    Paulie didn't even throw punches for 3 rounds, bro. Come on

      Ben Askren is world class athlete in combat sports.

      Jake Paul is a YouTube celeb who has a couple years of boxing training and has knocked out 2 people with zero experience in combat sports.

        Should be interesting. This is why they fight the fights.

            Interesting, because Askren truly looks awful when fighting. But, if he really does hit from his core then he'll have the power game over Paul. I think engaging you core in boxing is something that takes a few years to learn and, even then, many inexperienced fighters are likely to resort to bad habits when the pressure of a televised fight is there.

              True. Didn't Roach inherit a lot of his champions? IDK if he's ever built a champ from the ground up so to speak. A lot of those guys were champs before he got to them. I don't think he's a bad trainer, but yeah might be a tad overrated. And he's old now on top of that.

                WOW!!! And this guy was a MMA champion?! WOW!! These cage-fighters are awful, how is it possible that a professional athlete ( and one that competes in combat sports ) is the underdog to a social-media influencer? I would be embarrassed to be a MMA fan right now, that sport is a joke.
                loooool

                that hurts my heart

                But in all seriousness, Askren is hardly the greatest representative. He got away with basically no standup in One FC but thats a lesser promotion. The fact was highlighted when he lost 2 of his 3 UFC fights and scraped the other.

                  I have no basis to evaluate this fight. Have heard valid points for both opponents. Its not what I would call a "toss up" so much as a situation where one set of factors will probably prove to be of the most importance. One guy is bigger, stronger, perhaps more determined, and has stand up skills that are more in parity with the rules (boxing). They other guy is a professional athlete, with crude striking skills, but experience. AS far as physical shape, MMA guy is not too heavy, so I do not think he is in bad shape. Many people who can punch do not look the part... Fury for example.

                  So it should become apparent relatively fast, which factors are in play here.
