Dana White is convinced that Ben Askren will have a successful boxing debut and is ready to invest as much as one million US dollars in the defeat of Jake Paul. Today, retired MMA fighter Askren and popular 24-year-old YouTuber will box on April 17 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Their match was arranged for eight rounds, and despite the fact that Ben has many years of experience in martial arts behind him, there are many who prefer the 12-year-old younger Paul. But White is clearly not one of them ...
White seems to have no sympathy for Paul and seems eager for his defeat. Given his profession and the fact that he has no professional career behind him, it is not surprising that White has such an attitude. However, the match will take place and it will be interesting whether the bookmakers will include the match in their offer and whether it will be possible to bet on this type of match.
"Let's be honest, Jake Paul is not a f****** boxer. He is a female kid from YouTube. Yes, he will fight a wrestler. A really good wrestler who has fought serious characters and who has been a world champion in other organizations."
"I hope it will be possible to bet on this match because in that case, I will bet a million dollars on his defeat. I will bet a million dollars that he will lose," White said as a guest on the Hotboxin 'with Mike Tyson podcast.
For Paul, this will be his third professional boxing match after victories over Ali Essonne Gibb and former NBA player Nate Robinson. These are not names from which one could draw any more serious conclusions about his skills, but there are also those who think that he is more dangerous on his hands than Askren, for whom boxing has never been a strong point.
Of course, Jake is also full of confidence, so he reacted to White's statements with his offer. Paul made an interesting statement on his Instagram profile "Dana let’s double the bet up! $ 2 Million. We wire the money into escrow.
$ 4 million total." "Winner takes all. My team will be in touch to make a contract. After I knockout Ben, we can set up Jake Paul Vs. Dana White 2021 since you consider yourself a “Boxer” and me a “YouTuber”
