Check out Bloody Elbow’s fight week, fight night, and post-fight coverage of this eight-round professional boxing match between social media star Jake Paul (2-0, 2 KOs) and former UFC fighter, ex-Bellator, and ex-ONE champion Ben Askren in what is Askren’s professional boxing debut. Paul’s previous two opponents were fellow social media influence AnEsonGib and retired NBA player Nate Robinson, so this is clearly his biggest step up in competition by default.
The rest of the main card includes former junior welterweight champion Regis Prograis taking on veteran Ivan Redkach, former UFC heavyweight champ Frank Mir taking on ex-cruiserweight king Steve Cunningham (who hasn’t fought since 2017), and musician Reykon against entrepreneur turned boxer Joe Fournier.
In addition to the boxing, there will be special musical performances by Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, Saweetie, The Black Keys, Snoop Dogg’s new supergroup Mt. Westmore, and plenty more from the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
Triller will broadcast the pay-per-view event at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT on Saturday, April 17th.
