Shoutout to Tyron Woodley for getting a second bag to fight Jake Paul.
Paul went on social media to announce Tommy Fury has pulled out of their December 18th fight, and Woodley has agreed to be a late replacement.
As far as what is wrong with Fury, no one knows.
The anticipated Jake Paul-Tommy Fury fight might be over before it started.
Fury has dropped out of the bout due to injury, according to SunSport — which confirmed Daniel Keem‘s initial report.
The Showtime pay-per-view bout is scheduled to take place on Dec. 18 in Tampa. Amanda Serrano and Miriam Gutierrez are the co-main event.
As of Monday morning, there were no specifics about Fury’s reported injury. The British fighter, though, has apparently been battling a cold throughout training camp in Morecambe, not far from his native Manchester.
“Tommy had a little bit of a cold but hopefully he is going to be okay,” promoter Frank Warren recently said, via The Sun.
“He can’t wait for the fight and I know certainly from Jake’s perspective he can’t wait for the fight.”
Normally, a slight cold wouldn’t stop someone from taking a fight worth millions of dollars, so we will have to see what the Furys have to say once they get a chance to speak on it.
Paul says he will give Woodley an extra $500k if he knocks him out.
I assume this is on the top of the seven-figure payday Woodley will receive for the rematch. It is quite possible that Woodley will have made more money in these two Jake Paul fights than he did during his entire UFC career.
This says a lot about the UFC pay structure, considering Woodley was a world champion for a lot of that time.
Flip the pages for Paul saying Fury is a B-word and Twitter reacting to the new main event.
