Ben Askren and Jake Paul are scheduled to face off in a celebrity boxing fight in April. However, the Funky is positive that he will knock out Paul brutally as he has been practicing diligently for the upcoming fight.
Former MMA champ Askren is returning to the ring after more than 18 months. This time he will fight boxing instead of UFC. However, the 36-year-old never appeared in any boxing game before.
On the other hand, Askren’s opponent, YouTuber Paul, is an amateur boxer who turns to be a pro. Paul already fought two bouts, and he won both of them.
The fight will take place under the Triller Fight Club banner on April 17 and will serve as the main event. However, the location is yet to be announced, and the bout will air on traditional pay-per-view platforms.
Ben Askren posts sparring video footage
The Funkmaster has been posting a series of videos, in which he has seen practicing intensely. Currently, Askren is focused on nothing but boxing. Although Ben is still under the UFC contract, UFC President Dana White permitted him to fight against The Problem Child.
Ben Askren has been posting some serious captions with the videos, which should be a hit for Paul. In his most recent video, Askren wrote, “I’m glad JP didn’t get plowed over pulling that fire truck down hill. Pretty sure I can eat my oreos and still beat up a bum like him.”

However, Paul usually takes these writings or videos as a threat and fires back with more serious notes. In another Twitter video, Ben showed his developing boxing skills. “Ben’s sparring is on point,” Askren wrote. “But the question seems to be: slow motion or real time? Check out the vlog and you decide. On April 17 it’ll be nothing but real time and JP won’t be able to keep up.”

Seemingly Askren’s videos and the comments indicate that the YouTube star will be a rude awakening to life as a fighter.
