The boxing pay-per-view card headlined by a clash between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley has an official price point.
Showtime Sports president Stephen Espinoza revealed to MMAFighting.com that the Aug. 29 event will cost $59.99. The card takes place at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland and airs via pay-per-view beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Showtime. A previously announced bout pitting Amanda Serrano against Yamileth Mercado will serve as the co-main event.
“That reflects a couple of things,” Espinoza told MMAFighting regarding the price. “It’s in the ballpark of where similar fights have been. It is at a point below a lot of other higher priced pay-per-views, but in particular on this one, I think you’ve got a full boxing card of exciting young fighters. That was the key.”
On Monday, Showtime Sports announced three more bouts that will round out the Paul vs. Woodley undercard. Former junior welterweight world champion Ivan Barancyhk will face Montana Love in a 10-round contest; No. 1-ranked WBA contender Daniel Dubois will meet Joe Cusmano in a 10-round heavyweight affair; and Tommy Fury, the younger brother of heavyweight king Tyson Fury, will square off against former Bellator competitor Anthony Taylor in a six-round matchup at 180 pounds.
“Look, these are some of the most exciting young fighters in the sport today,” Espinoza said. “I think that’s what Jake wants to be able to say with his events.”
