During an interview with TMZ two weeks ago, Woodley called Paul a “culture vulture” and said he was willing to knock his “fucking head off” in a boxing match.
Jake Paul is – well I guess we kind of recognize he came from Disney, we expect him to be this little f***ing Macho Macho Man that he’s playing,” Woodley told TMZ. “But he keeps calling out everybody but me. I’m the one with the real smoke with you.
“They just culture vultures. Like, he’ll ‘vult’ the juice from his own damn flesh and blood.”
“Come and get this smoke for real,” Woodley said. “I’m in and I can actually find him. People that keep talking about fighting him, they’re not even in position to fight him. I can actually fight him. I can fight him tomorrow if I want to.
“If Jake dropped his ball sack out his stomach and sign the deal, then I think Floyd would be happy that I’d be the one to knock his f***ing head off.”
Woodley and Paul will face off this Friday in Miami to promote the upcoming event.
