Jake Paul vs Ben Askren is the latest in a recent trend of celebrity-esque combat sports events that have been gathering decent interest. If you’re unsure, Paul is a wealthy YouTube celebrity who has shown some ability in the ring and likes to call out big-name opponents.
In his latest fight, he is taking on Askren in an event also called Triller Fight Club. Askren is a former Olympic wrestler and UFC competitor who has made the crossover to boxing. The 36-year-old is making his debut in that sport here. He has spent only three months preparing for this cruiserweight bout. Askren retired from the UFC in 2019.
Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir will also make his boxing debut in an earlier fight.
The card is due to start at 9pm ET on Saturday 17 April at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The main fight should start around 1am ET.
The official pay-per-view provider of this event is streaming site FITE.TV. Combat sports site FITE.TV is the official platform to Triller Fight Night. In Canada it will set you back US$39.99.
FITE.TV also has a number of subscription options available if you want to access it longer term, including FITE+, Impact Plus and Honor Club. They come with varying features and some have a free trial.
But note this event is not available with any subscription, you need to access the PPV. You can check out all the details in our complete breakdown of FITE TV. FITE.TV was also the exclusive broadcaster in Canada of the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr fight.
Paul has been in the news for the wrong reasons this week after being accused of sexual assault by TikTok sensation Justine Paradise. Paul, 24, has denied the allegations through his lawyer and has vowed to pursue legal action.
In the ring he has fought twice professionally to date, winning both by knockout. Last November he scored a second-round KO victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson. Paul featured on the undercard to Tyson’s fight with Jones Jr.
Askren chose to pursue this new challenge after having major hip surgery, knowing that donning the boxing gloves would be less stressful on his body.
It’s a tricky fight to call considering Paul has beat up on a fellow YouTuber in Ali Eson Gib and former NBA star Robinson. But he’s a big, strong youngster who at least has the experience of getting in the ring professionally.
Despite his mixed martial arts background, Askren does not have the reputation of being a good striker. His fight with Jorge Masvidal at UFC 239 in 2019 was over in seconds after Askren was knocked out cold with a flying knee. We’re tipping Paul will counter-attack Askren’s unconvincing boxing technique to win in a points decision.
