Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley live stream: How to watch fight online and on TV

The YouTube star and former UFC champion will contest a rematch this weekend

Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley will box one another for the second time when they go head-to-head this weekend.

YouTube star Paul defeated the former UFC champion via split decision in August, setting up a highly-anticipated fight with Tommy Fury – half-brother of heavyweight boxing champion Tyson.

However, with Fury withdrawing from the match-up last week due to a broken rib and chest infection, Woodley immediately stepped in.

The wrestling specialist got an “I love Jake,” tattoo after their first in-ring encounter – as per a bet between the opponents – in hope of receiving a rematch, though Paul overlooked Woodley until last week’s news surrounding fury.

Woodley, 39, staggered Paul, 24, in their first fight but failed to capitalise. He will no doubt seek a finish with more conviction this time – especially with Paul promising a $500,000 bonus for Woodley if he secures a knockout – though his fellow American has predicted his own stoppage win.

What is the prize money?

While the official purses for this rematch haven’t been revealed, we know a couple of things.

First of all, each man earned $2million for the first fight, so it is hard to see either receiving less on this occasion.

Furthermore, Paul has promised to pay Woodley a $500,000 bonus if the ex-UFC welterweight can knock him out. Paul also suggested that the sum will come straight from his own purse for this fight.

Who is Tyron Woodley?

Woodley is a former UFC welterweight champion, with a background in wrestling and a powerful right hand. The 39-year-old lost his title to current champion Kamaru Usman in March 2019, a result which marked the start of a four-fight losing run. That streak led Woodley to be cut from the UFC, with his next move in mixed martial arts currently unknown. It did, however, allow the Missouri native the chance to box Paul in August – and this month.

That fight marked Woodley’s professional boxing debut, while Paul is 4-0 with knockout wins over fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, and former MMA champion Ben Askren.

Will Jake Paul still fight Tommy Fury?

Following his withdrawal from his scheduled clash with Paul, Fury had this to say:

“I can’t express how disappointed I am and I really do hope we can get this fight rescheduled in the new year.

“I want this fight to happen more than anything. I’m now regretfully putting my focus on recovery and a further reschedule date.”
