After Tommy Fury had to withdraw from confronting the Youtuber, Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley will fight again tonight.
Due to sickness, Fury, a former Love Island competitor, had to withdraw from his bout with Paul, putting the entire card in peril.
Woodley’s manager, Malki Kawa, said his client was “ecstatic” to get the rematch after going the distance with his opponent in August.
Since then, the former UFC champion has been campaigning on social media to fight the 24-year-old, including getting a ‘I Love Jake Paul’ tattoo.
The fight will take place at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida on Saturday, December 18.
Paul and Woodley will fight in an eight-round cruiserweight bout.
During the summer, Paul won a split decision over Woodley, extending his professional record to 4-0. (3 KOs).

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley Fight predictions
Brian Campbell: In many respects, this rematch has a chance to go just as the first did, because both boxers have had time to reflect on where they fell short. Given Woodley’s need to move quickly to get inside and overcome his size disadvantage, there’s reason to believe viewers will see more action this time around as the former UFC champion seeks a finish. The issue that Woodley will eventually face is that Paul is larger, stronger, and younger. He’s also capable of producing the finish he failed to deliver in August after tasting Woodley’s power.
Brent Brookhouse: The first bout with Paul exposed Woodley’s major flaws in his UFC career. Woodley makes the mistake of waiting too long for the perfect punch, allowing his opponents to outwork him. In the fourth round of the first bout, a Woodley right sent Paul sliding backward into the ropes, but Woodley never really got that additional gear, allowing Paul to outstrike him 71-52 in landed punches. Given Paul’s height and reach advantages, stronger jab, and strength advantages in the rematch, Woodley will have to be a significantly more aggressive fighter. The problem is that it doesn’t appear that Woodley has what it takes to go all-in in the manner that he has to if he wants to win. Given the short notice and Paul’s readiness for a huge fight, this is shaping up to be a long night for Woodley.
