YouTube star Jake Paul outpointed UFC champion Tyron Woodley to remain unbeaten and move to 4-0 as a professional boxer.

The favourite going into the fight, Paul was the busier boxer, according to the stats, and managed to convince two of the judges - whose scorecards have now been revealed.

Paul did have to weather a storm in the fourth round when he was stunned by a looping right hand by Woodley.

But in truth, Woodley failed to capitalise and his cautious approach cost him a genuine chance of winning the fight.

Woodley then demanded a rematch once the official decision had been read, with Paul offering him terms centred around a tattoo to roll it back for a second fight.

Here’s all the latest updates and reaction following the big fight and what comes next.

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley fight purses: How much will boxers earn after split decision in PPV fight?

16:30 , Jamie Braidwood

Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley are set to earn career-high paydays after their eight-round fight in Cleveland.

The YouTube star edged the contest, receiving the nod from the judges via split decision.

The fight purses have not been officially released yet, but both men will earn in the millions.

That's because Paul was guaranteed at least £500,000 ($690,000) for his last fight against Ben Askren, meaning he is likely to top that up as an initial fee, before throwing in his cut of the pay-per-view buys.

Jake Paul confirms tattoo bet with Tyron Woodley to secure rematch

15:17 , Jamie Braidwood

Jake Paul has offered Tyron Woodley a rematch if he gets a tattoo that says: “I love Jake Paul”.

The former UFC champion dropped a split decision against the YouTube star in Cleveland and immediately demanded a rematch.

After landing the most effective punch of the fight, to send Paul sprawling, Woodley failed to capitalise, instead remaining hesitant as his opponent cautiously circled him while swaying the judges.

And Woodley remonstrated with Paul after the decision was announced: “You are the one that got wobbled, almost sent through the ropes.

“If these ropes weren’t 7ft 2in, you’d have gone through the ropes. I landed the power punches.”

To which Paul replied: “You had your opportunity, you had your chance.

“I was nothing but respectful to you now. If you get the tattoo, ‘I love Jake Paul’, let’s run it back.”

Woodley was quick to accept the terms, snapping back and shaking Paul’s hand: “Bet, let’s go!”

Jake Paul’s boxing circus continues to divide and conquer with victory over Tyron Woodley

12:40 , Jamie Braidwood

With a private bet about a tattoo, a bad round and a good fight in the end, the carnival of boxing mayhem finished its business in Cleveland late on Sunday night to leave Jake Paul riding out of the city on a big white horse.

Jake Paul is the irritating, infuriating and breath of fresh air that is dividing the boxing business with his antics outside the ropes, his ability to market the Jake Paul Experience and his refusal to acknowledge any of boxing’s historical steps. He is both the apocalypse and the future, a clown and a prospect, a conman and a genuine danger.

Steve Bunce assesses Paul’s latest victory, as well as wins for Daniel Dubois and Tommy Fury.

Paul’s next fight can’t be easy, warns top advisor

11:40 , Jamie Braidwood

Jake Paul can no longer go after “easy fights”, according to his advisor Nakisa Bidarian, as the boxer plots his next opponent following his victory over Tyron Woodley.

“[The next opponent should be] someone who has the ability to make people believe that they can beat Jake Paul," Bidarian told ESPN after Paul’s latest victory.

"He's at a level now where he can't have easy fights. Every fight has to elevate given the type of attention he commands, given the pay-per-view box-office power he has and the relationship that he has with Showtime.

“We love, love, love fighting MMA opponents. Not because they're easy, because they're not. Tonight showed that. But it engages two different segments of the population."

Jake Paul out-jabbed Tyron Woodley in all but two rounds while landing his power punches at a better connection percentage in his split-decision win.

The former UFC champion was edged out on the cards in Cleveland and has already been given an ultimatum by Paul for an immediate rematch.

But a look at the punch stats reveals the key to the fight, with the YouTube star’s jab fundamental to persuading the judges combined with his more efficient power shots.

Compubox confirmed that Paul landed 19 more punches in total, while outlanding Woodley at a better percentage - 34.3 per cent to 31.9 per cent. Included in that were 22 body punches, 16 more than Woodley, who was often seen out of range with his conservative approach.

