In a surprising turn of events, Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley 2 is set for December 18 with Tommy Fury out due to injury. This unexpected rematch will replace the Paul vs Fury bout as the main event for the PPV.
On Monday, Tommy Fury’s promoted posted a tweet to make the announcement. Fury mentioned in the tweet that “I am absolutely heartbroken that I have been forced to withdraw from my fight with Jake Paul due to a bacterial chest infection and a broken rib.”
Fury also mentioned that he will connect with Jake Paul’s team to see if they can reschedule the bout in 2022. Hopefully, for the new year. As of now, Paul will battle Woodley instead, whom he has defeated once with the split decision in August.
In his response, Paul told ESPN that “The show must go on.” He also said that he has the responsibility to the fans who bought the tickets and the fighters on the undercard, and he’s more than ready to take on Woodley one more time.

He had also challenged Fury to change his name to “Tommy Fumbles” for one year if he loses to him, and if Fury is able to defeat him, he’d get an additional prize of $500k.
Since Tyson Fury says if Tommy loses to me he will make him change his last name..
So then @tommytntfury if you beat me I will pay you an extra $500k.
However, if I beat you then you have to change your name to Tommy Fumbles for 1 year.
