Jake Paul Height: How Tall is the YouTuber-Turned-Boxer?

Once seen as a bit of a novelty act in boxing, YouTuber turned boxer, Jake Paul, has quite firmly established himself as a competitor to watch lately. With a growing number of wins under his belt, no one can really question whether Jake Paul is a professional boxer anymore. He undoubtedly is, although he hasn’t necessarily been tested yet, with his series of bouts against non-professional fighters. With the Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren match coming up, we thought we’d check out how tall Jake Paul is and what his potential reach is.

Simply put, according to BoxRec, which keeps an eye on all the key statistics for boxers, Jake Paul, aka The Problem Child, is 6-feet, 1-inch (185cm) tall with a reach of 76 inches. Those are approximate measurements so could vary in real life, but it’s important to acknowledge because Paul hasn’t fought anyone over 5-foot-9-inches yet. When he went up against Deji Olatunji, the brother of British YouTuber KSI, he had a 6-inch advantage. It was the same with fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, while his bout against ex-NBA player, Nate Robinson still offered him a 4-inch advantage.

When Jake Paul faces retired MMA star, Ben Askren, tonight, the lineup could be a bit more balanced. Ben Askren is considered to be 5-feet, 11-inches with a 72-inch reach which could make all the difference. Of course, that’s before you take into account that Askren is a former professional fighter, unlike the others that Paul has fought against.

It’s sure to be quite the test for the young YouTuber-turned-boxer, and we’ve already extensively checked out the Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren card. It might be Askren’s first boxing match but he has a professional MMA record of 19 wins with only two losses to his name. He also held the welterweight championships in both Bellator and ONE FC so he certainly has the expertise.

When the two meet tonight, it should be an entertaining night with three more contests on the undercard along with musical acts from artists including Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, and the world premiere of rap supergroup Mt. Westmore featuring Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube. The event will air exclusively via Triller Fight Club on FITE.tv.

Is Jake Paul a Professional Boxer? What You Need to Know
Jake Paul takes a swing at his opponent in the ring.

You likely know Jake Paul as a YouTube star, but in recent years, the social media personality -- who was already not without his share of controversy -- has raised some eyebrows when he stepped into the ring to try his hand at boxing. The move was not without success, however, as Paul has won all of his fights so far and has proven himself to be quite the pay-per-view draw. The question nonetheless remains: Is Jake Paul actually a professional boxer? Here's what you need to know.

The world of professional boxing is comprised of many international organizations both large and small. And unlike MMA, where one promotion stands tall above the rest (that'd be the UFC), there's no one boxing league that dominates all others when it comes to hosting fights and selling tickets. A fight is simply considered professional if it is regulated and sanctioned by one of the recognized bodies that exist for this purpose. These sanctioning bodies set rules, help negotiate the contracts, assign judges and referees for the fights, and award their own championship belts.

Triller Fight Club has arrived and it's not quite like any other combat sports league out there. Triller, a streaming-app-turned-fight-broadcaster, has been blazing a trail through the boxing world since hosting two explosive fights last fall -- one of which featured the return of none other than boxing legend Mike Tyson -- but in a clear bid to gain the edge in a competitive field, Triller is bringing some unique offerings to the table. Here's everything you need to know about the new Triller Fight Club and how you can tune in with FITE.tv.

Triller got its start as a video-sharing social media app (similar to TikTok, its main competitor), but in November 2020, it hosted two notable boxing matches: An exhibition fight between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr., along with a professional bout between Jake Paul and Nate Robinson. Triller subsequently outbid DAZN and Top Rank Boxing for the airing rights to the upcoming match between Unified Lightweight Champion Teofimo Lopez and George Kambosos, later announcing another pay-per-view fight card featuring Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren as the headliner.

Triller hasn't released any official schedule for it yet, however. Nonetheless, we can glean some details from the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones, Jr. exhibition that Triller and the Legends Only League hosted together last November.
