Paul had the better stats during the bout
Woodley was furming afterwards and blasted one judge’s decision to award him just two rounds as ‘laughable’.
But the stats tell a different story.
Paul landed 30 per cent of his 122 jabs to Woodley’s 23 per cent of the 48 he threw.
Woodley landed 41 of the 115 power shots he threw which was 36 per cent.
Paul managed just 35 of 85 thrown but was more accurate with a 41 per cent success rate.
In total, Ohio man Paul landed 71 of the 207 punches he threw (34 per cent) while Woodley connected with 53 of 163 attempted (32 per cent).
Of Paul’s 71, 22 of them were body shots while just six of Woodley’s 52 landed were.
Speaking after the contest, Paul was asked what’s next and said: “Honestly, we’ll see. I’ve been boxing for 18 months now.
“I haven’t been to the dentist, I barely got my hair cut in the last two years.
“My teeth are crooked, my nose is crooked. I’ve dedicated the last 18 months to this. I haven’t stopped,
“I think I might need to chill out for a second and figure out who I am. I’m only 24, I’m changing, I’m growing, I’m learning a lot.
“I’m going through ups and downs and I’m making mistakes. But I’m keeping my head straight and we’ll see.”
Despite Paul’s apparent hesitance to return to the ring, Woodley demanded a rematch saying he won the fight.
The former MMA star blasted: “I feel like if that was the second biggest pay-per-view, then round two is gonna be bigger than that.
“I feel like I won the fight. I feel like Jake’s a great opponent. That’s why I came in great shape.
“The fact that one judge gave me two rounds is laughable. No disrespect, but f**k that [Tommy] Fury fight, me and Jake need to run that back.”
