The boxing world was gutted to hear that Tommy Fury had to pull out of his fight with Paul due to medical reasons, but this rematch between Paul and Woodley is still a very entertaining spectacle.
Former UFC fighter Woodley will be wanting to get revenge following his loss to the American YouTuber in the first fight, and there is also no love lost between the two.
Many were very excited for Paul vs Fury, but no doubt this is a good fight to replace it and Paul will be wanting to prove that he has what it takes to pursue a career in the sport.

What was said at the Press Conference?
The two fighters did not hold back at the press conference in the slightest. A lot was said, and here are some of the key bits that emphasise how big a fight this is for both Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley. Here are the main quotes from both of the fighters. All of these quotes have been gathered from 15rounds.com.
“It’s funny how someone considered a pro boxer like Tommy Fury gets sick and doesn’t want to fight. I’ve fought hurt before. You have to go get the job done.
"It’s going to be a bank robbery. We added the $500,000 knockout bonus to his contract for this fight, but I don’t need anything else, I already have everything.
“Just because I’m paying him to beat me, doesn’t mean he can. If anything, it’s to my advantage, because he’s going to come out recklessly and get caught.
“I hurt him multiple times in that first fight, and I didn’t even hit him with my best shot. It was a bad night and I still beat him. He should be embarrassed by that.
“I’m just excited about the opportunity to redeem myself. We found out a lot about each other that night in the ring. We have mutual respect, but there’s still unfinished business.
“In the second half of the fight I started walking him down and backing him up. I had him hurt, but he wasn’t out of it. I maybe could have been more active, but I have to go off of what I see.
“Every time I hit him, he ran. When I got hit, I came right back into his face.
“August 29 was a Christmas gift. On December 18, it’s going to be a bad night for Jake Paul. I just need to go out there and get it done. This is round nine to me.
“I’m not going to bash his goals, but Saturday my goal and my mission is clear, and it’s independent of his. I’m coming to smash him.”
