Boxing – Jake Paul denies reports that his match against Tyron Woodley did not exceed 65,000 pay-per-view sales.
Jake Paul was scheduled to face Tommy Fury on December 18. A major promotional campaign was carried out for the occasion. However, as the hype began to rise, the Briton withdrew a fortnight before the shock. He was eventually replaced by Tyron Woodley.
On paper, this rematch against Woodley was less exciting than a match against Fury. Indeed, their first meeting had not been the liveliest. In addition, the former UFC champion has a series of defeats.
Paul finally won this new clash by KO, after five very dull rounds.
According to initial reports, the match would not have exceeded 65,000 pay-per-view sales. If these numbers were to be confirmed, it would be a dismal failure for Paul. However, the youtubeur denied this information on Twitter.
“The rumors about the PPV numbers are c * nneries. The first game against Woodley was over 500,000. The numbers for this one are still coming in, but they still look positive. It’s not my best business night, but remember… Everyone wanted to see me against Fury. Fury, that’s what we sold… Hats off to Showtime for supporting me and all the athletes on the map, and Tyron who isn’t a bitch like most of those fighters. “
Shoutout to Showtime for riding with me and all the fighters on the card and Tyron for not being a bitch like most of these “fighters” are ..
