Looks like interest in Jake Paul and his boxing circus is waning.
According to some new alarming numbers, Jake Paul’s rematch with former MMA champion Tyron Woodley didn’t do very well in the PPV department.
According to DAZN’s Steven Muehlhausen, Paul vs. Woodley rematch sold less than 65,000 PPV buys on Cable and Satellite PPV. The reporter did note that “streaming numbers are unknown.”
Sources: Have learned that Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 "bombed" on cable/satelitte PPV. Numbers are below November's #AEW Full Gear which did under 65,000 buys on terrestrial TV. Streaming numbers are unknown. #boxing

Jorge Masvidal was all about the new report, and he thrashed Paul in a funny tweet:
“Bitch boy can’t afford the big boys Never again do I want to hear my name associated with the fake. 3 0 5 day is coming”

The reporter who shed light on the numbers chalked it up to too many PPV events.
That is a fair argument. Only other things that come to mind are: 1) No one wanted to see a rematch. 2) That was the sixth Combat Sports PPV in six weeks (4 Boxing, 2 UFC) with Crawford-Porter, Tank-Cruz and Paul-Woodley being overpriced. Way too many PPVs https://t.co/7qXjnAMPH4

If you have the right fight, people will buy it.
No one wants to see Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley fight again.
Get a real boxer to fight Paul and there’s no doubt people will pay to see Paul get his ass kicked.
