SHOWTIME Boxing showcases the most talked about combat sporting event of the summer; a battle between former Strikeforce and UFC Welterweight Champion, ‘The Chosen One’, Tyron Woodley, taking it out on renowned YouTuber & social media sensation, Jake ‘The Problem Child’ Paul (3-0) at a cruiserweight of 190lbs, in a professional boxing exhibition match that is expected to make history! Paul will be expecting to run his record up to 4-0, while Woodley will be making his professional boxing debut.
This spectacle is easily the biggest challenge 24-year-old, Cleveland born influencer and master troll, Jake, has had in his short career. As well as his first time headlining a Showtime PPV event. So far, he has gathered wins over another social media influencer, YouTuber AnEson Gibb, former NBA star guard, Nate Robinson, and one of Woodley’s friends, former UFC fighter Ben Askren. Much to the dismay of the MMA community, Paul quickly finished off Askren in their affair back on April 17th of this year.
This time around, Paul will be seeking some legitimacy with a ‘W’ over the 39-year-old Woodley; but ‘The Chosen One’ is by far a significantly more menacing striker than Askren was, having garnered nearly a half-dozen notable knockouts during his storied UFC career... Paul may get more than he bargained for this time around.
When you look at the money side of this story, you have to wonder if it really matters at all to Paul if he wins any of these bouts, since he is making bank whether he wins or loses. In his first exclusive Showtime PPV deal he has been granted 50% control over the broadcast and promotion of the fight, which is unprecedented for any boxer in the history of the sport. If you ask him what he cares about, he claims all he cares about is promoting the sport: “All I’m trying to do is having boxing take over as one of the top two sports,” Paul said. “I want [boxing] to take over the NBA, take over the NFL and I want to take over MMA, which I believe took over past boxing for a long period of time.” - CBS Sports
In the co-main event, they are featuring the return of Amanda ‘Real Deal’ Serrano as she defends her unified Women’s Featherweight titles against Yamileth Mercado, as well as a battle between #TysonFury’s brother, reality TV star, Tommy ‘TNT’ Fury, against Anthony ‘Pretty Boy’ Taylor, which will be opening the card.
The ‘Real Deal’ is plausibly one of the best women’s boxers there is, period. She holds a legendary 40-1-1 record and has racked up no less than 30 knockouts over the years. Holding an 18-2 record, the title contender, is the last knockout Amanda needs to tie the all-time record by a woman regardless of weight class, which is currently held by the infamous ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’, Christy Martin.
Meanwhile, Fury has been rumored to be Paul’s next opponent in a clash later in the year. With a professional record of 6-0 ‘TNT’ is expected to blow out the ‘Pretty Boy’, as the oddsmakers favorite.
Also on the card, we have a WelterWeight bout taking place between Ivan ‘The Beast’ Barancyhk vs. Montana ‘Too Pretty’ Love, an exciting Heavyeight bout between Daniel ‘Dynamite’ Dubois and Juiseppe ‘Joe’ Cusumano. What a wild night full of fights we have to share with you!
