By Tristen Critchfield Sep 14, 2021


It appears that both Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley were fighting clean during their boxing match last month.

Paul and Woodley submitted urine samples prior to the Aug. 29 event in Cleveland and the results came back negative, according to the Ohio State Athletic Commission. Initial reports stated that Paul and Woodley would not be tested in relation to their bout before it was confirmed that the fighters would have to submit urine samples to the commission. Prior to the event, Woodley hinted that he believed Paul was on performance-enhancing drugs.

Paul defeated Woodley via split decision in their matchup at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse to improve to 4-0 as a professional. Woodley, a former UFC champion, was making his pro boxing debut. Both men earned a disclosed $2 million payday for their efforts.

Four other fighters — Amanda Serrano, Yamileth Mercado, Charles Conwell and Juan Carlos Rubio — from the event were also tested, and their results were negative as well. Those athletes were required to take drug tests because they were involved in title bouts.
