Jake Paul vs Askren live updates: Latest stream details and results


Jake Paul clashes with KSI during his post-fight interview

Follow all the action as YouTube star Jake Paul takes on former UFC fighter Ben Askren at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Determined to set up a fight with Conor McGregor, Paul has won his first two professional bouts, with knockout victories against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson. Askren, meanwhile, retired from mixed martial arts after he went 1-2 in the UFC, and was famously on the receiving end of the fastest knockout in UFC history when he was defeated by Jorge Masvidal at UFC 239.

With former world champion Regis Prograis appearing on the undercard, it is set to be an explosive, trash-talk laden evening of entertainment. Many have derided Paul’s claims to be an “elite fighter”, however, the American is determined to prove his credentials are real in his hardest test yet. “A young prospect with a lot of motivation, a lot of hunger and I think people see me as an amateur,” he said. “There’s sort of a big difference and there’s a big gap in between where I’m actually at and what the general audience will think, but I’m excited again to show my ability again on Saturday, against Ben who is a world-class fighter.” Follow all the action live below:

PROGRAIS VS REDKACH

Round 1: Redkach – who has dyed his hair blue for some reason – backs off in the early stages as Prograis takes the centre of the ring and pings out the jab that we became so familiar with against Josh Taylor – a fight he narrowly lost.

A tentative start from both guys but Prograis did enough with his lead right hand to take it.

PROGRAIS VS REDKACH

Here we go then. Undoubtedly the most legitimate fight of the night. A proper clash.

MORE MUSIC

Right, time for more music after the D’Amelio sisters give a random belt to Steve Cunningham. That’s my queue to make my third coffee of the night.

Not the best reviews of the Triller Fight Club so far…

CUNNINGHAM BEATS MIR

The judges score the fight 60-54, 60-54, 58-56 all in favour of Steve Cunningham. No doubt about that one.

MIR VS CUNNINGHAM

Round 6: Cunningham barely sweating as he comes out for the final round. Less can be said for Mir.

Mir smothers his work as he tries to bombard Cunningham.

Cunningham comes back with a lovely flurry of punches that will probably steal the round.

That’s the final bell. Very one-sided but Mir stayed in there and credit to him for that.

MIR VS CUNNINGHAM

Round 5: The broadcast scorer gave that last round to Mir. Didn’t see that myself.

Cunningham seamlessly switching between orthodox and southpaw, clearly still got it.

The former cruiserweight pivots around as Mir gets his balance all wrong and punishes him with a stiff right hook.

With one round to go, Cunningham has this in the bag.

MIR VS CUNNINGHAM

Round 4: Pretty sure De La Hoya thinks Cunningham is Mir and vice-versa.

Cunningham’s jab is winning this fight. He’s keeping Mir at distance and then moving to the body when he gets inside.

Mir far too static with his head and body. Cunningham picking him off.

MIR VS CUNNINGHAM

Round 3: I think the couple of shots Mir landed were flukes if I’m honest because Cunningham looks unshaken by the UFC champion. His sharpness, movement and mix of head and body shots are far superior to Mir.

‘Jab is key’ says De La Hoya. Well, Cunningham is winning that battle for sure.

MIR VS CUNNINGHAM

Round 2: Commentator Oscar de la Hoya is saying Frank Mir ‘can move’. Obviously, Golden Boy knows boxing better than me. But in this instance, I have to disagree.

Cunningham is toying with Mir at the mom…OH! Good shot from Mir as he rocks Cunningham twice towards the end of the round!

Wow, that truly came from nowhere. Clearly some meat on those punches from Mir.
