There wasn't a 'knockout clause' in Jake Paul's fight with Tyron Woodley - but there WAS a 'glove' clause.


Paul defeated Woodley via split decision back in August and the pair will go at it again on December 18.

It's been claimed the YouTube star had a clause inserted in the original contract that prevented him from being knocked out.

USA Today have released a full breakdown of the deal and the only thing Woodley couldn't do was wear Grant gloves.

Woodley wore Everlast gloves for the contest, while Paul rocked his own custom-made Grant mitts.

The gloves are specially designed for fighters who need protection around the wrists at the expense of less padding.

Floyd Mayweather was known for wearing them during his unbeaten career.

A further write-up from USA Today stresses the contract included 'standard language' with few restrictions imposed on former UFC champion Woodley.

Paul released a statement which reads: "When you're at the top, people are going to try to discredit you.

"No matter what you're doing, boxing, football, being the president. I'm squashing the rumours right now."

The 24-year-old then added: "I'm giving Tyron Woodley an extra $500,000 if he can knock me out."

Dillon Danis, who trains with Conor McGregor and fights with Bellator, made the original claims earlier this year.

A moment in the fourth round of their first fight saw Paul on the ropes after a flurry from Woodley.

He failed to finish the job however and Danis tried to claim it was part of a fix.

Danis was in negotiations to fight Paul in April, but he chose to taken on Ben Askren instead.

"Tyron Woodley, from what I heard, had it in the contract that he was not allowed to knock out Jake Paul," he told the MMA Hour.

"I swear on anything, I swear that's why when Jake Paul was against the ropes, Tyron Woodley didn't hit him."

Woodley has now got his wish of a rematch after Paul's highly-anticipated fight with Tommy Fury fell through.

Fury announced on Monday he'd suffered a broken rib in training while also battling a bacterial chest infection.

He shared images of an x-ray indeed proving he's unable to fight.

The 22-year-old is hoping a fight with Paul can be rescheduled for the new year.
