Social media star Jake Paul is officially going to fight Ben Askren.

After some chatter about the fight happening in March, it’s officially a done deal. Triller co-founder Ryan Kavanaugh told ESPN that the eight round boxing match is on between Askren and Jake Paul. It will take place April 17 at a location that is not known at this time. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I can’t tell you all how much I’m hoping Askren just absolutely obliterates Jake Paul. I hope it’s not even close.

Don’t forget that Askren was a pro MMA fighter for a long time, and he had an outstanding career. The man can fight.

While he’s not a boxer, we know he’ll have the stamina to go the distance.

Somebody just needs to shut Jake Paul up. The dude has to be silenced. He thinks he’s some star athlete because he knocked out Nate Robinson.

Big deal. That means nothing to anyone with a brain. Until he starts taking out real fighters, he’s a joke.

I think I speak for everyone when I say I hope Ben Askren knocks him out to the moon.
