Paul, who is entering his fourth professional fight, will appear in front of thousands of fans in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, when he takes to ring at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.
But the 24-year-old could have a hard time of it, especially when coming to blows with a decorated mixed martial artist such as Woodley, who is destined for UFC Hall of Fame immortality.
So far during his short stint as a professional boxer, Paul has beaten the likes of former NBA star Nate Robinson and fellow YouTuber Ali Loui Al-Fakhri, better known as AnEsonGib - both inexperienced fighters, to say the very least.
Paul, however, comes off the back of a sensational first-round knockout win over former MMA fighter Ben Askren, a longtime friend and teammate of Woodley. This weekend’s fight is also another huge opportunity for Woodley, a former UFC Welterweight Champion, to try his luck at boxing - especially after his release from the company.
Unlike the Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather exhibition fight, this bout will be sanctioned. That means there will be fairly standard rules of eight rounds, 20x20 ring size and 10-ounce gloves.
This weekend’s event is a cruiserweight bout - normally a 200-pound limit - but both fighters are expected to be weigh in at around 190 pounds.
For most of his career, Woodley fought as a 170-pound welterweight, but will most likely tip the scales at 190 pounds and will not have to cut weight for this bout.
In terms of height, Paul will have a two-inch reach edge, as well as a slight size advantage at 6ft 1in compared to Woodley who stands at 5ft 9in.
