‘The Maverick’ hosted his brother Jake Paul in a recent episode of the IMPAULSIVE podcast and talked about several aspects of the nearing fight. Hence, ‘The Problem Child’ can focus on those aspects and secure a minor advantage over ‘Funky’.

Logan Paul said, “Ben does have a chin, and a head. Most, not all. But Ben’s head is abnormally large. I noticed. Like, I wish my head was that big.”

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren- Who has the better chance?

Ben Askren has never competed in a professional boxing bout. Meanwhile, he has been an Olympic wrestler and a world champion MMA fighter who went undefeated for almost a decade in his fighting career. So, he clearly has more accolades than Paul on paper.

The 24-year-old youngster is energetic and can land the punches. So, he will enjoy his fair share of chances in winning against a debutant boxer in Ben Askren.
