JAKE PAUL GETS FIRED UP AT SPICY BEN ASKREN PRE-FIGHT PRESS CONFERENCE

THE MAIN EVENT.

YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul is set to face off against former UFC star Ben Askren in just 22 days’ time.

However their March 26 press conference almost saw Jake swing fists beforehand.

Paul and his squad walked into an empty room that Askren was resting in and called him out - even throwing a napkin at him.

At the beginning of their interview, Paul stood to his feet to spout a string of profanity at his opponent.

“This is the f***ing fight game you p***y a** b***, You sound like a middle-schooler! Shut the f*** up!”

Paul repeatedly refused to take part in the pandemic precautions, urging Askren to faceoff with him directly.

Once the shoot was over, Askren gave Paul a light palm to the face, prompting Paul to shove Askren’s back as he walked away.

Staff were quick to get between the fighters, it’s clear that Paul didn’t come to play and Askren isn’t too shy to rile up the YouTuber.
