YouTuber-turned-pro boxer Jake Paul has knocked out former MMA champion, aspiring rapper, and vocal Black Lives Matter supporter Tyron Woodley in a boxing rematch with an overhand right punch.
Paul had won the first fight via split decision, and Woodley had begged for a rematch. When Tommy Fury, the opponent originally selected by Paul for the Dec. 18 bout, dropped out of the fight due to injury, Woodley was signed up for the event instead.
All doubts as to whether the result of the first fight was a fluke were erased after Paul knocked out Woodley in dominant fashion in the sixth round.

As National File previously reported, Woodley was defeated in 2020 by Trump supporter Colby Covington:
Woodley, who wore Black Lives Matter shirts to all pre-fight appearances as well as a hat emblazoned with the slogan “make racists catch the fade again,” chose to reply to all questions from media in pressers leading up to the fight with some variation of “Black Lives Matter.
“I’m just excited that black lives matter,” Woodley said when asked about the fight.
Covington, an avid Trump supporter who frequently wears MAGA paraphernalia and has received shoutouts from the presidential family, thoroughly dominated Woodley through the first four rounds of the fight.
The Black Lives Matter activist frequently caught heavy hands to the face from Covington, and spent a good deal of time on the ground and being pushed back against the cage, before crying out in pain in the fifth round until the referee stepped in to halt the proceedings.
