How Much Jake Paul Is Set To Earn During Tyron Woodley Fight

If you're one of them who still don't understand why YouTubers are taking to the boxing ring, well the general consensus is because of one thing - money.

According to sportingfree.com, Jake Paul, 23, is guaranteed $1 million and his total pay-out is set to be $2 million after the PPV numbers come in.

Tyron Woodley, 39, is set to earn half of what Jake's getting, which is $500,000 upfront and an estimated $1 million after PPV.

The fight will take place in the US tomorrow night (Aug 29) and is set for eight rounds due to the weight limit being set at 190lbs (cruiserweight).

It will be a late one for Brits that want to tune in, as coverage starts at 1 am BST on Monday Aug 30.

The ring walks are set to take place around 4am UK time and the match is said to start around 5am.

Timings are subject to change and depends on the results and duration of the events on the undercard.

The fight is hosted in Cleveland, Ohio at the Rocket Mortgage Field House which is the home of the Cleveland Cavaliers NBA team.

The YouTuber, turned boxer, says he is ready for his fourth professional fight versus the former MMA man.

Some are not quite buying into the idea that a YouTuber like Jake can just transform into a pro boxer.

However, his sparring partner, Anthony Taylor, who happens to be Tommy Fury's next opponent, has come to the defence of Logan's younger brother.

According to Sky Sports, Taylor said: "Jake is not a YouTuber anymore.

"He is a pro boxer.

"People say Jake doesn't take it seriously. I'm with him every day. His growth in three years is equivalent to someone else's growth in six years.

"Imagine boxing for three years, you might go to the gym two or three times per week for an hour. Jake goes three times per day, six days per week, for three years straight.

"If you achieve mini-goals, you will get better. And he is getting better every time he fights.

"He has put the hours in, the repetition.

"Jake has developed himself into a professional boxer.

"If you keep working hard and winning, the public cannot deny you."
