Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley II fight purse: how much money are they making?
Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley face off in a boxing rematch in Tampa on Saturday, with former UFC champion Woodley out for revenge over YouTuber Paul.
YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley are set for another bumper payday when they face off in a boxing rematch in Tampa.
Woodley on revenge mission after replacing Fury in Florida
After suffering a split-decision defeat to Paul on his professional boxing debut in Cleveland in August, Woodley is chasing revenge over the 24-year-old on Saturday night, having stepped in at the last minute as a replacement for Tommy Fury.
Paul was originally scheduled to face Fury in Florida this weekend, but the Briton - who is the half-brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury - withdrew earlier this month due to a chest infection and a broken rib.
Paul, the younger brother of fellow internet star and boxer Logan Paul, heads into his rematch with Woodley with an unblemished pro record of four wins and no defeats, albeit this comes with the caveat that he is yet to fight a dedicated boxer.
Prior to his win over Woodley, Paul beat YouTuber AnEsonGib in January 2020, before victories over ex-NBA player Nate Robinson in November 2020 and former mixed martial artist Ben Askren in April this year.
