To round out this Friday’s Blitz we have the top games from the MLB and Quarterfinal action of the Little League World Series plus one of the hardest trivias we have had in a while, so good luck!!

    The Jake Paul Show, Episode 4

    Sunday: Jake Paul (3-0) vs. Tyron Woodley (0-0 boxing, 19-7-1 MMA) 11:00pm ET Showtime PPV

    The latest ‘celebrity’ boxing match takes place this weekend in an 8-round cruiserweight fight at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, OH – Paul’s hometown
    Social media influencer Jake Paul continues to try and legitimize himself as a real professional boxer against former UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley
    Paul is currently a perfectly undefeated pro boxer with three wins against fellow YouTuber Deji Olatunji, former NBA star Nate Robinson and most recently against retired UFC veteran Ben Askren
    Tyron Woodley, who is a long-time personal friend of Askren, would be a big step towards legitimization for Paul as he was known for his striking abilities which could parlay well into boxing despite his age at 39 years old for his boxing debut
    Woodley broke onto the UFC scene with his epic first round KO of legend Robbie Lawler to earn the championship title in 2016 which he would go on to defend four times with a total career record of 19 wins (7 KO) and just seven losses
    Odds: Paul -190, Woodley +160
    The rest of the card is fairly impressive with Amanda Serrano looking to defend her three featherweight titles against Yamileth Mercado. Up-and-coming heavyweight prospect Daniel Dubois will take on Joe Cusumano and the card is rounded out by another celebrity attraction with Tommy Fury (Tyson the Gypsie King’s younger brother who is most famous for UK reality TV show stints) taking on MMA fighter Anthony Taylor.

    Ultimate Fighter Finale – Preview

    Saturday, ESPN @ 10:00pm ET: The Ultimate Fighter is the UFC’s reality TV show that is extremely popular amongst fight fans, and after 12 episodes we have arrived at the finale that will take place during UFC Fight Night – we will support anything Dana White ever does being such a loyal subscriber

    Middleweight: Bryan Battle (6-1) vs. Gilbert Urbina (6-2)

    After being the last pick of Team Volkanovski, Battle shocked the world by even making the final and looks to win that guaranteed UFC six-figure contract
    Urbina will look to be aggressive on the feet and put Battle on the back foot, but has to be warry to not get caught on the feet as he did in the last round – Urbina is replacing the injured Tresean Gore who KO’d Urbina in the Semifinals
    Odds: Battle -170, Urbina +150
    Bantamweight: Ricky Turcios (11-2) vs. Brady Hiestand (6-1)

    Turcios is the more experienced fighter at 28 years old and also fought on Dana White’s Contender Series in 2017
    22-year-old Hiestand by contrast is the youngest competitor on TUF 29 and will want to get this fight to the ground as he has five wins by submission over his 10 amateur and professional victories
    Odds: Turcios -155, Hiestand +135
