JAKE PAUL and Tyron Woodley have been accused of fixing their fight by conspiracy theorists online.
The Problem Child, 24, produced a huge sixth-round knockout to move to 5-0 em sua carreira profissional.
But some people online have become fixated on a hand gesture just moments prior, rather than the massive right hook that was to follow.
Footage shows a seemingly innocuous moment in which Paulo appears to twist his right glove around 90 degrees, with the knockout blow following immediately after.
Twitter users have fixated on this moment, alleging that the bout was fixed.
One rambled: “Nice signal with your right wrist – he took the knock down right after. RIGGED.”
While another fumed: “Look at that glove twist! He’s telling Woodley to hit the deck. What a joke.”
A third garbled: “He literally dropped his guard when Jake Paul was coming in. Come on man, no wonder why people don’t give as much of a s*** about boxing, it’s rigged to hell.”

enquanto isso, a fourth asked: “Rigged? The twist of the hand to let him know it’s time to flop?”
Enquanto outro disse: “He’s not saying the hit was fake… he’s saying the fight was rigged. TW was paid to take that shot.”
A different Twitter user pointed out that he felt it was merely a tactical move by Paul, escrevendo: “Listen I’ve been a jake paul hater for a while.
“Jake shifted his left shoulder and dropped his right which is a typical indication of a body shot. Tyron dropped his guard as he went overhand right and just landed a very clean shot.”
Paulo, 24, estava full of respect for his felled opponent after the fight.
Ele disse: “Isso é tão real quanto pode ser, assim como minha mão direita.
“Eu disse que ia foder com ele e eu o fodei.
“Esse cara é uma lenda, não tire nada de sua carreira como um UFC campeão e respeite-o por levar a luta em duas semanas’ perceber.
“Ele é guerreiro, aquela foi uma luta dura ali, ele é uma lenda.”
