Jake Paul believes he will KO Ben Askren in less time Jorge Masvidal did to him.
On April 17, Askren and Paul are set to meet in a pro boxing match. It is a very interesting fight and one that “Funky” has promised will result in him scoring a seventh-round TKO. However, for Paul, he is confident he will get another first-round KO and will do it in under five seconds.
“I started boxing two years ago and I’m still going to knock his ass out faster than [Jorge] Masvidal,” Paul said to ESPN. “These MMA guys think because they throw punches they know how to box. The world complained because I knocked out a basketball player and not a real fighter. So now I’m giving the people what they want by taking on a ‘real fighter.’ After Ben Askren is added to my knockout meme collection, what can anybody say?”
If Jake Paul does end up knocking out Ben Askren in the first-round it would be a massive win for him. The YouTuber is currently 2-0 as a pro boxer with wins over AnEsonGib, a fellow YouTuber, and former NBA player, Nate Robinson. If he can beat “Funky” it would be the biggest win of his career and allow him to call a bigger name out next time.
