TYRON WOODLEY is refusing to let his knockout loss to Jake Paul keep him down – and could return to boxing in his next fight.

Woodley in August faced Paul over eight rounds, losing by split-decision.

But he got a shot at redemption with a late-notice rematch after Tommy Fury, 22, pulled out of fighting YouTube star Paul, 24, through injury.

Unfortunately for Woodley, it resulted in a brutal KO defeat and left him as the brunt of harsh online trolling.

But boxing coach Gerald Tucker, who cornered both the fights with Paul, insisted the ex-UFC champion has dealt with and overcome far worse.

Tucker told SunSport: “He’s from Ferguson, Missouri, it’s a tough spot, urban and equivalent to where I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. 

“We have something in us from birth which won’t let us stay down for too long or worry about something negative that happened in our past.” 

Woodley, 39, left the UFC following four consecutive losses and pursued boxing as a new venture.

Having headlined back-to-back pay-per-views with Paul, his options are as wide as ever, in both the ring or cage.

But talented trainer Tucker – who also coaches Floyd Mayweather and Adrien Broner – believes Woodley will make his return under boxing rules.

He said: “He’s not done with boxing for sure. Me and Tyron talking about everything.

“I don’t think a day goes by without me and Tyron talking. I think he’s going to try go in there late Spring.”
