Tyron Woodley says he’s ready to fight Jake Paul anytime and anywhere, and wants to teach him a lesson.
In his most recent boxing bout, Paul TKO’d MMA legend Ben Askren in the first round to improve his record to 3-0. Woodley is a long-time friend of ‘Funky’ and was in his corner for his fight with the YouTube sensation last month. ‘The Chosen One’ has since been calling out ‘The Problem Child’ for a boxing bout, but believes the entertainer doesn’t want the smoke.
‘Fight Someone Real’
“Jake Paul is – well I guess we kind of recognise he came from Disney – but we’re expecting him to be like this f***ing macho macho man he’s playing but he’s calling out everybody but me,” Woodley said. “I’m the one with real smoke with you. At the end of the day, that was Ben’s fight and I never want to take away the moment from Ben. That was his opportunity so everybody backstage is trying to get love and trying to get their name – almost the same way Jake took the shine away from Logan. They’re just Culture Vultures. He would vulch the juice from his own damn flesh and blood. His cornerman trying to take the juice from him. His whole crew moves goofy. My dogs don’t move like that.
“I was in the gym today in Miami training, looking around for Jake Paul, I ain’t seen him nowhere. He ain’t asked to fight me one time. He wants to fight Dillon Danis who couldn’t bust a grape in a fruit fight, or Tyson Fury’s cousin [Tommy – Tyson’s half-brother] but he don’t want to fight a real puncher. He wants to walk around and vulch from the culture and suck it dry and walk around and take shots with rappers and think you’re a big shot fighter. Nah, come and get this smoke for real.”
Woodley was released from the UFC last month and is currently a free agent, which sets him up perfectly for a fight with the 24 year old.
“I’m in and I can actually find him,” Woodley said. “People that keep talking about fighting him, they’re not even in position to fight him. I can actually fight him. I can fight him tomorrow if I want to.”
Teaching Jake Paul A Lesson
The former UFC welterweight champion doesn’t have a problem with people transitioning into the world of boxing. He just doesn’t appreciate Paul claiming that he can beat the best in the business, and for that reason, Woodley wants to teach him a lesson.
“I just think that some people need to be taught a lesson,” Woodley said. “At the end of the day, you can’t just sit here and think that real motherf***ers that put their time in this – yeah if you want to get in here and get a couple fights and make some money because you’ve got so many subscribers and you did something dope in another lane, I’m all for that. But when it comes down to you’re gonna parade around and act like you’re a straight, ‘Oh I’m a boxer, everybody’s scared of me, I’m this, I’m that’ and then you’re talking s*** about my dog, now we got to go.”
