Woodley had “I love Jake Paul” tattooed on his middle finger but it is unlikely to be enough to secure a rematch with the YouTube star
Jake Paul has claimed Tyron Woodley went through with his tattoo bet because he has already spent his purse from their fight.
Woodley had “I love Jake Paul” inked on his middle finger a month after losing on points to the YouTube star.
He did so in a bid to secure a rematch with the YouTube star after striking a bet following the final bell.
But Paul is in advanced talks with Tommy Fury over a December clash and is unlikely to face Woodley for a second time.
And in response to the tattoo, Paul wrote on social media: “1. Tyron got the wire from the fight 2. Tyron bought a used Bentley 3. Tyron got on a call with his accountant 4. His accountant told him how much he had to pay in taxes 5. Tyron got the tattoo.”
Woodley and Paul initially struck a bet before their fight that would see the loser have a tattoo inked on their body.
But Woodley said he would only go through with the wager if he was granted a rematch.
Paul agreed but recently said he had moved on after Woodley had failed to hold up his end of the bargain.
And he and Fury, who is the brother of heavyweight world champion Tyson, are now holding talks.
Paul made a ‘final’ offer of $1million for an eight-round fight last week which was immediately rejected.
“This is the last time I am speaking about this guy, he is about to fumble the biggest bag of his life,” Paul said on Twitter.
“I made you famous and give you the biggest debut of your life, and gave you a chance to shine in front of the whole world.
“And I have made you an offer which is quadruple the best payday of your career which I gave you to fight me, so for everyone at home this is what happens when you give someone clout.
“I have dozens of other fighters every week Tommy, you are replaceable.”
Fury had claimed that a fight with Paul was worth far more than $1m.
“I just wanted to come on here and address a few things that Jake Paul has been saying that I have denied two offers to fight him,” Fury told fans on Instagram.
“That is true, as those offers weren’t even worth addressing, and now he has come out and said that he wants to give me a $1 million to fight him and i just want to say this.
“To everybody out there, $1 million for a fight of this magnitude is not even worth getting out of bed for, this fight is going to gross millions and millions of pounds.
“I cannot walk down the street without anybody asking me when are you fighting Jake Paul, so until you want to make a serious offer and put it on the table, we can’t think about fighting pal.”
