Ben Askren Slams "Coward" Jake Paul As Former UFC Star Provides Update On Boxing Bout

Ben Askren Slams "Coward" Jake Paul As Former UFC Star Provides Update On Boxing Bout

Jake Paul has been in a confident mood since his knockout victory over Nate Robinson last month.

The YouTuber ended their fight in two rounds, knocking down Robinson twice before the KO.

This has led to the 23-year-old declaring his plan to continue boxing, with defeating Conor McGregor his eventual aim.

He told ESPN: "I am dedicating my life to beating Conor McGregor

".Financially, it already makes sense. Financially, I'm already one of the biggest prizefighters and there's only a couple more bosses to check off and to beat and to conquer."

However, there will be a few fights before Paul can get close to facing the Irishman, and one of them may be former UFC fighter Ben Askren.

The retired 36-year-old last fought in 2019, losing to Demian Mala in October before announcing his retirement in November of that year.

However, Askren agreed to re-enter combat sports fight Paul on 28 March in Los Angeles - that was until Paul started ignoring his calls.

Jake Paul Sparring Partner Claims Ben Askren Is "Going Down"

"So let me give you a little recap of the situation," Askren said. "I'm retired, coaching wrestling, doing some podcasts, buying some Bitcoin, enjoying life.

"I don't really wanna fight anybody. So in November, this jabroni Jake Paul calls me out, puts up a poster with my name, ha ha ha its' kinda funny. Whatever, right? No big deal.

"Well then, a couple weeks later, I get a couple texts and a week after that I get some calls and I get an offer.

"Okay, this guy really wants to fight. Am I opposed to making some easy money? Beating up a YouTuber? Of course I'm not. So what do I do? 'Sure, Jacob, I'll fight you'. No problem. I accept publicly, on Twitter, nonetheless.

"Since then Jacob has gone silent. Jacob is kind of a coward. Sorry guys, I don't think the fight is happening."
