Jake Paul, scary!

Westlake's Jake Paul, the YouTube personality slash rapper slash boxer, will take on UFC alum Tyron Woodley in a boxing match to be held at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse Aug. 29.

ESPN first reported the date and location for the bout, which will feature women's featherweight champion Amanda Serrano vs. Yamileth Mercado on the undercard.

Paul's brother Logan is also attempting to be taken seriously as a boxer and fought Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition match earlier this summer.

Jake is now 3-0 in his previous fights. He defeated another internet personality, AnEsonGib, and former NBA player Nate Robinson in 2020, both by knockout. Earlier this year, he defeated retired UFC fighter Ben Askren in a first-round knockout. Woodley is regarded as Paul's stiffest competition yet. 

Tickets go on sale July 22. Paul and Woodley will compete at 190 lbs. The event will be distributed by Showtime and will be available as a pay-per-view event.
