It’s fight month and we have more information on the upcoming Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley event.
The pair will collide in a boxing match at Showtime’s upcoming pay-per-view event taking place August 29 in Cleveland, Ohio. For fans who are unable to watch it, they can buy it on pay-per-view for a steep price of $59.99.
Why is it so expensive given the headliners? Showtime Sports President Stephen Espinoza explains.
“It’s $59.99,” Espinoza told MMA Fighting. “That reflects a couple of things. It’s in the ballpark of where similar fights have been. It is at a point below a lot of other higher priced PPVs, but in particular on this one, I think you’ve got a full boxing card of exciting young fighters. That was the key.”
