Jake Paul explains the loophole Tyron Woodley has found with his tattoo and won’t commit to rematch, says he wants to become a boxing world champion
Tyron Woodley finally got the Jake Paul tattoo, to the disbelief of just about everyone.
Does that mean the former UFC champion is going to get his rematch with Paul?
Speaking to talkSPORT on the launch of his promotional company MVP, Paul was non-committal on facing Woodley again, but does have a theory behind his tattoo.
“Let’s see what happens. He was like three or four weeks late on the tattoo, he let the hype die down,” the 24-year-old explained.
“I think he had a call with his accountants and he saw how much taxes he had to pay and he was like ‘oh, man, I need to get this tattoo right now.’
“The weird thing about it, and I’m saying this on record right now, is the tattoo is on his middle finger and it’s done in a way where he can change it to say ‘f*** Jake Paul’.
“He did it so the I looks like an F or could be changed to that, so I think personally he’s going to change it to say f*** Jake Paul on his middle finger.
“It goes perfectly with that, so I’m calling it out right now. He’s trying to find loopholes and be slick but he’s not as smart as he thinks he is,” Paul said.
Paul suggested he would take a break from boxing following his fight with Woodley and he told talkSPORT he’s probably going on holiday with his girlfriend shortly, but he’s certainly not done in boxing.
Of his goals in boxing, Paul said: “I think making history and leaving an everlasting impact on the sport where people will talk about ‘OK, in 2020, when Jake Paul came into the sport, it was changed forever.’
“To me, that’s what really drives me. But second to that, it’s just winning and continuing to beat people.
“I have people on my list I want to take out and then there’s part of me that’s like yo, since I’m doing this so much, I’m good at it, I’m only getting better, why not become a world champion?
“I think the perfect story would be this kid came into the sport, went 10-0, became a world champion and then dipped.”
