Jake Paul vs Andre August: Fight time tonight, undercard, latest odds, prediction and ring walks

The latest chapter in Jake Paul's boxing ring tale comes tonight as Andre August faces the YouTube brawler in Florida.

'The Problem Child' will be confident of ending a reasonably mixed 2023 on a high, having started the year by suffering defeat in Saudi Arabia to Tommy Fury to hand him a first career defeat.


The 26-year-old, however, then eased to a points victory over former UFC star Nate Diaz in August to get back on track, and now squares off against a boxer in the form of cruiserweight August.

The American is 10-1-1 as a professional, but has fought just once in the last four years and the 35-year-old is yet to make a name for himself in the sport.

A win on Friday night would be a big surprise, with Paul a strong favourite to move to 8-1 and set up a rematch with Fury in 2024 or a much-hyped showdown with KSI.

Despite his defeat by Fury, and the fact that his wins have come against a succession of MMA fighters, Paul remains adamant that he will one day become a world champion.

"I possess the talent, hard work, skill set, all the attributes of a world champion, so I am that already and I'm willing and manifesting the rest into existence to become the world champion," he said.

In the co-main event, Shadasia Green takes on Franchon Crews-Dezurn for the vacant women's WBC super-middleweight title.

British fighter Savannah Marshall had held the belt, after beating Crews-Dezurn earlier this year, but injury means she has been made champion in recess and will get a chance to fight for the title when she is fit again.

Jake Paul vs Andre August prediction

It is scheduled to be an eight-round contest on Friday night, and it would be no surprise if all 24 minutes are required.

Paul's bouts against Anderson Silva and Diaz both went to the cards and he is not one to take significant risks in the ring, particularly when facing those stepping into boxing for the first time.

August is at least experienced in the sport and should be able to be more competitive than some of Paul's previous opponents, but there is little on his resume to suggest that he poses a significant threat. His last four bouts have gone the distance, despite the limited opposition.

Paul has repeatedly insisted in the build-up to this fight that he has little interest in promoting it, instead suggesting he is just using the event to build his experience, and it all points to a relatively low-key affair.

As seen against Fury, Paul will have problems when he faces bigger tests, but he should have enough to end 2023 on a winning note.
