JAKE PAUL's fight with Tyron Woodley "bombed" on the box office as it made less than 65,000 buys.
Paul defeated Woodley, who only had two weeks to prepare after replacing the injured Tommy Fury, with a sixth-round knockout earlier this month.
According to DAZN's Steven Muehlhausen, however, less than 65,000 people watched the YouTuber's second fight with the MMA hero on pay-per-view.
That is less than professional wrestling promotion AEW's Full Gear show from last month.
Muehlhausen tweeted: "Sources: Have learned that Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley 2 "bombed" on cable/satelitte [sic] PPV.
"Numbers are below November's #AEW Full Gear which did under 65,000 buys on terrestrial TV. Streaming numbers are unknown."
Paul boasted about his PPV numbers after his first victory over Woodley in August.
The YouTuber claimed it made 1.5million buys, but it actually didn't make it past 500,000.

The American remains undefeated as he has won all five of his fights ever since switching to boxing last year.
However, the 24-year-old has never faced a professional boxer and has instead shared the ring with a fellow YouTuber, a former NBA player and two MMA veterans.
Paul was also labelled a "joke" by boxing pundit Stephen A. Smith, who believes the social media personality is conning the public.
Smith insists he now needs to actually step in with a bonafide boxer to prove his worth in the ring.
