Jake Paul was initially slated to fight former Love Island star Tommy Fury but the Briton pulled out of the bout after picking up a bacteria chest infection, leaving Woodley to step up on short notice to replace him.

Woodley lost the first bout against Jake Paul back in August after a split decision but was dropped in the 6th round this time around.

Despite blood dripping down his face after an accidental headbutt by Woodley in the 3rd round, Paul responded well by not allowing Woodley to build any momentum.

Then suddenly in the sixth round, Paul launched a right hand which landed right on Woodley's jaw, dropping him to the canvas.

The referee immediately stopped the clash, with Paul extending his unbeaten professional boxing record to 5-0.

It was a sensational knockout that the Youtuber-turned-boxer celebrated by leaping onto the ropes.

Mike Tyson agrees to become Anthony Joshua’s trainer ahead of his rematch with Usyk

Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that legendary Mike Tyson has reportedly agreed to train Anthony Joshua who is preparing for his rematch against Ukrainian sensation Oleksandr Usyk.

It was gathered that Tyson would see such a move as an honour having stated that AJ has so much potentials, despite losing his belts to Usyk.

It was gathered that Joshua has been preparing for the rematch in the US and his promoter Eddie Hearn recently bumped into “Iron Mike” Tyson as they attended Canelo Alvarez's victory over Caleb Plant in Las Vegas.

Dillian Whyte hits out at Joshua

Meanwhile, Legit.ng also reported that British heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte has knocked Anthony Joshua for his loss to Oleksandr Usyk last September.

AJ lost all his belts to the Ukrainian who outboxed him in front of his home fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

It is understood that the tactics of Joshua's coach Rob McCracken was questioned during the fight against Usyk and the 32-year-old is on the lookout for a new coaching crew in the United States.

However, former Common Wealth champion Whyte has played down the reports that McCracken was to blame for AJ's loss to Usyk.
