Jake Paul’s boxing occupation goes on growing, and also now he has his fastest win yet.
The YouTube star defeated UFC boxer Ben Askren by knockout in the preliminary of a Triller Fight Club event on Saturday, outlining the mixed martial artist with an appropriate hard rook.
Askren managed to get to his feet, but referee Brian Stutts decided to end the battle despite Askren pleading his instance. The action was called a bit greater than a minute before the first round finished.
Paul was the aggressor for virtually the entire round, with Askren touchdown few, if any, kind of punches. Paul committed the win to his security guard Shadow, who passed away ten days prior.
” I was worthy of that s ***,” Paul said after the suit. “This is the craziest minute of my life. I informed y’ all I was going to do it in the first round. I informed y’ all I’m a real competitor. I don’t understand the number of times I got to prove myself that this is genuine.”
” This has been the hardest ten days of my life. I have needed to hold it together to maintain this battle going. I’m recognized to be right here.”
The success improves Paul’s professional boxing document to 3-0, with his previous wins coming against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and former NBA gamer Nate Robinson. Askren opens up, and likely closes, his boxing career with a loss yet comes away with a major payday.
Paul went into the suit as a strong favourite versus the 36-year-old Askren, that holds a 19-2-1 record in combined martial arts; however, he was always referred to as a fumbling professional instead of a striker.
Who will Jake Paul fight following?
The concern currently is whom will certainly Jake Paul rely on next in his quest to be taken seriously as a boxer. A spell versus real, energetic fighter most likely remains out of the question.
As Paul said previously this week, Conor McGregor is the heavyweight thrown around this week that he was closer to a fight against the most important name in Mixed Martial Arts than individuals may assume. If not, other MMA boxers are currently offering a shot at a Jake Paul cash advance.

-” Tonight, we have around between Ben Askren– I do not know who that is, still, and also I’ve read up on him all week– and Jake Paul. They both draw, but a minimum of somebody’s going to obtain injured.”
