YouTube-star-turned boxer Jake Paul (3-0, three KOs) will face former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley (19-7-1, seven KOs in MMA) in an eight-round boxing match Sunday night at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland. The fight will be broadcast by Showtime pay-per-view.
Paul, who has defeated YouTuber AnEsonGib, former NBA player Nate Robinson and former UFC fighter Ben Askren in his career, will face arguably his most difficult test in Woodley, who is regarded as one of the best welterweights in the history of the UFC. Woodley does not have extensive boxing experience but has recorded the third-most knockouts in UFC welterweight history (10) and a knockout record of 7-2 during his MMA career.
Sunday’s fight between Woodley and Paul could have up to 20,000 fans, according to Evening Standard. Here are some celebrities and influencers who are expected to be in attendance for the bout.
