Jake Paul confirms Tommy Fury fight is cancelled - Woodley announced as replacement
He has accused Fury of 'fumbling' the fight
Jake Paul has officially confirmed that his fight with Tyson Fury has been cancelled, with Tyron Woodley announced as his replacement.
Paul labelled Tommy Fury as "Tommy Fumbles" and said that he was up for fighting "anyone" when he heard Fury couldn't fight.
He added that Woodley will be receiving an extra $500,000 if he knocks him out.
Paul wrote in the post: "When my team woke me up on Friday to tell me Tommy Fumbles was pulling out, I told them I’ll fight anyone on December 18th.
"Troy, Trey, Trevor, Travis… I don’t give a f*ck who it is. Tommy’s pulling out because of a 'medical condition' called vaginitis.
"Unlike the Fury’s, Tyron actually has some balls, is stepping in, and contractually he is getting an extra $500,000 if he knocks me out.
"First time I outboxed him. This time I’m gonna punish him and leave no doubt."
Paul also released a video confirming the news on Twitter.
