    Jake Paul, the internet personality turned pro boxer, has his next fight set, and this time he'll be competing against an actual professional fighter.

    Paul will face former UFC fighter Ben Askren in an eight-round pro boxing match on April 17, Triller co-founder Ryan Kavanaugh told ESPN.


    Ben's striking is terrible, Jake is still untested as he fought two random YouTubers. I hope Jake gets knocked out for all his disrespect.

    Askren can´t punch for ****. His striking is abysmal.

    Paul is knocking him the **** out.

    Paul actually has been training in boxing for years now. Askren is an old dude who never gave a **** about his striking.

    Unfortunately I think Askren's striking will make the world of mma look stupid when he loses to a youtube idiot.

    Gonna be watching a casual soccer player humiliate a shot to **** basketball player. A basketball player who once or twice has kicked a ball.

    I will go with Paul in 2. This fight is a joke given Askren's abysmal striking and recent surgery.

    Paul has the better boxing skills. Askren, without his opponent having to worry about getting taken down is a sitting duck.

    People highly overrate what mma fighters can do in boxing anyway. You got about 5 mma fighters that would even be 50% amatuer boxers. Meaning they win 5 of 10 fights. Pros i know of 1 who can be a successful pro boxer maybe 2. Jake paul brings alot of money to the gyms he trains at. His trainer is making 10%. Hes getting an opportunity to work and spar high level boxers who arent gonna take his head off. If he was an average white dude at mayweathers.......lol. hed be getting stopped at mayweathers or bones adams gyms every sparring session. Dont underestimate paul vs these mma guys.

    It's ridiculous to expect MMA guys tonbe on par with pro boxers.
    Boxers train one thing and one thing only.
    MMA is a LOT of diciplines. Hell, it's constantly evolving. Every year there seems to be a new OP technique.

    I have a bad feeling Askren is going to make the MMA community look a laughing stock in this fight.

    Superb wrestler but his striking leaves A LOT to be desired.
