Tyron Woodley Knocked Out By Jake Paul, But How Much Did He Make?

Youtuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul continued his unbeaten streak against former UFC welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley on Saturday night at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.

Paul knocked out Woodley in the sixth round to move 2-0 against the MMA veteran. Both fighters showed mutual respect and applauded each other’s skills.

Paul called Woodley “a warrior” for replacing Tommy Fury in the showdown on a two-week notice.
Tommy had withdrawn from the fight after developing an infection and suffering a ribs fracture during training camp.

To entice Woodley to step in on short notice, Paul had added a $500,000 knockout incentive to the contract for the ex-UFC champion. However, losing his second boxing bout to the same man who defeated him on debut, means he would not get anything extra.

Nonetheless, Woodley reportedly walked away with at least a $1 million guaranteed purse, excluding the pay-per-view sales.

In their first meeting, Paul pocketed around $5 million in total whereas Woodley got nearly $3 million. Woodley’s was near the $3 million mark. Considering the hype of their match, both boxers are likely to have received a similar payout.

Paul is already on the move to find his next opponent. He did not even shy away from calling out the No. 1 pound-for-pound boxer in the world.
