The latest sideshow sexiest in boxing is ready for her close-up. While the days of watching reality TV and former child stars in the ring are apparently gone, YouTube and TikTok stars have taken the mantle with high levels of success. The next iteration comes Saturday night in Atlanta when Jake Paul faces off with former UFC fighter and welterweight champion Ben Askren at Triller Fight Club (9 p.m. ET, pay-per-view).



"It's a dangerous sport," Paul said during the event's media day.


"That's why, when people question my dedication to it, it's like I turn up every day. I put my mental health on the line, my sanity on the line. Like I said, I went and got brain scans and showed early signs of CTE"


Despite all the hype and hunting, Paul actually showed decent skill in his first two appearances. Although he was up against very low levels of competition and not professional fighters, Paul scored a pair of knockouts that spread very quickly. First, he suspended AnEsonGib, a YouTube star, before he brutally attacked former NBA player Nate Robinson last November.






In the meantime, Askren will represent the first opponent with a combat background. Askrin made his name as an impressive wrestler and wrestler. He won world titles in both Bellator MMA and ONE Championship before moving to the UFC. While he won his first match, a pair of untimely defeats forced him to retire while battling a chronic hip injury.


When it ended up not needing a full hip replacement, Askren got into the fight with Paul, returning to the fighting game in one area of ​​his talents where he's always been weaker. If his boxing experience goes well, Askrin thinks he might return to the circus several times.




Askreen said


I'm not going to do three boxing matches a year or anything.” “But, if I call some other dope on YouTube and fight him next year, yes. I won't do 20 of them but I might do two or three more."




Elsewhere on the card, former budding welterweight champion Regis Prograis returns to the co-main event venue when he faces Evan Redkach. Prograis is trying to get back into the title fight at £140 after losing the World Boxing Super Series final to Josh Taylor in 2019. He has bounced back with a resounding knockout in 2020 and will look to build on him here. Redkach, on the other hand, loses to Dani Garcia in January 2020. Prior to that, he had three consecutive wins.
