Why Should I Care About This Fight?
The Triller Fight Club: Jake Paul vs Ben Askren PPV event is going to be one for the viral history books. As much as we hate to say it, Paul has an interesting fight style that, as you can imagine, is quite controversial. He takes the bully approach when fighting his opponents, so not only are the attacks physical, but they’re also psychological.
This will be the first time Jake Paul will be fighting someone who is actually known for fighting in a professional event. So, whether you love or hate the guy, this one is going to be interesting. If Paul wins, it’s safe to say that there’s a good chance he will be taken more seriously in his future fighting career.
