Ben Askren vs. Jake Paul officially has a location.

The boxing match between the former mixed martial arts champion and YouTube star is set for April 17 and we now know it will be held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Triller pay-per-view event will come with a $49.99 price tag, according to a release.

Askren, a former Bellator and ONE Championship welterweight titleholder, has been documenting his training in the gym for their 8-round, exhibition match.

Paul, meanwhile, is doing part of his training in Florida with UFC star Jorge Masvidal, who nearly decapitated Askren with a flying knee in the now-viral knockout which catapulted Masvidal into superstardom.

In his last appearance inside of the ring, Paul viciously knocked out former NBA Slam Dunk Contest winner Nate Robinson on the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. pay-per-view.

We’ll have to see if he can find the same success against a real fighter.
