He then took a dig at ‘Funky’ by saying that he’s eating Oreos and thus, it would be a first-round knockout come April 17. This showed Paul’s confidence in his ability to knock out Askren faster than he knocked out Nate Robinson.

Does Jake Paul have the strength to knock out Ben Askren?

The Paul-Askren fight has divided opinion among combat sports fans. Many suggest that Paul will knock out the former MMA champion easily, while others think Askren’s combat sports experience will be the defining factor. So does Paul have knockout power?

‘The Problem Child’ has had only two professional fights. However, he has won both bouts through knockouts. In addition, his first victory was a first-round TKO, while his second was a vicious second-round knockout. Therefore, the power is evident.

However, both his opponents had no combat sports background. Askren comes with heaps of experience in the octagon. In addition, he has survived a barrage of punches from fighters with 4 oz gloves. Therefore, his chin should be better than Paul’s previous opponents.

Moreover, Paul is an entertainer by profession. Therefore, this could be another way for him to get into Askren’s head. The authenticity of the truck pull will come under scrutiny, given how hard it is to achieve something like that.

What do you make of Jake Paul’s video? Do you think he really has the strength to pull a truck?
