The match between 24-year-old Paul and 39-year-old Woodley materialized after a backstage encounter before Paul’s last boxing match with former MMA world champion Ben Askren.

Woodley called out Paul for a fight right after it was over, and the social media celebrity accepted the challenge.

Paul vs. Woodley: Unusual side bet

One strange thing at stake at this bout is that the loser will have to get a tattoo with his opponent’s name if he loses. Paul will have to be inked with “I love Tyron Woodley” if he is defeated, and Woodley will be obliged to get one that says “I love Jake Paul” if he emerges the loser.

The Paul vs. Woodley boxing card will take place at 8pm ET on Aug. 29 at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Paul’s hometown. There will be a live audience at the arena, and tickets start at $10.

Showtime pay-per-view will air the fight, but you don’t need to be a regular subscriber to Showtime to pay for and access the fight. Showtime’s broadcast is expected to start at 8pm ET, but Paul and Woodley will likely enter the arena around midnight ET, depending on how long the earlier matches last.

Paul vs.Woodley PPV price

Watching the cruiserweight boxing showdown won’t be cheap. According to Showtime Sports President Stephen Espinoza, the match will cost viewers $59.99.

Espinoza said the price point of the match is below a lot of other more expensive PPVs, and promised a full boxing card of exciting young fighters.

Showtime recently released the first episode of the sports documentary series “All Access”, which talks about the fight. The show features an introduction to the match, details about the boxers, and behind-the-scenes footage of their fight preparations.
