Jake Paul vs Andre August live stream: How to watch boxing online today, card, start time, stats. Fed up of not being taken seriously as a real boxer, YouTube star Jake Paul is attempting to set the record straight at the Caribe Royale resort in Orlando today as he goes toe-to-toe with Texan cruiserweight Andre August. With coverage across the world on the DAZN streaming platform, we'll explain in this article how to watch Jake Paul vs Andre August live streams from anywhere.
Paul — who weighed at a career-high 199.4 lbs — is eschewing the big PPV purse and headline-grabbing opponents for this fight, with a determination to prove to the pundits that he truly belongs in the squared circle.
The criticism only grew further when he lost his only career fight to date against a 'proper' boxer back in February, losing a bad-blooded encounter with Tommy Fury in Saudi Arabia. But, in fairness to Paul, it was only his seventh professional fight and he managed to knock Fury over before losing by the finest of margins on a split decision.
The Problem Child bounced back six months later to beat former UFC star Nate Diaz by unanimous decision and now has his sights firmly set on cementing his place as a genuine boxing force to be reckoned with in the pro ranks.
The man standing in front of him tonight will be Andre August, with his own motivations for taking on Paul. The little known 35-year-old Texan enters his 13th career fight with the opportunity to make a mark on the boxing map. His only defeat came all the way back in 2018, and he comes into Orlando on a five-win streak.
The fight comes only a matter of a few weeks after Jake's brother, Logan Paul, won his first professional wrestling title in the WWE. With the help of a pair of brass knuckles, he overcame Rey Mysterio at the company's Crown Jewel event on Nov. 4 to seal the United States Championship.

'The Problem Child' is hoping to end a mixed 2023 on a high. A much-anticipated grudge match against Tommy Fury ended in defeat at the start of the year but he has since bounced back by easing to a points victory over long-running rival and former UFC star Nate Diaz.
August, despite having a relatively low profile in comparison to Paul’s previous two opponents, will offer a stern test.
A professional fighter with a record of 10-1-1 in the cruiserweight division, the 35-year-old does arrive with some decent pedigree, albeit he has fought only once during the last four years.

For only the second time in his professional boxing career, Jake Paul is taking on an actual pro boxer. Andre August isn’t a household name, but the veteran has carved out a career in the ring and is under no illusion that this stands to be the biggest bout of his career by some distance.
A pro for a decade, the 35-year-old Texas native has never challenged for a major belt. Instead, his most notable accolade to date was the Lone Star State’s Combative Sports Program light heavyweight title in 2019.
August, who holds a record of 10-1-1 (5 KOs), has said in the buildup to the fight that he has a lot of respect for his celebrity opponent and aims to make his name from this contest.
26-year-old Paul hand-picked August in an effort to prove his sincerity and willingness to work his way up through the ranks in the proper manner. His only previous fight against a professional ended in a split decision defeat to Tommy Fury in February, though his conduct was praised by his opponent, who was left less than impressed with KSI.
Having bounced back by overcoming MMA star Nate Diaz in August, Paul now holds a record of 7-1 (4 KOs), and this clash will be his third of the year. The cruiserweight contest will play out over eight rounds and headlines an eight-fight card at the Caribe Royale Orlando in Orlando, Florida.
Paul continues his foray into boxing on Friday night with a matchup against Andre August, a professional boxer with 12 fights to his name and little recognition. While Paul has made his name (and money) in combat sports by taking out former UFC champions, celebrities and a former NBA dunk champion, he'll be taking on a more serious opponent in Orlando, Florida.
Paul is still the favorite. He's shown that he's more than just a sideshow in his eight professional boxing bouts. He most recently defeated Nate Diaz via unanimous decision and took Tommy Fury to a split-decision in his only loss in the ring.
August is a 35-year-old cruiserweight who has 12 fights on his 10-1-1 record, but those opponents haven't exactly been a murderer's row. A quick perusal of his BoxRec page reveals that those 10 wins include a lot of fighters with five or fewer fights and a win over Jeremie Parks, who has a 6-25-3 record as a professional.
Paul has always been strategic in choosing his opponents. He's nothing if not a smart promoter of himself. Being able to sell August as a real opponent because of his record against questionable competition can help him build momentum toward bigger fights.
