Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley final drug test results announced after boxing fight
Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley both returned negative drug tests after their boxing fight last month.
Paul outpointed the former UFC welterweight champion over eight rounds before being awarded victory by split-decision.
Debate had raged before the fight over whether drug testing would be in place with Woodley accusing Paul of taking steroids.
But the Ohio Athletic Commission has now confirmed both fighters were tested after the fight – and both were cleared.
Undercard fighters Amanda Serrano, Yamileth Mercado, Charles Conwell and Juan Carlos Rubio also tested negative.
Paul repeatedly denied accusations from Woodley that he was cheating in the build-up to the fight, which was the YouTube star's fourth as a professional.
In one of their final face-to-face meetings before touching gloves, Woodley said to Paul: "Speaking of bumps, those kind of bumps you had on your face alarm me. You wouldn't be happening to be taking PEDs, are you?
To which Paul replied: "Are we getting drug tested, or are we not? Listen, if you want to build excuses right now, go ahead."
And Woodley responded: "I was just asking. I looked at your face and you look kind of silly. You have rage and you're acting all unorthodox. You know, those are signs of the PEDs. Are you taking PEDs?"
Paul also said during the build-up to the fight – which was Woodley's boxing debut: "These guys are trying to do anything at this point to discredit me, to make me look stupid, or to make any excuse.
“How can you even make this claim? It’s clout. They’re running out of excuses.
“I’m over here eating ice cream, and these guys are accusing me of taking performance-enhancing drugs. I’m packing on some fat because I’m going to drive that fat through Tyron Woodley’s skull. That’s what gives me my power.”
Paul is currently in talks with a number of fighters over a return to the ring this year.
The 24-year-old may fight again in December but is also considering waiting until the new year.
Tommy Fury, brother of heavyweight world champion Tyson, is among the leading contenders having featured on the undercard of Paul's win over Woodley.
Fury laboured to a points win over Paul's sparring partner Anthony Taylor despite the MMA fighter taking part in only his second professional boxing bout.
