Tommy Fury vs Tyron Woodley Could Land In the Middle East On Mayweather Card
Per Reports, former P4P king and 50-0 retired boxer Floyd Mayweather will face YouTuber Deji, KSI’s brother, on November 13 at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai, UAE.
The exhibition bout is likely to be announced after Mayweather’s showcase with Mikuru Asakura in Tokyo on Sep 25.
Sources tell NoSmokeBoxing that Britain’s reality TV star and unbeaten light heavyweight Tommy Fury (8-0, 4 KOs) could face 4x UFC champion Tyron Woodley (0-2) on the undercard of Mayweather vs Deji.
It is understood that Fury and Woodley are in advanced negotiations and closing in on a deal to face each other in a catchweight contest understood to be around 185-pounds.
Woodley’s only two boxing matches are his back-to-back defeats to Jake Paul in 2021. After a competitive SD loss in August, Woodley suffered the wrong end of a Knockout of the year contender in December 2021 and has not boxed since. As NSB first reported, Paul faces Anderson Silva on Oct 29.
The UFC star came in on late notice in the Dec ’21 rematch after the Mancunian light heavyweight pulled out with a rib injury. Fury was supposed to fight Paul again on Aug 6 this year but Fury was denied entry into the United States; NoSmokeBoxing was first on the story.
