However, several fans and netizens want ‘Funky’ to be victorious and have thoroughly expressed their ill-feeling over Jake Paul. While Askren and ‘The Problem Child’ are a few hours away from fighting each other, the Internet community has continued to share their opinion.

Traditional boxing fans have expressed disgust over the Paul brothers ever since their entry into the sport. While ‘The Problem Child’ will face a pro fighter for the first time, many have billed Askren to represent the MMA and the fighting community in general.

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren

The eight rounds cruiserweight headliner can either finish in a flash or go to the last bell. Both Jake Paul and Ben Askren are stylistically different and have different experiences and skill-sets in combat. So, it’s hard to picture a possible outcome of their fight.

It opens up the door to several possibilities, but as the experienced boxer, Jake Paul might be the favorite. Despite having all the experience in his corner, ‘Funky’ Askren is not a reputed striker. So, the 24-year-old YouTuber boxer will have a legitimate chance of advancing himself to 3-0.

But Ben Askren is familiar with taking punishment and has lost only twice in twenty-one fights. The former UFC star has several well-wishers, and if he has undergone a proper fight camp, ‘Funky’ Askren has the chance to shock the world tonight.
