Jake Paul promises to knocking Ben Askren in “six minutes!”

Despite the fact that Paul only has two professional boxing matches, the YouTuber is confident he will finish Askren early on Saturday.

“I don’t care about it, to say the least. It doesn’t really matter to me what he’s doing, and that is sort of my point, I don’t care what Ben Askren is doing. I don’t care about what Ben Askren does on April 17, I don’t care what his game plan is, I don’t care about his skills. Anything that he does, I will have an answer to. I’ve sparred against better fighters than him this whole entire camp.

“Every single person that I’ve sparred in this camp is better than Ben Askren and quite literally, April 17 will be the easiest ‘training session’ for the whole entire camp. Every single day of this camp will be harder than what the actual fight night is,” Paul continued. “I’m going to go in there and fight someone who is a lesser opponent than all these guys I’ve sparred. I’m going to drop him in six minutes or less and I’m going to f*****g walk out of the arena and that’s that.”

Ben Askren and Jake Paul have traded trash talk for the better part of six months after Paul made waves with his thunderous knockout of Nate Robinson in November. Now Askren, never known as a big puncher, will step into the boxing ring for the first time since announcing his MMA retirement in 2019.

However The card takes place at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. This will mark the third major city that Paul fights in, as he has already checked Miami and Los Angeles off his list. Askren has never fought in Atlanta.
