Jake Paul is laughing all the way to the bank after knocking out Tyron Woodley.
The YouTuber floored the UFC veteran in the sixth round on Saturday night.
After the victory, 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.”
Fans think that a recent Michael B Jordan interview about a choreographed punch in the movie Creed proves how Paul and Woodley fixed the fight.
The actor said:
“In the Rocky films it’s like a badge of honour to take a real punch.
“And when you do slow-mo shots you can’t fake it because if you did a slow-mo shot and it was a miss, you would see the space and that it wouldn’t connect.
“So you have to take a real punch. Sly gets up and says, ‘Michael, listen, you gotta take a real punch.’”
“I got hit, went down and the camera panned in. The first time we did it, Tony’s glove was in the way so we didn’t see it – so we had to do it again.
“So we did it the second time, I got hit and I could feel the energy of the studio. I was like, ‘It must have really looked good because everybody is quiet.’
“I was definitely seeing stars, I was not all there, smelling the canvas and everything. It smelled like Pine-Sol.
“But yeah, I took a real punch, it felt like I was in a car accident for like four days afterwards. Tony said he only went 40 per cent.”
But it’s no wonder Paul is calling out people for his next fight, because he’s making so much money.
The 24-year-old banked $5 million for his latest fight, according to the MEN.
