The much-anticipated rematch of Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley is finally here.
Paul and Woodley are set for their second bout this calendar year; the YouTube star-turned-professional boxer earned a split-decision victory over the former UFC welterweight champion on Aug. 29, when one judge scored it 77-75 for Woodley and the other two scored it 77-75 and 78-74 in favor of Paul.

How will the rematch play out? Paul remains as yet undefeated in his brief professional career, surprising other fighters who have made sports a profession. Regardless of how the fight proceeds, one thing is certain: It’s sure to feature plenty of back-and-forth jawing between Paul and Woodley.
Indeed, Paul made Woodley get a tattoo saying “I love Jake Paul” just to enact a rematch. That will certainly come into play throughout the week and leading up into Saturday’s match. (That said, it’s worth knowing Paul was initially set to take on Tommy Fury — Tyson Fury’s younger brother — before the latter backed out of the fight).
With that, Sporting News has everything you need to know about the rematch, including time, date, fighter bios and more:
