Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren Date: When Is the Boxing Match?

After a hugely successful pay-per-view event last November featuring the return of none other than boxing legend Mike Tyson, Triller — and more specifically, the new Triller Fight Club — is set to hold another exciting night of boxing, music, and entertainment with YouTube star-turned-pro-boxer Jake Paul stepping into the ring to face former MMA fighter Ben Askren. Here’s when it’s going to go down.

Triller, a popular video streaming app similar to TikTok, has branched out out recently in some interesting ways. Last November, it teamed up with the Legends Only League to host a record-breaking pay-per-view event featuring an exhibition boxing match between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr., along with a professional fight between YouTube star Jake Paul and former NBA player Nate Robinson. Triller then outbid DAZN and Top Rank Boxing for the airing rights to a contest between former Unified Lightweight Champion Teofimo Lopez and George Kambosos before announcing another pay-per-view match featuring Jake Paul, who will now be facing former UFC contender Ben Askren.


That night-long show will take place at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, today, starting at 9 PM ET, and features seven fights on the card. The bout between Jake Paul and Ben Askren serves as the headliner and the main draw of the night. On the undercard, third-ranked light-welterweight Regis Prograis will face off against Ivan Redkach, two-time UFC heavyweight champ Frank Mir will go fist-to-fist with former IBF cruiserweight pro and multiple champoinship winner Steve Cunningham, and British entrepreneur Joe Fournier (who holds a record of 8-0 and won the vacant WBA light heavyweight title since becoming a professional boxer in 2015) will fight Colombian music star Reykon.

Fans can look forward to more than just fights, however. In line with its unconventional approach to boxing, Triller Fight Club will also be hosting musical acts including Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, and the first-ever performance of the rap supergroup Mt. Westmore which features Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Too $hort and E-40. Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Bert Marcus is producing and directing the event and you can stream it live on your PC, smart TV, mobile device, or gaming console with The Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren pay-per-view rings in at just $50, giving you full access to a night chock-full of combat, music, and more starting at 9 PM ET.

Jake Paul Height: How Tall is the YouTuber-Turned-Boxer?
how tall is jake paul height triller presents mike tyson vs roy jones jr

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.
