It’s fight week once again with another big PPV event on tap. This time, the eyes of the fight world descend upon Cleveland, Ohio, as social media influencer Jake Paul looks to take the next step in his professional boxing career when he faces off with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. The fight headlines the latest Showtime Boxing PPV event and is set to go down inside the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. The fight is scheduled for eight rounds in the cruiserweight division.

Paul holds a perfect 3-0 record as a professional fighter, with wins over a fellow YouTuber, a former NBA star, and a former UFC fighter. That most recent win came against Ben Askren, a UFC veteran who is also friends with Woodley. Askren was never known as a striker, leading many to call for Paul to face an actually threatening opponent.

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.

The card fills out nicely with decent names below the main event in a special five-fight main card attraction. Unified women’s featherweight champion Amanda Serrano will put her trio of titles on the line against Yamileth Mercado in the co-main event. Heavyweight prospect Daniel Dubois is back to take on Joe Cusumano and fellow celebrity attraction, Tommy Fury, opens the proceedings when he takes on Anthony Taylor at cruiserweight.
