Tommy Fury, the half brother of boxing superstar Tyson Fury, is OUT of his scheduled December 18 fight with Jake Paul.
Citing a “medical issue”, Fury has pulled out of the fight. Paul posted a video announcing the situation, of course accusing Fury of just being scared instead of actually being hurt.
In the video he also announces that Paul will still be fighting on December 18 against a different opponent. In fact, the opponent that Paul will be facing on December 18 will be Tyron Woodley again in a rematch.
Woodley, one of the greatest UFC welterweights of all time and a former long-standing champion, faced Paul in his first professional boxing bout back in August of this year in Paul’s hometown of Cleveland. Paul would win that fight via a split decision.
Paul says he is looking to knock out the former champion this time, while Woodley will of course be looking to avenge his close loss from last time.
Here is the video of Jake Paul making the announcement, stating that Fury just “fumbled the biggest bag of his life”:
