Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren promo released

A new promo for the highly anticipated showdown between Jake Paul and Ben Askren has been released by Triller as the pay-per-view event draws near on April 17.

With a voiceover provided by Triller co-owner Snoop Dogg, the new video teases the main event clash that will pit Paul against Askren in a boxing match between the YouTube celebrity and the former UFC contender.

“Ben’s gonna have to kill me to win the fight,” Paul promises during the new commercial.

While he only has two professional bouts on his resume against opponents without any previous boxing experience, Paul is currently a slight favorite to win the fight that headlines Triller’s latest pay-per-view offering.

Askren will be coming out of retirement to face Paul after they got into a heated war of words over Twitter. The former Olympic wrestler will be boxing professional for the first time in his career, although his combat sports history includes title reigns in both Bellator and ONE Championship.

The upcoming Triller Fight Club card will also feature a number of musical performances including Justin Bieber and The Black Keys during the four-hour card that will air live on traditional pay-per-view outlets on cable and satellite as well as FITE TV online.
