Who is Jake Paul?
Jake Paul is the brother of Logan Paul. Both are YouTuber online personalities with Paul vs Askren sizeable followings across almost every social media platform. They initially gained popularity on the now-defunct video platform Vine and Jake Paul starred in Bizaardvark, a show on the Disney Channel.
As of late both Paul brothers have become well-known for — bizarrely — boxing. Logan Paul boxed fellow YouTuber KSI to a draw in a ludicrously high-profile amateur boxing match in August 2018. Jake Paul fought KSI’s brother Deji Olatunji on the undercard.
After the bout Jake Paul continued boxing and has fought professionally twice, most recently defeating former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of Mike Tyson’s recent comeback against Roy Jones Jr.
Since that contest, Jake Paul has been going back and forth with multiple MMA fighters, including Conor McGregor and his training partner Dillon Danis, but ultimately he’s set up a boxing match against retired UFC fighter Ben Askren.
Who is Ben Askren?
Ben Askren is probably most famous for being violently KO’d by UFC superstar Jorge Masvidal in five seconds, but before that he was Paul vs Askren undefeated fighter and considered among the most effective wrestlers in MMA.
- After an incredibly successful amateur wrestling career,
- Askren became a world champion in two organizations,
- Bellator and One FC. He made a UFC run at the end of his career,
- but by then was carrying a number of chronic long-term injuries.
- He ultimately retired as a result of those injuries.
Who is the betting favorite?
- Oddsmakers have Paul listed as -225 better favorite with Askren at +175.
- This makes perfect sense. While this fight is an unknown quantity,
- Askren was never considered a good striker in MMA.
- His whole game was set up around his grinding wrestling and brutal ground and pound strike.
- When the fight remains to stand, Askren, tends to look sluggish and limited.
- Jake Paul, whilst inexperienced,
- has more professional boxing experience than Askren and hasn’t lost a boxing match yet.
That being said, Askren is a former professional fighter with a 19-2 record and wins against world-class competition. Jake Paul is 2-0 against less experienced opposition.
