Ben Askren or Jake Paul: Who will win?

Both Askren and Paul are not much accustomed to boxing. However, Paul has some experience in the realm of boxing, while Ben will play his debut boxing battle.

Considering the career facts, Ben has much more experience in combat sports as he is a former UFC fighter and wrestler. On the other hand, Paul fought two boxing matches against NBA player and YouTuber AnEsonGib. However, those bouts are not considered a real boxing fight as both of the opponents were amateur.

With no prior experience in the domain, Ben Askren chose the legendary boxing coach, Freddie Roach as his trainer. It seems Askren is serious about the bout.

Considering the professional career and fighting experience, the former Bellator champion Askren will certainly have an advantage over Jake Paul.
