It’s fight night in Ohio!
Tonight (Aug. 29) from Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland is a special Sunday pay-per-view which pits social media sensation Jake Paul (3-0, 3 KOs) against former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley (pro boxing debut). This is an eight-rounder at a 190 lbs catchweight and unlike Logan Paul’s bout with Floyd Mayweather, this is an actual professional fight and will count on the official records.
The co-main event features one of the best and one of the hardest punching women’s boxers around, as seven-division world champion Amanda Serrano (40-1-1, 30 KOs) take on Yamileth Mercado (18-2, 5 KOs) for Serrano’s WBC and WBO featherweight titles.
Unlike Paul’s last fight against Ben Askren, Showtime PPV has the broadcast and it’s at a cost of $60 instead of the usual $75 you’ve seen for recent pay-per-views for boxing. No onslaught of musical performances to be had here.
We will have live coverage starting at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT. Ring walk times are not official but given the number of undercard fights be prepared by around 11 PM ET/8 PM PT and at the latest it’ll be 12 AM ET/9 PM PT.
