The fight purse for the first Paul vs Woodley clash was not officially revealed, but it’s believed the former UFC welterweight champ made a payday of £1.5m ($2m).

According to reports, the YouTuber-turned-boxer walked away from the first fight with ‘at least’ a hefty £3.77m ($5m).

The Manchester Evening News reports that both Paul and Woodley ‘expected to earn a similar amount’ to the $5m that the Problem Child pocketed the first time around.

Both of the fighters earned over £1m each for Saturday’s rematch, while Woodley could have received a £377,458 ($500,000) bonus if he had knocked out Paul.

Paul went the full distance for the first time in his initial clash with Woodley in August, with the YouTube star emerging victorious with a split-decision win.

However, the former Disney star was cut in the third round of their rematch after an accidental headbutt from Woodley.

Paul continued to fight on with the head injury and made his huge breakthrough in the sixth after landing a massive right hook to floor Woodley.

“Everyone’s a target. No-one is safe,” Paul said.

“I don’t really know what’s next on the roadmap. I’ve done it all, I’ve accomplished what I wanted to accomplish.

“It’s scary to try and put a cap on where this could go. The potential is unlimited here.

“Maybe when the time is right I’ll go for the world championship belt. It would be funny to become world champion.

“I’d take the belt and throw it on the f*****g ground and stomp on it. You’re a champion in your heart before anyone tells you. I am a champion.”
