A video has surfaced of YouTube boxer Jake Paul claiming that the sport is ‘f***ing rigged’.
Paul ‘defeated’ former UFC champion Tyron Woodley over the weekend. The social media sensation is now 4-0 professionally, having beaten a fellow YouTuber, ex-NBA star and washed-up UFC reject previously.
In wake of the bout with Woodley, some fans took to their socials to claim that the fight was rigged, with Paul clearly hurt at one point in time but his opponent deciding to ease off the pressure, rather than go for the kill.
Fight fans have now dug up an old clip of Paul himself claiming that boxing is rigged, which raises major question marks over whether the result of his fight with Woodley was authentic.

YouTubers taking to boxing and bringing their social media circus with them has never been met fondly by hardcore fight fans. They’re forever going to question the legitimacy of their intentions.
This is just another example of that…
