Jake Paul says he’s “finished” Tyron Woodley after the former UFC champion backed down on the rematch clause of the pair getting tattooed that says “I love Jake Paul”.
Paul picked up a split decision victory over the 39-year-old in Cleveland last month to continue his undefeated professional career.
After the fight, Woodley agreed to the rematch terms to get a tattoo and shook hands with Paul in the ring, but did not follow through on the bet.
The YouTube celebrity turned professional boxer has now decided to fight Tommy Fury or Jorge Masvidal, the 24-year-old has said.
“I’m done with this,” said Paul ESPN after being asked about the rematch. “I left Tyron in the past. He didn’t stand the bet, he didn’t get the tattoo. So the rematch no longer makes sense. “
“If he’d gotten a tattoo right away, had 10 million views on his Instagram video, then everyone would have been super excited, there would have been a ton of press around it.
“And I sort of had to do it. I couldn’t really deny it then, because if he wants to be a man of my word, then I have to be a man of my word. So he screwed up. He missed out on another big paycheck because of his ego. “
Paul clashed with Fury after his win over Woodley and has also exchanged words with UFC contender Masvidal in recent weeks.
Love Island star Fury improved his professional record to 7-0 as he won in his United States debut on the undercard Paul-Woodley and Paul said the couple’s camps were in talks on a proposed fight.
“He’s the boxer in quotes. He comes from a legendary line, ”said Paul. “People keep saying, ‘Fight a real boxer, fight a real boxer. So this fight is definitely interesting for me.
“I don’t know if his name is big enough. We are still looking at pay-per-view numbers that came in from the UK. “
Masvidal urged Dana White to let him out of his UFC contract in order to fight Paul and vowed to beat the 24-year-old if he gets the president’s blessing.
“If Dana let him out of his contract, it would probably be the biggest fight of anyone we’re talking about,” added Paul.
“I wouldn’t like anything anymore. It’s a good test for my skills, isn’t it? He’s the ‘Gamebred’ street fighter, with his hands up. I would like to. I would love this fight. “
