It is time to throw down. No more talking or staredowns are needed to hype up this one as social media star Jake Paul continues his crossover into boxing when he takes on former UFC champion Tyron Woodley. The two will meet inside the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on Sunday night in the main event of a Showtime Boxing PPV event. They meet at a contracted weight of 190 pounds and both weighed in right on that number on Saturday. 

Paul has made quite the debut into the sweet science with three bouts all ending rather quickly. The first came against another YouTuber in AnEson Gibb when he floored him in just over two minutes in January 2020. Then in November 2020, Paul made light work of former NBA player Nate Robinson in a knockout that went viral. Finally, Paul flattened former MMA champion Ben Askren in the first round of their bout in April, but many of the purists of the sport have called on him to face an opponent that will provide at least some resistance.

“I’m polarizing, I get it. I don’t care what people think. Most people aren’t like that,” Paul said at the final press conference. “They’re scared to rub people the wrong way. Some people want to see me lose, but I’m here to stay.

Woodley can provide just that. The former champion, who was able to defend his title four times, owns seven knockouts in 19 career wins. His star-making moment came with a thunderous first-round knockout of legend Robbie Lawler to earn the 170-pound title in 2016. The biggest questions he’ll face when he enters the ring in Cleveland is just how quickly he can pick up the skills needed to outbox Paul when he makes his debut and how much age will play at factor at 39.
