Video: Jake Paul brash with Andre August during final faceoff for boxing match

Jake Paul and Andre August brought it up a notch in their final staredown.

The two had an intense face off at Thursday’s ceremonial weigh-ins for MVP’s Most Valuable Prospects IV, which goes down on Friday at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, Fla. Paul was brash and had plenty to say to August, who stood his ground.

Paul (7-1) and August (10-1-1) meet in the main event of MVP’s Most Valuable Prospects IV. The two fight in a cruiserweight contest scheduled for eight rounds.

Paul is coming off a unanimous decision win over Nate Diaz in a 10-round fight this past August, managing to drop the former UFC star in Round 5. The YouTube star-turned-boxer rebounded from his first professional loss earlier this year, a split decision to Tommy Fury last February in Saudi Arabia. Paul has built his resume by defeating ex-UFC stars Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley, Anderson Silva and Diaz.

Currently riding a five-fight winning streak, August is coming off a unanimous decision win over unbeaten Brandon Martin. He has five knockout wins to his name and is expected to be Paul’s sternest test to date.
