After an impromptu cancellation from Tommy Fury following an injury sustained just a week before the big fight, Tyron Woodley stepped in only to be defeated by Jake Paul once more.
An extra bonus for winning by K.O
Unlike their previous match earlier year, in which Paul won by split decision, this time around, the YouTube star knocked his opponent out in the sixth round. The stellar punch that ended the fight has earned the controversial boxer £377,000 as a bonus for having won by knock out.
And although the exact amount of Paul's earnings for his most recent victory has yet to be confirmed, it is believed both boxers will receive the same sum. Their first fight, back in August of this year, was estimated to have earned Paul £3.8 million. In an interview following his victory, Jake Paul said:
This is as real as it gets, just like my right hand. I told you I was going to f**k him up. And I f****d him up. This guy is a legend and respect him for taking the fight on two weeks' notice. It was a tough fight. I had blood in my eyes. I had the job done.
I was setting the punch up the whole fight. He didn't see it coming. Like a lumberjack, timber. It's got to be the moment of my life. Look at my year. Four fights, four knockouts. Masvidal and Nate Diaz—you are b*tch for leaving this arena. I will f*** you up too. Anyone, anytime, anyplace.
Reports have since been coming out saying that the fight was rigged after what appeared to have been a signal that was given from Paul to Woodleyto indicate that the decisive hook was coming. Fans have pointed out that right before Paul landed the winning punch, he made a peculiar hand rotation as a sign to prepare the former UFC fighter.
