Boxing Tonight: Jake Paul is back and Sunny Edwards goes Stateside

The boxing weekend start continues tonight and we have a terrific schedule over the coming days – topped by a certain Jake Paul.

The YouTuber turned boxer has become a big deal selling his PPV shows since getting into the ring professionally.

DAZN: Sign up to watch Jake Paul vs August and Rodriguez vs Edwards!

And while the lustre may have dimmed just a little since his first defeat, at the hands of British reality TV star Tommy Fury (of Love Island fame and brother of heavyweight champion Tyson), this latest PPV will still be a major attraction.

The opponent tonight (Friday) will be the 10-1-1 Andre August, with the bout going down in Orlando, Florida.

While Paul vs August might be the biggest promotional deal of the weekend, the best fight might be the flyweight unification in Glendale, Arizona between Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguez and talented Brit Sunny Edwards.
