Paul is undefeated in three professional fights against YouTubers and ex-basketball and UFC stars
Retired UFC fighter Woodley, 39, had a 19-7 career in the MMA world, holding the UFC Welterweight Championship between 2016 and 2019.
It means the American is a similar challenge to Askren’s in terms of reputation, with Paul’s most recent opponent also having 19 wins to his name in his MMA career.
The 39-year-old described Paul’s challenge as the “easiest fight of my career” and vows to take the 24-year-old out of boxing.
Woodley said: ‘It’s the easiest fight of my career and the biggest purse of my career all in one night. Basically, they brought me in to take out the trash.

“Can’t wait to silence this bastard. This is being done for the culture, the entire MMA/boxing community, to rid this man of martial arts.”
After beating Askren, Paul challenged UFC president Dana White to a fight in the ring after the MMA supremo predicted he would not beat his final opponent in a boxing fight.
The fight with Woodley is the latest in what will become a long list of high-profile matches involving YouTubers, including Paul’s brother Logan, who will fight Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition match later this month.
Paul was recently named as the third highest paid boxer of the past 12 months
Jake recently antagonized the 50-0 boxing icon during a pre-fight meeting between his brother and Mayweather, which led to some skirmishes between the two teams.
Jake was recently named as the third highest paid boxer of the past 12 months, with only Anthony Joshua and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez earning more than the American.
According to sports finance aggregator Sporty, Paul took in more than £14 million beating Robinson and Askren, as well as endorsements earned outside the ring.
