The viewing public clearly did not care enough to see Jake Paul fight Tyron Woodley again.
According to a recent report, Jake Paul’s rematch with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley didn’t sell nearly as many pay-per-views as anticipated. According to DAZN’s Steven Muehlhausen, Paul vs. Woodley 2 sold less than 65,000 PPV buys on terrestrial TV. The reporter also said that “streaming numbers are unknown.”
Jorge Masvidal couldn’t wait to speak about this as he tweeted: “Bitch boy can’t afford the big boys. Never again do I want to hear my name associated with the fake. 3 0 5 day is coming #supernecessary.”
After “The Problem Child” knocked out Woodley in the sixth round of their Showtime boxing bout, he called out Masvidal and Nate Diaz for a fight.
“Y’all are some bithces for leaving this arena,” Paul said. “I know you don’t want that shit. I’ll take out both of y’all next. Get out of your contracts with daddy Dana. I’mma fuck them up too.”
Paul has become one of the biggest names in boxing, which came by way of his popularity as a YouTuber before stepping inside the ring. However, if these reports are true, you won’t see Paul speaking on these numbers at all, especially after he claimed the first meeting with Woodley did 1.5 million buys.
We later found out that it was closer to 500,000.
