Tyron Woodley looks to put an end to the hype train known as Jake Paul on Sunday night inside the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio. The two fighters are set to throw down in the main event of a Showtime Boxing PPV event featuring four other undercard bouts. The two will meet at a contracted weight of 190 pounds.
Paul, the YouTube influencer-turned boxer, is looking to remain perfect in his professional carer against his most dangerous opponent yet. Woodley is a former UFC champion and one of the best welterweights in mixed martial arts history. Woodley is also a far more accomplished striker than Paul's previous opponent, Ben Askren, another UFC veteran.
"It's going to be another show on Sunday. I'm putting on another masterful performance and a boxing clinic. This guy is going to sleep and getting turned into another meme. Just like his friend Ben Askren," Paul said. "After Sunday, nobody is ever going to talk about Woodley ever again. He's a speed bump on the road of my career."
Woodley, who is making his debut in boxing, enlisted the help of renowned Cuban trainer Pedro Diaz as well as all-time great Floyd Mayweather to prepare for this showdown.

Elsewhere, unified women's featherweight champion Amanda Serrano is back when she puts her trio of titles on the line against Yamileth Mercado in the co-main event. Serrano (40-1-1) has not tasted defeat since April 2012 while amassing one of the best resumes in the sport's history. She sits just one knockout shy of tying the all-time mark for a woman currently held by Christy Martin at 31. Mercado, meanwhile, will make her U.S. debut with an 18-2 record and just five knockouts to her name.
