Ben Askren vs Jake Paul: The Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Georgia is raring to go today as the seconds tick down to tonight’s Jake Paul vs Ben Askren live stream PPV. The full fight is eight rounds of celebrity-boxing as YouTuber Jake Paul faces ex-UFC fighter Ben Askren, preceded by performances by Snoop Dogg and Justin Bieber.
The star-studded exhibition is a $50 pay-per-view affair in the USA, but it’s less than half that in the UK! Make sure you know how to watch a cheap Jake Paul vs Ben Askren live stream from anywhere in the world.
Disney actor-turned-YouTuber Jake “The Problem Child” Paul has only had a couple of pro fights but he’s favourite to beat Ben “Funky” Askren this weekend. Paul beat YouTuber AnEsonGib in January 2020, then knocked out ex-NBA player Nate Robinson when they clashed on the undercard of the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. exhibition last November.
These MMA guys think because they throw punches they know how to box,” Paul told reporters ahead of the showdown. “I don’t even think he’ll hit me. I haven’t been hit one time in the face in my past two fights… that’s my prediction.”
But former Olympic wrestler, retired UFC fighter, MMA star and Bellator welterweight champ Ben Askren believes Paul lacks experience and will ‘gas out’.
TKO in round seven,” Funky told reporters. “Because I don’t have a huge amount of power. It’ll take me some time to wear him down and make him hate his life.” As you can tell, there’s no love lost between the pair.
Jake Paul vs Ben Askren will be a cruiserweight fight (under 200lbs) in front of a crowd of 100 specially-invited ‘Golden Ticket’ winners. To ramp up the razzmatazz, the four hour Triller Fight Club event will include musical performances from Snoop Dogg (who happens to co-own Triller Fight Club), Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, The Black Keys, Saweetie, Diplo, Major Lazer and the world premiere of hip-hop supergroup Mt. Westmore (Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Too $hort and E-40).
The eccentric undercard features a British millionaire nightclub owner, ex-boxing champ Steve Cunningham (once floored Mike Tyson), ex-UFC champ Frank Mir and promising Brooklyn-based Super Middleweight Junior Younan.
The pay-per-view event will be streamed exclusively on Fite.TV tonight. It’s much cheaper in some countries than in others, so make sure you know how to watch a Jake Paul vs Ben Askren live stream from anywhere.
