Initially, the rumors surfaced online that Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley’s contract has a “No Knockout” clause. Now, according to the latest reports, no evidence of this clause was found in the contract of this upcoming bout.
Tommy Fury was supposed to participate on December 18 in the main event against Jake Paul. However, the former withdrew from this match due to injuries. Tyron Woodley agreed to replace Fury on short notice as he is looking forward to taking revenge against Jake Paul for his loss earlier this year in August.
Jake Paul had a chat with USA Today Sport+ where he stated that Fury was under pressure, and he found a possible way to escape this fight.
Jake Paul also stated that he ordered a $500K knockout bonus in the contract in order to clear the rumors that he insists his opponents add “No Knockout” to the contract.
USA Today Sports+ also reviewed the copy of a 20-page contract and didn’t find any evidence of no knockout clause in it. Only some minimal restrictions were mentioned in the contract that includes the use of standard language and avoidance of Grant boxing gloves.
Now, it is clear that Tyron Woodley will be able to use his heavy punches in order to knock out the Problem Child. On the other hand, Paul must be looking forward to beating the former UFC champion for the second consecutive time.
