This weekend sees a celebrity boxing match between Jake Paul and Ben Askren, which is highly anticipated by some. Here is a complete guide to streaming the fight online.
If you had said at this time next year that Paul and Askren were going to be boxing each other, you would be hard pressed to find somebody who believed you. In large part this was due to the difference in where each man is in their career, but also at the time Ben was retired and fresh off of a hip replacement.
Nevertheless, this is what is happening as the Olympic wrestler and former Bellator and ONE champ makes his pro boxing debut against the YouTube boxer. As for Jake, this will be his third pro contest, but it will easily be his biggest step up in competition as his first two bouts were against a YouTube rapper and NBA dunk champion.
