Jake Paul Vs Ben Askren Undercard: Who's Fighting At Triller Fight Club?

The much-hyped fight between YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC star Ben Askren is coming up this weekend.

Paul is continuing his contentious foray into professional boxing with two wins so far, the last being a victory over ex-NBA player Nate Robinson last year.

In the aftermath of that win, Paul and Askren began their war of words and that evolved into a confirmed fight.

The bout - and the bizarre undercard before it - will take place at the incredible 79,000-seater Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Fight details

Jake Paul and Ben Askren are fighting eight rounds at cruiserweight-level, meaning both fighters can't weigh anything over 200 pounds.

Considering Askren fought at 170lb during his MMA run and was 174lb as a collegiate wrestler, you can expect him to be massively under that limit.

Paul, on the other hand, weighed in at 189lb for his last boxing match.
