Askren did not hold back

Before the fight, they exchanged a lot of trash talk online and then came face to face for the first time.

Askren began, “I had heard of Jake Paul before accepting this fight, but I couldn’t tell you much about him or his brother.

“I knew he kind of came in his brother’s shadow, he was trying to follow in his brother’s footsteps.

“His brother is much more talented, has a wider audience.”

At this point, Jake chimed in and said, “You literally went to your Instagram and asked people for roasts.

Jake Paul and Logan Paul had a rivalry in the past

“You asked people for roasts on your Instagram and that was the biggest comment, ‘Say his brother is better than him.'”

Askren chimed in, “Is he?”

But Jake continued, “It’s like calling Kylie Jenner ‘Kendall Jenner’.”

Askren said, “I don’t know anything about that.”

Jake explained: “It’s okay, it’s always a compliment.

“I would love to be Logan, Logan is a great boy, we’re both stars, both taking over the world at a young age.”

Askren dismissed him and started again, “Okay, so when Logan’s little brother called me…”

Askren and Paul clashed at the press conference

Later in the event, they had another personal exchange about Logan.

Askren asked, “Who is better, you or him in boxing?”

Jake replied, “Me, hands down.

“That’s why I’m 3-0, (3 KOs) and he’s 0-1-1.”

Askren continued, “Did he ever kick your ass when you were the little brother?”

There was a silence then as Jake refused to answer.

Askren prompted him, “That was a question, Jake. You are expected to respond.

And Jake said, “I don’t care what your questions are.”

Askren concluded, “Okay, I’ll take that as ‘he was rubbing your face on the carpet every week’.”

In response, Jake said, “Yeah, sure Ben,” and let out a strange, sarcastic laugh.

Also at the press conference, Jake called out UFC star Jorge Masvidal, who knocked out Askren in five seconds at UFC 239, and then they went head-to-head.

In the fight itself however, Jake KOd Askren inside the first round.
