According to reports, the fight will take place at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, Fla, in a ten-round cruiserweight bout. The news follows Paul’s win over Nate Diaz in his last fight, ending speculating that the pair could have a rematch in boxing. The victory over Diaz was vital since it followed up on Paul’s first boxing loss that emerged against Tommy Fury. Meanwhile, August has a record of 10-1, with five wins coming by way of knockout. The boxer’s only loss came at the hands of Eric Abraham in 2018. August’s last fight was in August, beating Brandon Martin via a unanimous decision, after having been away from the sport for four years.
🥊 ANNOUNCED: Jake Paul will face Andre August on Dec 15th in Florida. August is 10-1-1 (5 KOs) as a professional boxer.

“I’m a professional boxer and I want to be world champion, so I need to pursue the path towards greatness against people who have been boxing their whole life. So far, my entire boxing career has been on pay-per-view, but now it’s about more than business. Now I want to build my experience in the ring against seasoned fighters. I’m coming to prove my greatness on Friday, December 15th live on DAZN for the world to see,” Paul
“I don’t talk very much. I’m all about that action! Jake Paul has the money, the fame, the team and the resources, but he doesn’t have my hunger. When that bell rings, I am going to go straight to Jake Paul and ring his bell and send him back to YouTube for good,” August
