Jake Paul and Tyrone Woodley made their fight official for August 28th on Showtime boxing. This will be a huge ticket and will likely sell a ton of pay-per-view buys. Paul also wants to make sure that Woodley can’t win and get away without a rematch.
While talking to MMA Fighting, Malki Kawa, Woodley’s longtime manager spoke about how great of a deal he was able to secure for his client. This is a huge deal and he got paid way more than he ever did in the UFC.
“He definitely got paid in his base guarantee more than he ever did in the UFC, whether as a champion or non-champion, that’s a fact yes,”
That big payday also came with a catch. If Tyrone Woodley is able to defeat Jake Paul then the Problem Child has it written into the contract that he gets an automatic rematch. This makes signing a deal like that incredibly intimidating for anyone. Jake Paul is looking to further establish himself in the boxing world and he wants to do that through Woodley.
“I think Jake Paul realizes himself he needs a good opponent to take that next step,” Kawa said. “If he can beat Tyron, people really got to start paying attention to this guy. I know we’re already paying attention but I’m talking about taking him serious.”
“Jake Paul’s team negotiated an automatic rematch clause. That’s how much this is a scary fight to them. If we win this fight, if Jake Paul wants it, then we have to run it back with him.”
Tyrone Woodley finished up his UFC deal and immediately got to work on this huge fight. We will have to see if Woodley can topple the 3-0 boxer, but if he can then Jake Paul already called dibs on his next fight.
