JAKE PAUL labelled the decision for a judge to give Tyron Woodley a win as ‘bulls***’.
The YouTuber won his fourth professional boxing fight in the early hours of Monday morning after a split decision.
Two judges gave the fight to Jake Paul but Phil Rogers backed Tyron Woodley
After a cagey opening three rounds, the contest burst into life in the fourth as Woodley finally went on the offensive.
But things settled back down again towards the end of the eight rounds.
This was new territory for Paul who was taken the distance for the first time.
And when it came to the judges’ scores, he won on a split decision.
Two had it in the Problem Child’s favour – one 77-75, one 78-74 – while the other went for Woodley 77-75.
But asked if he was surprised Woodley got the nod from one of the judges, Paul said: “100 per cent. That was bulls*** come on.
“I don’t know what they were looking at.
“Especially in my home town, where’s that judge at?”
The official scorecard showed it was Phil Rogers who backed Woodley with the final five rounds.
All three judges gave Paul the opening two rounds and Woodley the fourth.
But Jaime Garayua awarded Paul five of the eight while Dana DePaulo only handed Woodley round three and four – with Paul taking the last four.
Former UFC champ Woodley was furious with the result – and demanded a rematch.
He said: “The fact that one judge gave me two rounds is laughable.
“I feel like I won the fight. I feel like Jake’s a great opponent.
“That’s why I came in great shape.
“No disrespect, but f*** that [Tommy] Fury fight, me and Jake need to run that back.
“Off the top, I want the rematch. Nobody is gonna sell the pay-per-view like we did. The Fury fight [ain’t gonna do that].”
“I feel like if that was the second biggest pay-per-view, then round two is gonna be bigger than that.”
