YouTuber Jake Paul and retired mixed martial artist Ben Askren square off in a boxing match at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA on Saturday, April 17, which makes it Sunday, April 18 in Australia. The scheduled for eight round cruiserweight contest headlines the fight card live on pay-per-view.Paul (2-0, 2 KOs) is coming off the win by knockout in the second round against NBA vet Nate Robinson. Prior to that he TKO’d AnEsonGib in Round 1.

 

Askren (0-0) is a former Bellator MMA and ONE Championship welterweight champion. After a pair of defeats inside the UFC Octagon he retired from mixed martial arts, and is now set to make his pro boxing debut.

Also on the card a six-round matchup between former WBO cruiserweight title challenger Steve Cunningham (29-9-1, 12 KOs) and former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir (0-0), and a light heavyweight contest between Joe Fournier (8-0, 8 KOs, 1 NC) and Reykon. The full Paul vs Askren undercard can be found below.The brains behind the operation is Ryan Kavanaugh, CEO of billion dollar film company Relativity Media, who have produced over 250 movies.

 

Kavanaugh entered the boxing business with a boom last November, bringing heavyweight icon Mike Tyson, 54, out of retirement.

 

And on the undercard, Paul, 24, became a viral sensation after knocking out ex-NBA point guard Nate Robinson, 36.

 

The nostalgia of Tyson’s first fight in 15 years and Paul’s army of fans helped the spectacle event sell 1.6m PPVs.

 
 

But Kavanaugh claimed he has the numbers to prove that Askren’s shot at the internet star will surpass those figures and smash at least 2m box office buys.

 

He told SunSport: “We run some analytics and statistics on our fights in terms of what we project it will do.

 

“I actually project this fight will be in the top five all-time pay-per-views, more than Tyson.

“A lot of variables go into our AI that’s running but what we look at is the social activity and the type of audience.”In Jake’s case, you’ve got a guy that when you analyse the amount of interactivity that he’s getting socially on the content he posts, you basically know that he and that fight is already good for about 1.5m buys.

 

“Then, you take the fact that Askren brings an MMA audience with him that others don’t, meaning it’s a steeper audience.

 

“We haven’t announced our undercard yet but we have some pretty awesome fights on that card that will excite even the highest of boxing purists.

 

“Then you add on all the music talent like we had last time and we’re shooting it a whole different way.

 

“When you add each of those components we don’t see how we do under 2m buys.”

 

Paul made his professional boxing debut in 2020, having won an exhibition bout in England in 2018.

 

He quickly recorded two KOs in as many fights, firstly against online rival ‘AnEsonGib’ and then Robinson.

 

Paul has since emerged as one of the most polarising characters in boxing after just 12 months in the sport.Despite not yet beating an opponent with fighting experience, he called out UFC pair Conor McGregor, 32, and Nate Diaz, 35.

 

With 20MILLION YouTube subscribers behind him, and PPV interest to back it up, the ex-vlogger has promised to become ‘the future of boxing’.

 

And Kavanaugh reckons if Paul can convince his masses of fans and followers to support his boxing career, he can be good to his word.

 

He said: “Boxing was not an under 30s sport it was an over 30s sport.

 

“So what I would say is that he might become the face of boxing, not because everyone in boxing says he’s the face of boxing, but he brings a whole other audience to boxing.

 

“When I say the ‘face’, if he brings a million people with him to the buys, a lot of them were not buyers of boxing before.”

Despite Paul’s promise as a PPV attraction, he is yet to test himself against a challenger with a background in fighting.

 

That will change in just under two months, when he faces Askren, who won titles in Bellator and ONE Championship before joining the UFC in 2019.