05:28 , Jack Rathborn

“I wasn't very happy with my performance, I felt wary. I don't know what it was. I got the job done against a five-time UFC champion. It is what it is, I'm known as the KO guy, I didn't live up to that. We'll run it back, with Tyron if he gets the tattoo.

“I've been boxing for three years and four days. I went in there, I didn't fight at my best. That's my first time going more than two rounds. I'm not too happy with my performance, it's only my fourth fight, nobody has done this on this stage. It's unprecedented. He caught me with a good shot, one shot out of eight rounds, cool. I took the shot, this isn't soccer, it's fighting, I've got a chin.

“We'll see what happens, I've been doing this for 18 months straight, I'm tired. My legs were tired. It is what it is, I'll go back to the drawing board and figure it out. I was built for this but people seem to forget it is my fourth fight. I'm doing things nobody has done before.”

05:26 , Michael Jones

Jake Paul gave Tyron Woodley a bit of respect in the post fight interview. He said: “Look, I don’t know what to say. But he’s a tough opponent, he’s been boxing, striking whatever you call it for 20 years. I’ve been doing this for three years.”

Then Woodley took the microphone and immediately demanded a rematch. He seemed genuinely angry that Paul was awarded the win.

05:11 , Michael Jones

Round Eight

Woodley starts with two wild punches and connects with a right hand but he backs off and lets Paul move around the ring. Woodley’s only option is for a knockout but he’s not going for it.

Paul has used the grapple to good effect. Whenever Woodley got too close he’s grabbing and holding on not allowing the punches to come in.

Woodley lands another straight right at the end of the round and both fighters raise their arms as the bell goes. This will be a close call but I think Jake Paul edges it and takes the win.

05:06 , Michael Jones

Round Seven

Jake Paul’s corner has him up in the fight which means Woodley needs to finish strongly but it’s Paul who’s controlling the round. He’s hiding behind his jab, staying on the outside and not letting Woodley in close.

Paul gets a good right hand to land on the bell and probably takes the round. This is his fight to lose now with just one round left.

05:02 , Michael Jones

Round Six

Jake Paul’s moving a lot better now. The crowd starts to boo as it’s a quiet round so Paul throws a three-punch combo to get them back into it but doesn’t connect well with any of them.

They come to blows at the end of the round before Paul grabs hold of Woodley. Paul’s starting to look tired now. Woodley finishes the round with a decent right hook.

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley

04:58 , Michael Jones

Round Five

Uppercut then left hook from Woodley. He’s getting inside more often now. Paul looks like he’s feeling the effects of those hits. Woodley’s turning the fight around.

Woodley taunts Paul who responds in kind before landing a few jabs. This is a close round but Woodley might just have edged it.

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley

04:55 , Michael Jones

Round Four

Woodley’s looking for one big shot to end Paul but the 24-year-old isn’t letting him get close.

Until now! Woodley catches Paul with a left hook and he’s rocked. He falls into the ropes and tries to find some distance from Woodley who follows it up with a straight jab and a combo.

Paul makes it to the end of the round but looks leggy.

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley

04:49 , Michael Jones

Round Three

Woodley needs to work harder to get inside Paul’s jab. At the minute he’s not offering much. Jake Paul’s three-punch combo is winning him this fight. He’s got some pretty quick hands when he unleashes it.

Paul lands an uppercut but Woodley shakes it off. An overhead right from Paul just misses but he’s done enough to win the round again.

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley

04:46 , Michael Jones

Round Two

Nerves probably played a part in the first round but Jake Paul seemed to grow into it. Woodley comes out with another wayward combo before Paul hits him with an overhead right.

There’s a bit of showboating from Paul as he evades a left hook.

Paul’s staying on the outside and managing to land his combinations. Straight left, straight right, left cross. Smart work from the YouTuber.

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley

04:42 , Michael Jones

Round One

Here we go! Woodley comes out with a wild, wayward right hook and just meets air.

Paul is keeping his distance and staying behind his jab. He keeps a respectful distance before coming close and landing a three-punch combination.

Woodley gets a body shot in towards the end of the round but it’s been a cagey start for both fighters.

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley

04:36 , Michael Jones

This is an eight round cruiserweight exhibition. Can Jake Paul pull it off? It’ll be his hardest fight yet if he does.

