Jake Paul’s contract stipulated that Tyron Woodley could not knock him out in their August fight, it has been claimed.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer beat the former MMA fighter by split decision, but Conor McGregor’s trainer Dillon Danis has claimed that Woodley was not allowed to knock out his opponent.
“That’s true,” Danis said of the rumors about the contract. “Tyron Woodley that’s why he hasn’t said anything about it, he had to sign an NDA [acuerdo de no divulgación] to say nothing about it. So it was like a double rule. “
Despite that, Danis does not believe that the outcome of the fight has been fixed. “The fight was not rigged. They could box, but you are not allowed to knock him out. So when he was on the ropes, he just stayed there. “
Paul’s next opponent, in December, is Tommy Fury, brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson, and Danis is hoping for a win from Paul. “Now he’s fighting Tommy Fury, which is terrible. He’s like a Jersey Shore reject. It will be a field day for him, it is a smart decision ”.

The claims follow accusations by Father John Fury that Paul’s team was “uncomfortable” during the negotiations, inserting “strange” clauses into the contract.
“The contract has been strange. If I was going to go through what they put in the contract, we would be here all day, “said John Fury. “I have said yes to everything; yeah yeah yeah yeah, do what you have to do because I know Jake Paul can’t beat Tommy no matter what he does. “
