Fans claims Jake Paul fight against Tyron Woodley was FIXED with questions over judges' scorecards and tactics
JAKE PAUL'S fight against Tyron Woodley was FIXED, fans are claiming.
Many of those who watched it were angry with the way the YouTuber's victory played out.
Paul, 24, won his fourth professional boxing fight in the early hours of Monday morning after a split decision.
The judges scored it 77-75, 79-74, 75-77 in Paul's favour.
After a cagey opening three rounds, the contest burst into life in the fourth as Woodley finally went on the offensive.
But things settled back down again towards the end of the eight rounds and the judges gave it to the online personality.
Paul was rocked and hurt for the first time in his 'boxing career' in the fourth round. With a minute to go, Woodley, 39, stepped in and went swinging.
Woodley, the shorter of the two men, crashed a huge right hook into Paul's head.

The YouTuber was stunned and fell back into the ropes, struggling to keep himself upright.
But thankfully for him, Woodley decided to wave his arm around to get the crowd going – rather than going in for the killer blow.
That allowed Paul to catch his breath and recover to see out the remaining 40 seconds of the round.
And this seemed to be the main reason fans thought Woodley had been told NOT to knock Paul out, with The Mail publishing several angry tweets.
Rae Marie wrote: "No one can tell me this isn't fixed. Woodley is barely throwing, he could throw and end this at any time."
Luke added: "Got the feeling Woodley was told not to knock him out. This game is fixed. Fingers crossed for the [Tommy] Fury fight as that's a different ball game completely."
Ricardo tweeted: "This is such a frustrating fight. Woodley walking him down then just standing in front of him not throwing a punch. This has gotta be fixed."
And Hentai chipped in with: "Jake got decked so badly in round four that he was never the same.
"Here he is 30 minutes after the punch, still in pain and red all over his face. Woodley proceeded to walk him around the ring like a long walk on the beach.
"This seemed pretty fixed."
