That said, Logan Paul has already previewed the fight and has predictably favored his bother to claim another stoppage win. While Jake Paul has also vowed to do the same several times, ‘The Maverick’ might have just reminded fans about it. ESNEWS posted a video where Logan and BJ Flores seemingly expressed their support for Jake Paul.

Logan Paul said, “Same as you BJ, I am gonna go with three rounds, under three rounds.”

Meanwhile, Ben Askren has reflected a similar frame of mind ahead of the fight. Despite having no experience in pro boxing, he has appeared confident about winning the bout. Being a former MMA world champion and an Olympic wrestler, Askren surely has achieved way more than Jake Paul in the combat community.

But boxing is a wholly unique entity and with no experience, he can possibly fall prey to the 2-0 pro boxer. Jake Paul has attained both wins via KOs and will look to add to his tally in Atlanta.

The bizarre matchup came out of nowhere when Jake Paul began taking shots at several UFC stars after his win against Nate Robinson in November. While ‘The Problem Child’ initially appeared interested in fighting Conor McGregor, his fate saw Ben Askren take the step up.
