The boxing match pitting social media personality Jake Paul against Tyron Woodley proved to be a solid draw for Showtime on pay-per-view.
According to a report from the Wrestling Observer, the card drew approximately 500,000 pay-per-view buys. Digital sales via Showtime have been tallied, but figures from other providers that offered the fight have not been determined. Still, those totals are not expected to alter the final numbers significantly.
Paul vs. Woodley took place on Aug. 29 at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, and saw Paul earn a split-decision triumph in the evening’s main event. Paul improved to 4-0 as a professional boxer in the victory, while Woodley dropped his pro debut.
Jake Paul wasn’t able to outsell his brother, Logan Paul, whose exhibition matchup with Floyd Mayweather on June 6 sold nearly 1 million pay-per-view buys. While Woodley pushed for a rematch in the immediately aftermath of the bout, Paul has claimed to have moved on from that after the former UFC champ failed to get an “I love Jake Paul” tattoo as part of a pre-fight bet.
