Askren, an accomplished mixed martial artist who held titles in Bellator and ONE Championship, retired from competition in late 2019. However, he’s coming back for one giant payday to face someone not renowned for fighting.
Paul, a popular YouTuber, has had just two professional fights but many believe he has what it takes to defeat the renowned wrestler in a boxing match. The 24-year-old has displayed potential in two fights, albeit against a former NBA player and another YouTuber.
The fight has captured the attention of fans with strong opinions formed on either side of this upcoming boxing fight. Will Askren easily handle the “kid from YouTube” or will Paul surprise fans and beat Askren up on the feet?
