Former Youtuber Jake Paul returns to the ring for a cruiserweight bout against Andre August this Friday, December 15. The fight is set for 8 rounds at the Caribe Royale in Orlando, Florida. The bout will be available on DAZN, with coverage starting at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Paul (7-1, 4 KOs) got back into the win column with an unanimous decision win over former UFC standout Nate Diaz in August. He lost the first fight of his career earlier this year to Tommy Fury in Dubai. It’s apparent that Paul still believes in the boxing dream and now prepares for August (10-1, 5 KOs). The 35-year-old out of Texas has minimal fight experience and whether he’ll be any type of competition remains questionable.
However, before the fight, the two will meet one last time to make it official by weight. The target is 185 pounds for this upcoming cruiserweight bout. You can view the weigh-in through the video player at the top of the page. It will also be live on the DAZN Boxing YouTube page.
Paul is a -650 betting favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. August is the underdog at +425 odds. The favored method of victory is Paul to win by decision at -135.
