While a UK broadcaster or streaming outlet is yet to be announced, Showtime Sports will broadcast the fight in the United States, with a streaming platform available. It’ll cost $59.99 in the United States.
The fighters will pull on 10-ounce gloves with the ring specified at 20×20.
As well as dispatching Askren, Paul defeated YouTuber AnEson Gib and basketball player Nate Robinson.
The undercard has some British intrigue too, with Tommy Fury and British heavyweight contender Daniel Dubois slated to make their US debuts.
Fury has also been tipped as a future opponent of Paul, with the pair trading verbals on social media in recent years.
While UFC boss Dana White has dismissed Paul as a viable partner for fights in the future, labelling him “f***ing annoying”.
“I just don’t see it happening,” White told the Full Send Podcast. “I don’t hate the kid. Is he f***ing annoying? Yeah, he’s annoying. He’s out there trying to make that money, and his shelf life is very f***ing short.
“Listen, I never say never, but I highly doubt it (working with Paul). It’s just not what I do. There’s a market for that. He could fight a different type of celebrity every week, and there’s going to be a segment of the population that wants to pay for that and see it, but that’s not what I do. I put the best against the best.”
