Paul won on Saturday night in Tampa with the brutal right in the sixth round, leaving the previous UFC The Woodley star, who lost to the streaming star in August with a split decision, slipped after the hit.
But video from the replay shows Paul twisting his right glove into something that looks like a sign to his opponent just seconds before Woodley hit the deck.
Fans battled the accusation that it had been agreed in advance that Paul had won.
One fan recorded a video of the alleged signal before subtitling it: ‘Done? Twist your arm to let him know it’s time to flop? ‘

Another tweeted, “Maybe it’s not that the punch was fake, but that it was ready to dive and Paul did his best to actually let it down convincingly.”
One boxing fan added: ‘That Jake Paul KO was 100% made. No fighter would ever eat that right hand without at least moving his head to try to slip it.
‘Look at the two twists of Jake Pauls’ wrist before he throws it, it seems like a signal to me. Woodley was paid defo to eat it. ‘
Meanwhile, one fan posted, ‘Jake Paul twisted his right arm before hitting, and Tyrone lowered his guard when the punch came … if that’s not adjusted, I don’t know what # PaulWoodley2 is.’
Social media users have noticed the twitching of their hands and believe this is a signal to rival Woodley
Some fans, however, claimed the knockout blow was genuine and defended undefeated Paul to create another stellar performance in the ring.
One fan said, ‘If anyone thinks this has been done, they are as stupid as the devil or have never watched boxing in their life. No matter what, you will be discredited. Shut up or step into the ring yourself and win better tonight ‘
Another claimed, “I despise Jake Paul, but it was actually a good clean shot. It was coming, I called him 10 seconds before you saw his right hand loading. It wasn’t made, no payout, Tyron messed up a lot and slept because of it. ‘
Meanwhile, one fan said, ‘He wasn’t made boy, stop being salty, Jake threw right hooks into his body all night and dropped a wooden hand to save his ribs.’
Some social media users defended the fight, arguing that the knockout was legitimate
This isn’t the first time Paul’s fight has been accused of intent after angry boxing fans accused Woodley of refusing to win their first bout in August.
Paul won the Cleveland Summer Competition by split decision after both fighters went the distance, with the deciding judge awarding the 24-year-old a 78-74 victory after the other two judges offered each fighter a 77-75 victory.
Supporters wondered why the former UFC Welterweight champion Woodley failed to take advantage of a startled Paul when the 39-year-old landed on top of the head of the streaming star in the fourth lap with his right hand and sent him into the ropes.
One fan said at the time, ‘I have to ask myself if it’s fixed or not. Woodley lingers and isn’t even a little bloated. Paul longs for air. ‘

Another tweeted, “I have a feeling Woodley was told not to knock him out … this game is arranged. I’m holding my fists for Fury’s fight as it’s a completely different ball game. #WoodleyPaul. ‘
Meanwhile, one fan posted, “It’s such a frustrating fight. Woodley took it down and then just stood in front of it and didn’t hit. It needs to be fixed.”
Woodley was brought in as a late replacement for Saturday’s fight for Tommy Fury, who pulled out last week due to a chest infection and a broken rib.
The former UFC star agreed to a rematch, with Paul claiming Woodley was in training when YouTuber asked him to replace Fury.

Paul also added a $ 500,000 clause in case Woodley manages to knock out YouTuber in Tampa, while the 24-year-old also donated a £ 9,000 Rolex watch to his opponent just days before the race.
YouTuber now wants to face UFC stars Jorge Masvidal or Nate Diaz in a future crusade as he continues his rise in the boxing world.
Speaking immediately afterwards, Paul said, “This is as real as possible, just like my right hand. I told you I’d fuck him. And I fucked him.

‘This guy is a legend and I respect him for accepting a two-week resignation from the fight. Tommy Fury is ab **** for retiring from the fight.
‘It was a tough fight. I had blood in my eyes. I had a job. I kept hitting the whole fight. He didn’t see it coming. Like a lumberjack, wood.
‘It must be the moment of my life. Look at my year. Four bouts, four knockouts. Masvidal and Nate Diaz – you are a whore because you left this arena. I’ll fuck you too. Anyone, anytime, anywhere. ‘
