Reported pay-per-view numbers revealed the fight sold just under the 500,000 mark while the 16,000-seat Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse was sold out.

Paul boasted about how his dedication to boxing has seen him receive at least $10MILLION for each of his fights.

He told the Daily Mail: “It’s eight-figure paydays. The money is great, the business is great, it is.

“I work blood, sweat, and tears in the gym, but this is a product of working day in and day out since I was 17 years old.”

Paul first began boxing in 2018, winning an exhibition in Manchester against British YouTuber ‘Deji’.

The same night, his brother Logan drew against Deji’s brother, KSI – real name Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji.

Logan, 26, then turned professional a year later losing to KSI, 28, in their Los Angeles rematch by split-decision.

A year later, Paul, 24, followed suit and beat online rival ‘AnEsonGib’, a friend of KSI’s, on his pro debut.

He went on to then knock out ex-NBA star Nate Robinson and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, both 37, before his win against Woodley, 39.

Paul he been training throughout the three years non-stop and has become a polarising figure among boxing and MMA fans.

His years as a controversial content creator whose pranks found himself in trouble with the law appear to now be over thanks to his venture into boxing.

Paul explained: “The internet is a ruthless place where you’re never really held accountable for your actions.

“This sport can save my life and I’m sure it can save others.”
