Jake Paul inserts contract clause in Woodley fight to prove it ‘won’t be fixed’

Jake Paul added a $500,000 (£378K) "knockout bonus" clause to the contract for his upcoming fight with Tyron Woodley to dispel accusations the last fight was fixed, it has been reported.

Paul and Fury were set to go one-on-one on December 18, but the Englishman withdrew from the fight on Monday after breaking a rib during training and citing an illness.

Woodley has now replaced Fury on the card, setting up an intriguing rematch after the former MMA fighter lost to Paul via split decision in August.

In an attempt to dispel rumours that a "no-knockout" clause was added their last fight, Paul has promised to pay Woodley half a million dollars if he gets left on the canvass, it is reported in the US.

USA Today recently reviewed a copy of the 20-page bout agreement for their first fight and found no evidence of a no-knockout clause in the previous fight.

In a video on Twitter, Paul said: "Mr Tyron Woodley, we called him up and we were like 'hey do you wanna take the fight?'

"He has been training, he goes 'sure, I'll take the fight, let's do the rematch!'

"I'm giving him $500,000 extra if he can knock me out."

The 24-year-old slammed Fury for pulling out of the bout due to injury telling him to "get the f*** over it."

"I've fought with a broken nose, I've fought sick … it's official, he was scared. The pressure got to him," said Paul.

"He fumbled the biggest bag of his life, now he will be watching [the fight] at home paying me $60 instead of getting paid millions of dollars to fight me."
