Paul beat Woodley via split decision in an eight-rounder back in August, and the two are rematching after Tommy Fury pulled out of the scheduled bout with the 'Problem Child' due to a bacterial chest infection and broken rib.
Woodley had already been training hard in the gym following on from his professional boxing debut and gladly accepted the rematch, which includes a $500,000 knockout clause in his contract.
Happy to still have a main event fight in Tampa Bay, Florida this weekend, Paul surprised the former UFC welterweight champion by giving him a new-generation luxury watch.
Paul handed over the Christmas present to his rival during a face-to-face with Ariel Helwani for Showtime.

"I got a gift for you for taking the fight on late notice, Merry Christmas," Paul said.
"You have to open this now. It's a good gift. I actually got this for you."
Woodley, having trash-talked and verbally jousted with Paul in the past, couldn't believe the gesture from his opponent.
"This n**** crazy, I swear I'm taking this on god. He's nuts," Woodley commented.
The two shared a handshake, before Paul then said he bought the gift "because it's time for me to knock him out".
But Woodley was more than happy to accept the present, later adding: "Why wouldn't I accept it? He put a bow on it, he wrapped it. I ain't gonna be disrespectful.
"I ain't never had an opponent do a lot of stuff this dude do. But mentally it's warfare, because you never know what to expect out of him."
Earlier this week, Paul also bought a Rolex for his coach BJ Flores.
But his biggest purchase was a $500,000 "Most Valuable Boxer" belt that contains a Rolex watch and a diamond cartier.

It’s hand painted by one of the greatest artists of our generation and features a Hermes Birkin bag sewed into the side as well as a diamond Cartier and Rolex watch. 2 days. pic.twitter.com/tBNkJjWViC— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) December 16, 2021
