Where To Bet Ben Askren vs Jake Paul

Graeme

It was confirmed in January that the next fight YouTube personality Jake Paul will have, will be against ex UFC fighter Ben Askren.

The fight will take place on April 17th, and it will be an 8 round fight.

Ben Askren went viral a couple of times in his brief stint in the UFC career, and one of them was relevant to this fight. The first time of course was his brutal knockout to Jorge Masvidal to the flying knee in a whopping 5 seconds. The other time was his loss to Demian Maia when various compilation gifs of Askrens “boxing” made the rounds. I’m a huge Askren fan and I’ll be the first to admit it wasn’t exactly the most technical boxing in the world.

Askren made his name in the MMA world by being one of the most famous non-UFC fighters. He wracked up an 18-0 record before moving onto UFC where he went 1-2. His lone win was over Robbie Lawler.

Askren is more famous for his wrestling than his boxing and has never competed in any official boxing fights. Jake had an amateur fight where he beat Deji. He then turned professional defeating Gib and Nate Robinson, by TKO and KO respectively.

Jake Paul beat Nate Robinson – does that mean he is legit?:

No.

Look Jake has had a lot of training in boxing since the Paul brothers have got into this endeavour. But in that particular fight, Robinson was out there with his hands down practically the entire time. No technical ability and just trying to get the quick KO. He was picked apart. In saying that I think Jake handled that fight well mentally. Never got frustrated. Figured out how Nate was fighting and took advantage of it.

Does Ben Askren have much boxing experience?

I know Ben in the past has said he didn’t really focus too much on boxing in terms of MMA. No reason to when his wrestling was that good honestly. However he still would have did a hell of a lot of training regardless when it comes to boxing, and striking in general.

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren Betting Strategy:

The money has came in to the point that the odds have changed and Jake Paul is bettable. You have to realize that Paul is still at the beginning of his boxing career – he wants to make a lot more money from this and gain more fame from it and wins help that. He clearly has chosen Askren because he believes he can beat him.

I wouldn’t have advised it before but now I say Jake Paul has a lot of value at -150.
