Askren has been the perfect foil for Paul at this stage of Paul's career. He's not trying to out-cool him. More like son him. It works. pic.twitter.com/wfMYHj5U2B- Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) March 27, 2021
The 2-0 boxer, accompanied with his large entourage, stormed a room where Askren and his wife were waiting.
He threw something in his direction then tried to intimate him while mocking his social media antics.
Unfazed by his stunt, Askren laughed it off and hilariously joked: "That's definitely over the 6 person bubble!"
