Showtime, which will broadcast the card on pay-per-view, also announced Monday that Amanda Serrano will defend her WBC and WBO featherweight titles against super bantamweight champ Yamileth Mercado.

Paul, a YouTube sensation and boxing neophyte, guns for a 4-0 start against Woodley, 39, who left the Ultimate Fighting Championship on a four-fight losing streak. The bout will be Woodley’s pro boxing debut. He is a former UFC and Strikeforce welterweight champion.

Paul, 24, improved to 3-0 after defeating Ben Askren in the headliner of Triller Fight Club’s April PPV event. Woodley, in fact, was in Askren’s corner for the bout.
