Jake Paul vs Ben Askren undercard: ‘Quick Draw’ vs ‘Action Jackson’

7-0 as a professional, Quinton Randall staged his debut in 2019 and appeared six times in the same year, winning all six fights. He had similar intentions in 2020, but had to put a quell on those plans for the COVID-19 outbreak. In October, last year, Randal secured a unanimous win over Jan Carlos Rivera before finalizing the fight against Jackson.

Moreover, the Texas native will have a 2” inch advantage in height, before locking horns with his orthodox rival. As they share a similar boxing style, both men can either land flush or comfortably take the battle to the final bell.

However, William Jackson had a short-lived career from 2008 to 2017. He showcased prominence in the initial stage and went 10-0-1, before suffering back-to-back losses against Johnny Garcia and Doland Ward in 2011 and 2013.

He returned to the win column with victories against Chris Rudd and Larry Venris in 2014, but went silent for three years. ‘Action’ Jackson’ came back in 2017 against Tre’Sean Wiggins and won the fight.

Although he can put his experience to use, he will have to rust off long inactivity before going against Randall. So, he might have very minor chances of beating the unbeaten welterweight prodigy.

Prediction:- Quinton Randall defeats William Jackson (via decision)
