Social media star Jake Paul and MMA veteran Ben Askren headline the April 17 Triller Fight Club pay-per-view event. Here’s how to watch the action live.
It’s always an interesting experience when you have social media star Jake Paul in a boxing bout. On Saturday, April 17, Paul battles former UFC star Ben Askren in an eight-round professional boxing match.
Paul (2-0, 2 KOs) is undefeated in his professional boxing career but has fought a fellow social media star and former NBA player in his first two contests. He famously KO’d Nate Robinson in the second round back in November. Robinson wasn’t much of a boxer, but the KO went viral.
The fight card features former cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham against former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir in another eight-round boxing bout. Former WBA junior welterweight champion Regis Prograis fights Ivan Redkach in a 10 round bout that has serious implications for the junior welterweight division.
The entire fight card is taking place at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. A limited live audience will be in attendance. If you can’t make it to Atlanta, you can watch the main card from home on pay-per-view.
