Westlake’s Jake Paul, YouTube slash boxer, will face UFC alumnus Tyrone Woodley in a boxing match at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on August 29.
ESPN first reported the date and venue of the bout that will feature featherweight champion Amanda Serrano vs. Yamilette Mercado on the undercard.
Paul’s brother Logan is also trying to be taken seriously as a boxer and fought Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition match this summer.
Jake is now 3-0 in his previous fights. He defeated another internet character, AnEsonGib, and former NBA player Nate Robinson by knockout in 2020. Earlier this year, he defeated former UFC fighter Ben Askren in the first round by knockout. So far, Woodley is considered Paul’s toughest opponent.
Tickets will go on sale on July 22nd. Paul and Woodley will compete at 190 pounds. The event will be distributed by Showtime and will be available as a pay-per-view event.
