Jake, 24, suffered the nasty injury to his forehead during the third round after rival Woodley accidentally headbutted him in their rematch on Saturday.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer, who now holds an undefeated 5-0 record, appeared to be troubled by the blood going into his eye.
However, the complexion of the lacklustre cruiserweight bout was altered in the sixth round after Paul landed a devastating right hook on Woodley to knock him out.
The Problem Child celebrated with older brother Logan in his corner after his win over Woodley at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.
Logan took to Twitter to share an exchange with Jake after the fight (video posted above), with the YouTube star claiming he is a “doctor” and the cut is “fine.”
Jake was also shocked at the extent of the head injury and admitted that he would require stitches.
Speaking in a video posted on Showtime Boxing’s Twitter page, the American star said: “Okay, Showtime, I told you all it was showtime.
“Oh, f**k, we got to stitch that up. Hey, tough fight, but I got the job done. I’ll see you all in the next one.”
Woodley, who has now suffered back-to-back defeats to Paul, stepped in on short notice to replace Tommy Fury for the headline fight.
Fury, 22, was forced to pull out of the long-awaited super-fight with Paul due to a bacterial chest infection and broken rib.
Speaking after his win over Woodley, Paul insisted that he was unfazed by the head injury and a “little cut” was not going to stop him from claiming the ultimate bragging rights on the night.
“Nothing fazes me. I’ve been through way harder s**t in my life. Way harder s**t,” he said.
“A little cut is not going to stop me from winning, or put me off my game plan.
“I actually kind of liked it. I look like a fighter now. I can take a selfie and say I’m a professional boxer now.”
