Jake Paul has earned staggering fight purse for Tyron Woodley KO

Jake Paul has received a huge sum following his victory over Tyron Woodley.

But both earned over £1million each from their rematch, while the deal also had with it a $500,000 (£377,458) bonus if Woodley could knock out Paul.

The purses for Fury's first clash with Woodley were not officially announced but it's thought the former MMA star earned $2million (£1.5million), which would be the biggest purse of his career.

That meant Paul banked at least $5million (£3.77million), and both men are estimated to have earned at least that this time round, reports MEN.

Paul, whose record now stands at 5-0, landed what was the only big punch of the night, a massive overhand in the sixth round to brutally knock out his opponent.

During the contest, a clash of heads saw the 24-year-old sustain a gash on his forehead.

After the fight, Logan showed social media the extent of the cut filming on his mobile, saying that the Problem Child was “fine".

After a tepid first round, Jake landed a decent combination in the second. But in the subsequent round, he got rocked by the accidental headbutt, and his trainer, BJ Flores, had to calm his fighter down.

At one point Woodley, a former welterweight UFC fighter, hoist his opponent off the ground and sent him crashing into the canvas. For that, he was given a warning.

Round five offered little action, but in the sixth Jake dealt the killer blow.

He said the victory was the “greatest moment of my life”, before calling out Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz in the immediate aftermath.

Who do you think will Jake Paul fight next? Let us know in the comments section below.

“This is as real as it gets, just like my right hand. I told you, I was going to f*** him up. And I f**** him up.

“This guy is a legend and respect him for taking the fight on two weeks' notice. Tommy Fury is a b**** for pulling out of the fight.

“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***** for leaving this arena. I will f*** you up too. Anyone, anytime, anyplace.”
