YouTube boxer Jake Paul will slug it out with former UFC welterweight Mike Perry atop the DAZN pay-per-view (PPV) fight card scheduled for Sat., July 20, 2024 at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, a boxing spectacle that also features unified featherweight champion Amanda Serrano taking on Stevie Morgan in the co-main event.

Paul opened as the -240 betting favorite against +190 for Perry, according to BetOnline.ag. Probably because “The Problem Child” is 9-1 as a pro boxer with six knockouts, whereas “Platinum” was knocked out in his one and only boxing match back in 2015. Expect plenty of movement with that line as we get closer to fight night.

“This guy is a f*cking lunatic,” Paul said on YouTube. “He’s undefeated in bare knuckle, which is probably the craziest sport in the world. Not to mention, this fight has been brewing for years. I think this fight is going to have some amazing press conference moments and really entertaining stuff that comes from it, but it is a major risk. I’m literally potentially sacrificing the biggest moment of my career, the biggest payday of my career if I lose to Mike Perry. But for some reason, these are the positions that I like to put myself in.”

Paul, 27, was originally scheduled to box former WBC heavyweight champion Mike Tyson on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas; however, the “Iron” pugilist was forced to postpone due to illness. Their Netflix showdown was eventually rebooked for November, though a loss against Perry could throw a wrench into Paul’s plans.
