Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley date: Live stream, TV channel, UK start time as UFC ace takes on YouTube boxer
JAKE PAUL returns to the ring this summer against yet another former UFC star.
The Problem Child's fourth professional outing will see him lock horns with former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.
The blue touch paper for their fight was lit moments before Paul's demolition of Woodley's good friend Ben Askren in April.
The pair were involved in a heated back-and-forth in the dressing room that left Woodley fuming.
And their subsequent slanging match on social media has teed up the interesting grudge match, which, on paper, is the toughest fight of Paul's young boxing career.
Here's everything you need to know about the pair's upcoming bout:
What date is Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley?

What channel is the fight on?

What have they said?
Paul said of the former UFC star: “He’s a good striker. He’s known for knocking people out. But I think when I beat Tyron, people have to put respect on my name.
“But that’s not what I’m here for, to be honest. I already know how good I am. I know that this is going to be another easy fight.
"That’s why Showtime is in business with me. You’re looking at the future of boxing.”
Woodley said of his clash with the social media star: "Easiest fight of my career and biggest purse of my career all in one night.
"Basically, they brought me in to take out the trash. Can't wait to shut this b***h up.
"This is getting done for the culture, the whole MMA/boxing community, to rid this guy of combat sports.”
