YouTube star Jake Paul knocks out ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley

Jake Paul called his sixth-round knockout of Tyron Woodley “the moment of my life” after he extended his perfect record to five wins.

The YouTube star, 24, beat the ex-UFC champion for the second time in four months, after a points win in August.

Paul had been set to fight Tommy Fury but the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson pulled out earlier this month with a rib injury and illness.

There were boos from the crowd during an uneventful opening five rounds.

“This guy is a legend and respect to him for taking the fight with two weeks’ notice,” said Paul after knocking out 39-year-old Woodley in Tampa, Florida.

“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.”

Paul also called out Fury for withdrawing from their match.
