Paul and Woodley, 24 and 39 respectively, will lock horns with one another on August 28.
The blue touch paper for their fight was lit moments before Paul's demolition of Woodley's good friend Ben Askren in April.
The pair were involved in a heated back-and-forth in the dressing room that left Woodley fuming.
And their subsequent back-and-forth on social media has teed up the interesting grudge match, which, on paper, is the toughest fight of Paul's young boxing career.
Here's everything you need to know about the pair's upcoming clash:
What date is Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley?

The Fight Capital of the World – Las Vegas – is also in consideration.
What channel is the fight on?
A UK broadcaster has yet to pick up the rights for Paul vs Woodley.

What have they said?
Paul said of the former UFC star: “He’s a good striker. He’s known for knocking people out. But I think when I beat Tyron, people have to put respect on my name.
“But that’s not what I’m here for, to be honest. I already know how good I am. I know that this is going to be another easy fight.
"That’s why Showtime is in business with me. You’re looking at the future of boxing.”
Woodley said of his clash with the social media star: "Easiest fight of my career & biggest purse of my career all in one night.
"Basically, they brought me in to take out the trash. Can't wait to shut this b***h up.
"This is getting done for the culture, the whole MMA/boxing community, to rid this guy of combat sports.”
