JAKE PAUL has taunted Tyron Woodley over his pursuit of a rematch, insisting the former UFC champion ‘had his chance’ to bag a second fight.

The Problem Child agreed to rematch Woodley after his narrow victory in their August showdown, but only the condition he got ‘I love Jake Paul’ tattooed on him.

Woodley fulfilled his end of the bargain, but that didn’t stop Paul from pursuing a grudge match with Love Islander Tommy Fury.

And former Disney star Paul now has no desire to share the ring with the ex-UFC welterweight king again.

He told TMZ: “By the time he’d got the tattoo, we’d already moved on to fighting Tommy Fury and making that fight negotiation.

“I don’t think people really wanna see Tyron vs Jake Paul again.

“He had his chance. He had his chance.”

Paul, 24, is currently gearing up for a December 18 showdown with Fury, the brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson.

The younger Paul brother will be the biggest name fellow novice Fury has faced in his young career, which the social media star believes will come crashing down in their Tampa tussle.

The American said: “He’s only been put in there with opponents that were meant to lose.

“This is his first real test where his opponent isn’t some guy who is just going to flop over.

“He has no idea what he’s getting himself into.

‘”This is his first time under the big lights, on the big stage, and he’s going to crack under pressure.”

Paul does, however, admit TNT will be the most accomplished boxer he’s faced so far.

He said: “The beautiful thing about this fight is the unknown. Is he actually a Fury, or will we find out that he’s just a half Fury?

“Does he have the heart like his brother, or is he just living in the shadow of his brother.

“The beautiful thing about this fight is stepping into the unknown, because this is also my first time fighting a real boxer, whatever that means?

“He’s undefeated, he’s young, same age, same weight, same height, so it’s really a perfect match-up.

“We’re just going to see who worked harder, who wants it more and who has that dog inside of them.”
