YouTube star turned boxer Jake Paul will face former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in a pay-per-view (PPV) boxing match on August 29. The $60 PPV event starts at 8 p.m. ET and will be streamed live via Showtime and Fite.TV.

Paul has won all three of his boxing matches by knockout so far, though two of those matches were against non-fighters, like former NBA player Nate Robinson. In his last fight, Paul knocked out mixed martial artist Ben Askren in less than two minutes, but Askren was also on the receiving end of the fastest knockout in UFC history.

Woodley held UFC's welterweight championship belt from July 2016 to March 2019 but lost his last four fights. Now 39-years-old, Woodley is no longer under contract with UFC but his manager, Malki Kawa, said he'll likely earn "a multi-million dollar payday" for fighting Paul. When he was UFC champ, Woodley earned $500,000 for defending the belt.

Paul's older brother, Logan Paul, fought undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition back in June, but Jake's fight against Woodley will be an officially sanctioned cruiserweight match with a 190lb weight limit. Woodley is shorter than Paul and typically fought at 170lbs in UFC, so Paul will enter the fight with a size advantage.

Legendary boxing trainer and analyst Teddy Atlas said he expects Paul to knock out Woodley thanks to his prior experience in the boxing ring, Woodley's style as a mixed martial artist, and the age and physical disparities between the two fighters.
