Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren matches all the details and highlights of the fight
Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren: Jake Paul, who has never fought a professional boxer, now owns a knockout victory over a professional fighter. He stopped a former MMA world champion in less than two minutes. In the main event clash from inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Paul scored a first-round TKO against Askren.
Paul hit Askren’s head and body so quickly that he couldn’t find a way inside. In a successful mixed martial arts career, the fighter who was never known for being a puncher couldn’t find a way against the younger, faster Paul.
Seeing the techniques used by Jake Paul, it felt like the match was going to get dirtier. But what happened next was a big surprise for the audience. A smashing overhand from Paul sent Askren straight to the ground. Even after beating the count, Asken was unable to continue the fight. The referee called off the fight at the 1:59 mark of Round 1.
The replay showed the same thing when Askren protested the stoppage. The referee asked Askren to step forward, but instead he side-walked backstage with a smile.
Later, after the match, Paul said: “I wasn’t nervous. In MMA, I was always chasing either defending a world title, I was just having a fun boxing match today anyway. If it turned out great, then it’s great. But if it turned out to be shit then my life is the same. So there was no kind of nervousness.”
Paul said that he has been in training camp for 4 months every day and that he really deserves the win. Paul has done everything possible to start his boxing career. Although he still needs to prove that he can compete against a trained boxer. Paul turned pro after defeating Ben Askren
in the first round by technical knockout.
Now, after defeating Askren, the only thing that remains to be seen is whether Paul will be able to establish himself as a legitimate fighter or decide to continue on the path that has been undeniably successful financially.
