YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul beat former UFC champion Woodley by split-decision in the featured bout of their event in Cleveland, Ohio.

The pay-per-view event was a huge success, with 'The Problem Child' claiming it sold 1.3 million buys to generate a whopping $75 million.

So, according to reports, that means Paul pocketed a cool $5 million while Woodley earned a career-high $2 million.

Woodley's manager Malki Kawa confirmed reports that his client was in line for a huge payday.

He said: "The money is good. He's making a seven-figure payday, and it's not like $1m. It's more.

"And we get a piece of everything as well, so we expect him to walk out of here with a substantial payday for his first fight in boxing."

Showtime Boxing chief Stephen Espinoza also claims Paul asked about everyone's purse on the card.

He said: "I'll tell you something behind the scenes and I've never had it happen quite this way.

"When we're putting together the card and we're working with the promoter and his advisor Nakisa [Bidarian, BAVAFA Sports boss], Jake made it a point to ask 'what is each fighter making?'

"He was asking 'are the women's fighters, are those fighters being paid appropriately? Are the other fighters, the people we're bringing over from the UK, are they being paid appropriately?'"

Paul, who now boasts a professional record of 4-0, could return to the ring before the end of the year.

Tommy Fury, who beat Anthony Taylor on the undercard, could be a potential opponent following their backstage bust-up.