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley

04:18 , Michael Jones

Jake Paul has won all of his previous three fights by stoppage and swiftly halted Ben Askren, another former UFC fighter, in his last bout.

Tyron Woodley will make his professional boxing debut after a 27-fight MMA career, which included a three-year run as a dominant UFC welterweight champion. The UFC decided to part ways with Woodley following his loss to Vicente Luque in his last appearance in the octagon, a first-round submission loss at UFC 260 this past March.

Woodley, a talented former UFC champion, has seen his MMA career stall in recent years but is expected to pose an entirely different test for the social media superstar in the ring tonight.

“When I started boxing, I didn’t think I’d be here this fast,” Paul said. “My original goal was to fight Conor McGregor or Floyd Mayweather, because I knew I would have a big enough pay-per-view draw to do those things.

“Now I want to become world champion. I want to fight and beat Canelo Alvarez. This has been a fast, quick roller coaster ride, but I didn’t expect to be here. I just knew I loved fighting and I knew I was good at it.”

John Fury on Jake Paul

04:09 , Michael Jones

“Let’s make no mistake here, there’s a lot better fighters out there than Jake Paul and we don’t even know their names,” John told BT Sport.

“But, they haven’t got what he’s got. Charisma, brains and a selling point of millions of Instagram followers.

“This kid is going to be a sensation in the field he’s in and you can only admire him for what he’s done.

“He’s brought a new wave and a new audience to everything and he’s taken it to a new level, this kid. I’m intrigued where he is going to go with it. A long ways up for him.”

The main event is up next.

Amanda Serrano vs Yamileth Mercado

04:06 , Michael Jones

A clinical and professional performance from Serrano. She took her time, targeted the body and waited for the later rounds before unleashing a number of combinations to pummel Mercado into submission.

Those final two rounds were painful.

No surprises to hear that she’s awarded the victory by unanimous decision.

Amanda Serrano vs Yamileth Mercado

04:03 , Michael Jones

Round Ten

The final round and Mercado just wants to see it out. Serrano is after a knockout. She lands a powerful shot to the head and rocks Mercado who’s struggling to get away from the onslaught. Mercado’s cut is open and Serrano lands two massive head shots from long range.

Finally the bell goes and Mercado survives. Those last two rounds were brutal for her. She was holding on by the end, there’s only one way this fight is going.

Amanda Serrano vs Yamileth Mercado

04:00 , Michael Jones

Round Nine

Mercado’s cut! She tries to go toe-to-toe again against Serrano but gets pummeled. The left cheek is cut, bleeding and swelling. That was a great round for Serrano who landed a lot of punches without reply.

03:57 , Michael Jones

Round Eight

Mercado forces her way inside and tries to take Serrano on toe-to-toe. It seems to be working as she lands a few blows to the body and head. It may be too little too late for the Mexican though.

Amanda Serrano vs Yamileth Mercado

03:54 , Michael Jones

Round Seven

Serrano has never been floored as a professional boxer. If Mercado is going to win this fight she’ll need to do something that hasn’t been done before.

It’s Mercado’s best round but Serrano hurts her with a hit to the body and follows it up with a straight right to the face. The bell goes to stifle Serrano’s attack.

Amanda Serrano vs Yamileth Mercado

03:51 , Michael Jones

Round Six

Mercado is desperately trying to move away from the ropes but she doesn’t have the power to shift Serrano who hits her with a left-right body combo.

Round Four

The distance is Mercado’s biggest problem. She hasn’t been able to fully connect with her overhead right. Serrano’s footwork has been good as has her jab. Mercado forces Serrano into the corner and lands a decent punch right on the bell.

Mercado’s eye is starting to shown signs of wear and tear.

Amanda Serrano vs Yamileth Mercado

03:43 , Michael Jones

Round Three

“I'd keep him back until he's 27, 28, then let him go. Are they going to get carried away with Trevor Bryan? He's still a pup. Same with Tyson, we were never going to let him box for a title until he was 27.”

Round Six

This is a really close fight to call but I don’t think it’ll go the distance. Both fighters have landed big shots and it’ll be a let down if someone doesn’t get a knockout.

This has been a quieter round but Baranchyk lands a couple of decent punches before hitting Love around the back of the head. I’d say Love is winning so far which may force Baranchyk to take more risks.
