Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 Will Not Have VADA Drug Testing

Jake Paul, Tyron Woodley

Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 on December 18 will reportedly not have VADA drug testing.

BoxingScene.com reports that any previous request for the involvement of VADA is no longer in play for the December 18 Showtime pay-per-view event at AMALIE Arena in Tampa, Florida.

“VADA is not involved in any testing leading up to or for the December 18th Showtime PPV event,” Dr. Margaret Goodman, the International Boxing Hall-of-Fame-elected physician and founder and chairperson of VADA told BoxingScene.com.

Not having VADA drug testing for the rematch will certainly raise eyebrows as Tommy Fury’s team claimed Paul turned down drug testing. Woodley, ahead of the first fight, also said drug testing was not happening for this fight.

“No we didn’t f***ing get tested,” Woodley said to MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani on the Monday after the fight. “Why the f*** would it matter if the results come back on Tuesday? We already fought on Sunday. If it said I wasn’t deemed fit to fight… I already fought.”

Although Woodley and Fury have both claimed Paul declines drug testing, the YouTube-turned-boxer says that is not true. Instead, he says the Florida State Athletic Commission already took drug samples from him and Fury before the Englishman was forced out of the fight.

“The smart ones that did look into the rumor about drug testing saw that there is drug testing for this fight. The Florida State Athletic Commission is drug testing me and Tommy multiple times. There was never a denial on my end of doing any sort of drug test,” Paul said on a media call on Monday.

Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 goes down on Saturday, December from the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. The fight will air live on Showtime pay-per-view.
