Se confirmó que Jake Paul peleará con la estrella de UFC Ben Askren en su próximo combate de boxeo profesional

La celebridad de YouTube se pondrá los guantes para su tercera pelea profesional el 17 de abril contra su compatriota estadounidense.

Será un combate de ocho rounds, con la sede aún por confirmarse.

Paul prometió "noquearlo más rápido que lo hecho por [Jorge] Masvidal", al confirmar el enfrentamiento en sus cuentas de redes sociales.

"Sé que Jake Paul disfruta fingiendo que es un boxeador", dijo Askren a ESPN. "Creo que el 17 de abril va a tener un rudo despertar de cómo es realmente ser un boxeador.

"Jake ha llevado una vida privilegiada y realmente no sabe cuál es el significado de ser un luchador. Voy a poner fin a sus sueños".

Paul está invicto como profesional después de vencer a su compañero YouTuber AnEsonGib por nocaut en enero pasado. Posteriormente, derrotó al exjugador de la NBA Nate Robinson, como parte de la cartelera de la pelea de Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr en noviembre.

Askren todavía está bajo contrato con UFC, pero se espera que se le dé permiso para irse y realizar esta pelea.
