Fans will have to splash a hefty amount if they want to watch Jake Paul take on pro boxer Hasim Rahman Jr. at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, August 6.
The YouTuber-turned-prizefighter will try and extend his unbeaten run to 6-0 when he comes up against the son of two-time world heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman on SHOWTIME pay-per-view.
As well as Paul vs Rahman Jr, the card will feature Amanda Serrano, who will defend her Unified Featherweight World Title against Argentine Brenda “La Pumita” Carabajal in what promises to be an entertaining match-up.
Brandun Lee will also come up against Will Madera in a 10 round super-lightweight clash.
So how much will the event cost for fans?
You can order the PPV on Showtime's website for $59.99 – a price that has sparked plenty of reaction from social media in recent hours.
In fact, fellow YouTuber KSI – who will fight American personality Alex Wassabi at the O2 on August 27 – slammed the PPV price in a series of Twitter posts on Monday night.
Paul even decided to get involved in the conversation with several replies, with one suggesting KSI shouldn't even be charging more than $10 for his upcoming clash against Wassabi.
Here's a thread of what went down overnight.

No shit dummy. You have one “win”. I have five. Coming off of KO of the year.— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) July 26, 2022
You’re fighting an influencer. I’m fighting a 12-1 legit boxer. We are not the same. You shouldn’t charge more than $10🤣 https://t.co/exqKZwzSHT
Can’t wait till I get more PPVs fighting an “influencer”.— ksi (@KSI) July 26, 2022
You’re right, we are not the same.
Soon you will be begging to fight me, mark my words 😂😂. https://t.co/CaPbn60GYL
Don’t think we don’t see how desperate this looks 😂😂😂😂.— ksi (@KSI) July 26, 2022
No one cares, so you gotta pay to create hype lmao https://t.co/RVrsTQfzHs
Na you still don’t get it.— ksi (@KSI) July 26, 2022
You didn’t care about the platform that made you who you are. Constantly denouncing it.
I never did. I’m happy to say I’m a YouTuber to this day because now I can do/be whatever I want.
I’m thinking long term my guy. You failed at this. https://t.co/8E5Qvw4WKj

"It's not easy [to make a fight happen], especially not with JJ [KSI]," Chilvers told the Happy Hour Podcast. "Although if he said 'I want to fight someone', I'm sure we'd make it happen. But it has to be right for him.
"And people say 'will he fight Jake Paul?' - he absolutely wants to fight Jake Paul - but not until he is ready. He's several fights behind Jake, he's not stupid.
"Like with Logan, best team, best location, best team house, lovely place in Vegas, everything has to be perfect to give him the best possible chance without any distraction.
"That means he has to prepare again for Jake Paul and if that takes a bit longer, it takes a bit longer."
