It’s another Jake Paul fight night in the boxing ring.
Tonight (Aug. 29) from Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, the social media star Paul (3-0, 3 KOs) will welcome yet another former MMA champion into the boxing world. Last time it was Ben Askren, this time it’s Tyron Woodley, who won welterweight titles in Strikeforce and the UFC. Unlike Askren, Woodley can actually strike even if he’s not known as an elite boxer for MMA. His power is something Paul hasn’t had to deal with at all in his three pro bouts.
This is NOT an exhibition — it is scheduled for eight rounds at a 190 lbs catchweight and the hype surrounding this has been massive. It has only grown as a result of the press conferences and the weigh-in shenanigans.
As for the legitimate boxing on the PPV, seven-division world champion Amanda Serrano (40-1-1, 30 KOs) take on Yamileth Mercado (18-2, 5 KOs) for Amanda’s WBC and WBO featherweight titles. This is another chapter in the Puerto Rico vs. Mexico rivalry, with Serrano hoping to score one for PR and keep her titles. You’ll also want to check out Ivan Baranchyk vs. Montana Love, as Baranchyk is fighting for the first time since his eight-knockdown classic (but KO loss) vs. Jose Zepeda.
Here are the details you need on tonight’s show, including bout order, start time, live stream, and more.
