The Build Up

At a fiery press conference last month, the two came face to face for the first time in the run-up to their fight. Many words were exchanged, with both fighters throwing insults and ‘shade’ at one another in an attempt to rattle their opponent during their first meeting.

Jake Paul comes into the fight with an undefeated 2-0 record, with his latest fight part of the undercard of Mike Tyson’s exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr.. Paul knocked out ex-NBA star Nate Robinson in the second round to claim the victory.

Meanwhile, this clash will be the first time Ben Askren will step into a boxing ring for a fight. However, he’s obviously no stranger to combat sports as an MMA fighter, and has a 19-2-0 MMA record.

If that wasn’t enough, both Justin Bieber and Snoop Dogg will perform live on the night, adding to the star-studded line-up on the night.
