Tyron Woodley eyeing next boxing match after giving up on Jake Paul rematch

Tyron Woodley looks set to return to the boxing ring after finally giving up on a rematch against previous rival Jake Paul.

Woodley took on Paul back in August of this year in Cleveland, Ohio in his first ever professional boxing fight, however it was the YouTuber-turned-boxer who came out on top, as Paul secured victory on points over the former UFC star.

Following his defeat it seemed Woodley was more than keen to get a second chance against the American internet sensation, however a rematch never materialised with Paul instead opting to take on Tommy Fury in his next bout.

As a result the mixed martial artist was then forced to look elsewhere, and it seems he will now finally make his return to take on fellow ex-UFC star Dan Hardy.

The former UFC welterweight challenger is said to be the next man facing off with Woodley, having spent the last few months exchanging blows and trash talk over social media, as Hardy mocked the 39-year-old's performance against Paul.

As a result Hardy has since revealed that he and Woodley had reached an agreement for a meet in the boxing ring, and the only thing stalling confirmation was his rival’s hesitation to sight it.

Will Woodley take on Hardy? Let us know in the comments section below.

The Englishman said: “My contract is signed and I know that he’s got a contract sitting in front of him, and the deadline is approaching, and he doesn’t want to sign it, and I don’t know why.”

Hardy went on to criticise the reluctance of Woodley, mocking his nickname ‘The Chosen One’ by labelling him ‘The Frozen One’.

“I don’t know what the deal is because terms have been agreed,” added The Outlaw.

“Money’s been agreed, date’s been agreed, rules and conditions, weight class—everything’s been agreed.

“But he hasn’t yet signed the contract. So you tell me. Tyron Woodley, why have you not signed it, The Frozen One?”

Hardy had previously worked as a pundit and commentator covering UFC for the event’s british TV partner BT Sport, but was reportedly sacked earlier this year.

Additionally, Woodley had also let his UFC contract expire in order to fight Paul earlier this summer, meaning both parties seem more than free for the potential bout.
