Jake Paul’s Next Opponent To Be Pro Boxer Andre August On December 15

Andre August (10-1 as a professional boxer) will face Jake Paul in his upcoming bout, officials told ESPN on Wednesday.

The former YouTuber who is now a prizefighter will take on August in Orlando, Florida on December 15. The eight-round fight is scheduled to take place at cruiserweight (200 pounds).

This is a change in approach for Paul, who has mostly faced older mixed martial artists who have established themselves in the UFC during his boxing career.

Although this fight lacks the celebrity value of earlier ones, Paul’s detractors have long wanted him to face respectable opponents, and August is by far the most seasoned opponent Paul has faced.

“I’m a professional boxer and I want to be world champion, so I need to pursue the path towards greatness against people who have been boxing their whole life,” Paul said in a statement.

In August, Paul (7-1, 4 KOs) defeated former UFC star Nate Diaz via unanimous decision. Tommy Fury was the opponent of the Ohio native, who now resides and trains in Puerto Rico, when he suffered his first career loss.

Tyron Woodley and Anderson Silva, two former UFC champions, have also been defeated by Paul, 26.

“Pound-for-pound, the great Terence Crawford fought a 9-14 opponent in his ninth fight, Canelo Alvarez fought a 0-1 opponent, and Gervonta Davis fought an opponent that had 31 losses,” said Nakisa Bidarian, Paul’s business partner and co-founder of Most Valuable Promotions. “But Terence, Canelo and Gervonta didn’t have the world watching. Jake Paul does, and he’s once again putting it all on the line taking on a 10-1 opponent.”

August, 35, has won five straight fights. The fighter from Houston will be participating in his first eight-round match.

“Jake Paul has the money, the fame, the team and the resources but he doesn’t have my hunger,” August said in a statement. “When that bell rings, I am going to go straight to Jake Paul and ring his bell and send him back to YouTube for good.”

Shadasia Green vs. Franchón Crews-Dezurn for the WBC women’s super middleweight title will be the co-main event of the card.
