YouTuber Jake Paul Officially Set To Box Former UFC Fighter

Youtuber Jake Paul has made a name for himself in the world of boxing after knocking out former NBA player Nate Robinson in a boxing match in November 2020.

But after months of calling out former UFC fighter Conor McGregor, Jake Paul has actually landed a fight with another UFC star, Ben Askren, who retired from the sport in 2019.

I promise I will knock out Ben Askren (Napolean Dynamite) inside the first round and add him to the meme collection. Jake Paul

Arsken, 36, is a former UFC fighter who ended his career with a professional fighting record of 19-2.

Now he's back and is confident he can take on the 24-year-old YouTube star. 

Paul has faced criticism on his boxing skills due to the fact he has never fought a professional fighter, but he is very confident he will be able to knock out the former UFC fighter.

"Some MMA guys think because they can throw punches they know how to box. I shocked the world when I knockout an NBA superstar athlete, but some people still complained that he's not a real fighter," said Paul, "So now I'm giving the people what they want by taking on a real fighter... After I add Ben to my knockout meme collection, what can anybody say?"

The eight-round pro boxing match is set to take place on April 17 and serve as the main event for the next Triller Fight Club card.
