As of late, each Paul brothers have change into well-known for bizarrely — boxing. Logan Paul boxed fellow YouTuber KSI to attract a ludicrously excessive-profile novice boxing match in August 2018. Jake Paul fought KSI's brother Deji Olatunji on the undercard.

After the bout, Jake Paul continued boxing and has fought professionally twice, most just lately defeating former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of Mike Tyson's latest comeback in opposition to Roy Jones Jr.

Who's the betting favourite?

Oddsmakers have Paul listed as -225 higher favourite with Askren at +175.

This makes good sense. Whereas this struggle is an unknown amount, Askren was by no means thought-about a superb striker in MMA. His complete recreation was arranged around his grinding wrestling and brutal floor and pound strikes. When the struggle stays standing, Askren tends to look sluggish and restricted. Jake Paul, while inexperienced, has extra skilled boxing expertise than Askren and hasn't misplaced a boxing match but.

That being stated, Askren is a former skilled fighter with a 19-2 report and wins in opposition to world-class competitors. Jake Paul is 2-0 in opposition to much less skilled opposition.

Press conference

Triller held a Conor McGregor-esque press conference over the weekend, allowing Jake Paul and Ben Askren to go at each other. At one point Paul played a message from Jorge Masvidal for Askren, News Combo cites.

It ended up in a comical staredown where Ben Askren sort of casually palmed Paul's face and Paul responded by throwing the weirdest pulled punch I've ever seen. Solid preview for how this fight is going to play out? Possibly.
