Since moving to Boxing after an eight-year UFC spell that saw him win the Welterweight Championship, Woodley has entered twice, losing both bouts to Jake Paul.

The 40-year-old first fought Paul for eight rounds in August 2021, and was a late replacement for an injured Fury four months later, losing to the 25-year-old via knockout.

Woodley weighed in at 190lbs for both of his defeats to Paul, while the undefeated Fury came in at 176lbs for his win over Daniel Bocianski for his last fight in April.

The former Love Island contestant, who has so far racked up eight wins in eight fights in his career, was expected to face Jake Paul after twice withdrawing from matches with the social media star turned boxer.

Fury first had to postpone a meeting with Paul due to a rib injury before a rescheduled fight was cut short in August due to a problem with his US visa.

The game against Woodley is set for the undercard for Mayweather’s latest comeback at the exhibition, against Deji – KSI’s brother.

A former YouTuber and gamer like his brother, Deji took his first in-ring win in August, beating online rival Fousey.

If the fight with 47-year-old Mayweather is confirmed, it will mark the former multiple world champion’s fifth exhibition fight since he retired in 2017.

He has already beaten kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, in a comedic round win in 2018, and then eight rounds away with Logan Paul, before battling former sparring partner Don Moore.

Mayweather will face MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura on September 25 for the potential showdown with Deji in Dubai.
