Former Disney Star turned boxer Jake Paul is ready to run it back with former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley this Saturday at the Amalie Arena, Tampa, Florida, after the latter’s split decision loss back in August.
Paul, who was initially training to go up against Tyson Fury’s younger half-brother Tommy Fury, had to find a replacement when Fury’s camp announced that he can’t fight due to a broken rib.

Subsequently, Woodley, who also happened to be training and yearning for a rematch, got his shot. The event is branded as a ‘Leave no Doubt’ fight, and Paul certainly won’t leave a doubt if he manages to beat the former UFC Welterweight Champion the second time in a row.
The Showtime Pay-Per-View is scheduled for Saturday, December 18th, with the main card starting at 9 pm ET. Here is a list of fights taking place before the main event:
- Anthony Taylor vs. Chris Avila
- J’Leon Love vs. Marcus Oliveira
- Deron Williams vs. Frank Gore
- Amanda Serrano vs. Miriam Gutierrez
- Liam Paro vs. Yomar Alamo
- Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley

A loss here for Woodley would allow Paul to boast a 5-0 unbeaten run. However, if Woodley wins, a trilogy matchup could definitely be on the table.
