Tyron Woodley waiting on paperwork before he gets "I love Jake Paul" tattoo

By Harry Davies

Tyron Woodley says he will get the loser tattoo he and Jake Paul agreed on but only if his team sends through paperwork for a second fight.

Paul outpointed the former UFC champion Woodley after eight rounds in Cleveland last month to extend his unbeaten record to 4-0.

The fight was Woodley's first in a boxing ring having parted ways with the UFC earlier this year after losing four straight fights.

Before they stepped foot in the ring, Paul and Woodley had agreed the loser of their fight would get a tattoo of the winner's name on their body.

And in their post-fight interviews, the pair seemingly agreed to a rematch if Woodley would go through with the tattoo bet.

But Woodley revealed on a recent Instagram live that he hasn't heard anything back from Paul about a second fight.

He said: "We called his manager, we called him. I think somebody just got to him, ‘Man, just take it and run, man. You didn’t win the fight, man. They said you won but don’t f****** get back in there with him.'

"Because I’m the type of motherf***** where if you let me get another time to fight you and I get a chance to break you down, it’s problems.

“That tattoo situation, the original bet was the loser gets the tattoo. In the ring, a new bet was presented that, in my opinion, superseded the previous bet. That bet said if you get the tattoo then we can run it back.

"We both said ‘Bet’ and we shook hands. So that’s a bet I’m trying to facilitate and the rematch has to happen. If we get the paperwork, of course."

Should Paul and Woodley have a rematch? Comment below

Paul revealed a "hit list" before his fight with Woodley that included names such as pound-for-pound No.1 Canelo Alvarez and UFC stars such as Kamaru Usman.

He's been linked with a fight against Tommy Fury next, the cousin of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

Fury defeated Paul's sparring partner Anthony Taylor on the undercard of Paul vs Woodley.

And Woodley is adamant that he would defeat Paul in a rematch and even thinks a trilogy could take place between the two.

He continued: "You motherf****** have some dumbass tattoos on your bodies. Hella-dumb. For a nice bag, there’s nobody on this live that would tell me they would never do that.

“It’s all part of the story. This wouldn’t have been a trilogy. I’m gonna f*** him up and then his pride’s gonna kick in and we’re gonna do it again and it’s gonna literally be a whole movie that people talk about for a very long time.”
