Jake Paul returning to the ring to fight little known Andre August in Orlando

Jake Paul will return to the ring for the the third time this year to fight Andre August on December 15 in Orlando. The 7-1 (4 KOs) YouTuber-turned-boxer is facing a little-known professional who is 10-1-1 (5 KOs).


Paul's first fight of the year saw him defeated by Tommy Fury, before returned earlier this year to beat Nate Diaz.


The Problem Child now returns to the ring for his last bout of the year, headlining the Friday night non-pay-per-view, MVP event, with Paul insisting this fight is not about money, with it not being on pay-per-view, but instead he wants to gain experience on his ambitious journey to becoming a world champion.


"This is my road to becoming a world champion,” Paul told MMA Junkie.


“When I’ve said that and uttered those words, I think people took it as a joke or, ‘He’s just saying that to market himself or make himself a bigger fighter or ruffle feathers and get media headlines and stuff,’ but they didn’t actually think I was being serious.


"I’m dead serious. That is what I’m going to do and this is the step in that direction.

“We’ve done the big pay-per-views. We’ve generated $200 million in sales, and this is now taking a step back from like business, and MMA fighters, and big names, to just grow my experience, to stay sharp, to elevate my level of opposition and to fight real pro boxers who have been doing this their whole life."
