Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury in doubt despite YouTube star beating Tyron Woodley

Jake Paul remains undefeated since stepping into boxing after he earned a split decision victory over Tyron Woodley on Sunday evening.

But has been quick to play down talk he will fight Tommy Fury next time out.

The YouTube-star-turned-fighter was coming up against his toughest opponent yet, facing UFC great Woodley in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.

And many expected Paul to be outclassed for the first time in his short fighting career.

But the judges gave him the victory, leaving Woodley fuming at the decision.

And the MMA fighter soon called for a rematch against Paul, claiming he “wobbled” the 24-year-old and almost beat him before the end of the bout.

“You’re the one that got wobbled,” Woodley told Paul in the ring afterwards.

“If these ropes weren’t so big you would have fallen through them.

“If this was the second biggest pay-per-view of the year, then the rematch will be the biggest.”

Paul was expected to confirm his fight with Fury next time out after his win, with Tyson’s little brother winning on the undercard earlier in the night.

But the former Disney Channel star refused to confirm if he will fight the Brit next.

Paul reacted to the win: “I don’t know what to say, he’s a tough opponent, he’s been fighting for 20 years, I’ve been doing it for three, this one’s for Cleveland.

“It was a tougher fight than expected. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. All respect to Tyron. He’s a hall of famer, he’s a good fighter.

“There was a lot of s*** talk, there’s no hard feelings. I want to cry, but I’m a little tired. To win when all the pressure is on, he’s a tough opponent.”

“I’m not sure [if Tommy Fury is next]. I haven’t stopped, I need to figure who I am. I’m keeping my head on straight, I’ll get back in the gym when ready. Let’s see.”

The judges scored the bout 77-75, 75-77, 78-74, with two in favour of Paul.
