Jake Paul is eager to show the world he’s looking to become more than a celebrity boxer this weekend, by entering the ring with UFC veteran and Olympic wrestler Ben Askren. The two will face off in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta today alongside a star-studded entertainment line-up all put together by Triller Network and Emmy winning director and producer Bert Marcus. We’re showing you how to watch a Jake Paul vs Ben Askren live stream anywhere in world right now, as well as when you can catch the big fight and how much it’ll cost you.
While many are keen to watch a YouTuber attempt to take on an MMA pro, Paul is adamant that boxing is no longer a novelty for him. Despite the fact that he’s entered the boxing space in an outlandish manner, opting for big high profile fights instead of working up the ladder, the Disney channel star is looking to cement his position in the arena with this bout.
Jake Paul has only fought two professional boxing matches before this matchup, albeit novelty one-offs. That said, he’s performed well in each encounter – taking out YouTuber Ali Eson Gib in January last year and going on to KO former NBA player Nate Robinson a few months later.
Paul’s reputation certainly isn’t the only reason to tune in on Saturday night, though. Music fans are looking to the star-studded lineup for their evening’s entertainment, with the Snoop Dogg, Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Doja Cat, Saweetie, Diplo and Major Lazer lighting up the bill. That’s not all, though, Saturday’s fight will also see the first appearance of hip hop super-group Mt Westmore, featuring Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Too $hort and E-40.
