And those looking to attend the event can purchase tickets to do so now, with tickets starting at $10 now available at RocketMortgageFieldHouse.com.

Natives of Westlake, Ohio, Paul and his brother, fellow YouTube star Logan Paul, have made names for themselves over the course of the past year with their celebrity boxing exhibitions. During the undercard of last fall's exhibition between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr., Jake knocked out former NBA guard Nate Robinson in viral fashion before earning a TKO victory over UFC fighter Ben Askren this past April.

The emergence of Jake and Logan -- the latter of which recently fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a five-round exhibition without a declared winner -- has led to big pay-per-view numbers and led many to consider the future of boxing and sports entertainment. During a press conference to promote his fight against Woodley, Paul discussed the attention his newfound career in the fight game has attracted.

"There's always been pressure on me in my entire career. Millions of people want to see Jake Paul lose, because I'm that polarizing, villainizing figure. The pressure of being here in my hometown with friends and family watching. It adds to the pressure. But pressure creates diamonds and it's pushed me to the best version of myself," Paul said during the press conference at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.
