Tyron Woodley's Coach Responds To Claims That Jake Paul KO Was 'Fixed'

Tyron Woodley's coach has responded to sensational claims suggesting his fighter's clash with Jake Paul was rigged and fixed.

​Following the withdrawal of Tommy Fury, Team Paul drafted in Woodley for a rematch after they were involved in a close contest in August. 

'The Problem Child' took no prisoners, landing a devastating overhand right flush on his opponent's chin that knocked him out.

However, the closing sequence aroused the suspicion of some fans and critics who felt it was a fix

But Woodley's coach Din Thmas has rubbished claims the showdown was a work, jokingly saying he'd have taken the night off and partied had the fight been an inside job. 

"That whole theory, it makes me laugh. Because being in his camp, I know how serious it was," he told MMA on Sirius XM. ​​

"It was serious like Tyron really wanted this win back, he really wanted this fight and it was a serious thing."

Thomas added: "Now, if it was a dive, I wish they told me about it because I wouldn't have shown up and taken the night off.

"I'd be like partying but that wasn't the case. I mean it was a real, legit fight."

It's not the first time Paul has been accused of being involved in a fixed fight. 

Though there hasn't been any evidence to suggest his wins have been fixed. 

Paul, meanwhile, went 3-0 in 2021 as he plans his ascent next year, eyeing the likes of Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez. 

But he has his sights set on former world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr next.
