not a knockdown because the ropes saved his opponent. There were claims of rigging in Paul's previous fight, when he beat former UFC star Ben Askren in a first round knockout.

After the fight, Fury and Paul, whose rivalry has mostly been played out on social media, finally came face-to-face in the backstage area.

The former Love Island contestant told his rival to 'stop running' so they could get the fight on before the pair were split up by security teams.

Speaking afterwards, the undefeated American claimed it would be an easy fight, saying, "I would run that s*** easy - that's an easier fight than Tyron in my opinion.

"People say he's a real boxer - OK, maybe, let's run it real boxer."

Elsewhere on the undercard, British heavyweight Daniel Dubois beat Joe Cusumano on his debut in the US, with a first round knockout to take his record to 17-1.
