The fight ended after Paul threw a hard right, sending Woodley face-first onto the mat.

Paul was originally supposed to fight Tommy Fury, the half-brother of British boxing champion Tyson Fury but he pulled out of the fight less than two weeks before the event due to a bacterial chest infection and a broken rib.

Jake Paul beat Woodley via split decision in August, even though he hasn’t fought anyone with actual boxing experience. Woodley, 39, had been pushing for a rematch ever since August and it finally went his way.

Woodley was looking strong in the first few rounds, he elbow to Paul’s forehead that sent blood pouring down his face early in the round. Woodley delivered strong hooks to Paul’s head later in the round and seems like he had the other hand in the round.
