    He had amateur boxing match but the opponent was like anyone without a pro or even amateur boxing background. Heck the guy didn't even have any sports background yet he busted Jake's nose and took the fight to fourth round before gassing.

    If you think Paul gasses, Askren R5-8 is +1200 with Bet365

  3. My prediction is that I don't give a fuck about this shit tier boxing match between two people that don't belong in a boxing ring.

    This is a spectacle for 12 year old Jake Paul fans to watch, not grown ass men.

    To tell you the truth I had no idea who he was, but when someone related to him offered me $300 (to train with him), I decided to accept. When I arrived at his house with my friend Alexandre Pantoja, I politely went to greet everyone,” Perez said. “But when I went to shake hands, he gave me a closed fist. Then I looked at Pantoja and asked, ‘That was the guy I came to help?’”

    Once Perez and Paul hit the ring to spar, intensity quickly reached levels beyond what is normal for that type of session.

    “He started the sparring going hard, and I hit him with a jab in the end of the first round and his nose started to bleed. From that point on we started to fight,” Perez said. “I called for him to beat me up and he was afraid, just circling and staying out of my range. Of course, he is able to box and has a good cross, but he is clearly not a fighter -- just an adventurous (type).”

    Based on that experience, Perez sees Askren, a former Bellator and One Championship title holder, as a clear favorite in the matchup.

    "Askren is a real fighter,” Perez said. “He will close the distance and beat him up around the body and liver, just like I did. A fight is always a fight, anything can happen, but I believe he will knock Paul out around the second or third round.”

    The Brazilian, who remains without a promotional home, said he didn’t receive the full $300 for the session that was initially promised by Paul’s team.

    “They just gave me $150,” he said. “But in that regard, I have to support their attitude. I also wouldn’t pay $300 for someone who kicked my ass, the way I did with him.”



    Paul bettors are gonna be shitting bricks once Paul is sucking wind halfway through the 2nd round.

    This forum name might be wrong, it should not be call ....'Mma betting discussion!', it should be call 'High skillful match discussion'.
    Lots of clown are here not for betting or making money, they here to discuss legit matchup, legit skills level and real fight.

    Alnost all bookies i have seen have odds for this fight. I don't really see what would be the advantage for this fight to be fixed. They both make a shitton of money anyway and Askren is a true competitor.

    Rigged judges make it a draw and both sides lose? It's possible, people should check their ticket to see if its Draw No Bet because boxing is different than MMA with respect to draws.

    I cant believe there are people out there that think jake paul is going to beat ben askren.


    Jake paul is just learning how to box, has fought absolute bums, and has literally never boxed another human that knows how to box.



    Askren on the other hand has eaten shots from koreshkov, lawler, and lima. And for people who think askren doesnt know how to box, just lol. The guy has an mma style that doesnt include striking. To think that he will go into this fight not knowing how to box is laughable. Its a boxing match. Thats literally the only thing he is training right now. Not to mention the fact that he will have a massive cardio advantage.


    Why waste your money on jake fucking paul?

  13. I have no skin in this fight, and I absolutely despise Jake Paul. I think he's a narcissistic sociopath. I absolutely cannot stand him.

    But allow me to play devil's advocate.

    Askren, in his prime, had good cardio and a good chin. But he's far removed from his prime.

    He's coming off of hip REPLACEMENT surgery. He had the procedure done just 4 and a half months ago.

    You're a professional fighter, so please, show me any moments in Ben's career where he utilized any form of correct boxing. Head movement/any type of jabs or crosses with correct form. You'll be hard pressed to find ANY tape of him doing so.

    His wrestling was so elite that he never needed to learn any form of decent stand-up technique, so he never did.

    Jake Paul has millions of dollars to spend on a training camp, and is young and improving rapidly. He is indeed surrounded by "yes men", but is also surrounded by a lot of good fighters that he overpays to teach him how to do things correctly. He's devoted to boxing, and when you're as young as he is, you develop quite quickly.

    I don't want to say Ben has shit cardio now, but it's NO WHERE near as good as it used to be. He was gassed in the second round of his last MMA fight versus Maia.

    However, with all of that being said, Askren is a natural fighter. He's used to taking a shot, and moving forward. He has grit that Jake Paul doesn't have, and never will have.

    So despite him being fundamentally inferior to Paul when it comes to boxing, I think Askren wins this fight on sheer toughness. I think it's going to be a sloppy fight, with Jake landing the crisper shots in the first few rounds, but Askren is going to keep plodding forward. And Jake will gas, Ben will slow down as well -- but his relentlessness will be something Jake has never had to deal with.

    So, tldr, gun to my head, Askren wins an incredibly sloppy fight. I'm not putting a dime on this shit show though. Best of luck to anyone betting on it.

    Damn odds for Paul plummeted, wish I put something on when it was 1.9
     
  15. Wait, are the rounds 2 minutes or 3 minutes?

    I remember for the Logan Paul/KSI fight they were 2 minutes.

    If they're 3, I might just bet on Ben.

    I was gonna bet Paul but I thought odds where drifting so I waited, But now I may throw something on Askren if I can get him at +200 as he is actually looking much improved in his workouts
