Ben Askren will bid to become the first man to beat Jake Paul in a boxing ring tonight when the former UFC star makes his debut in the square circle.

Paul is fighting for the third time as a professional having knocked out first fellow social media star AnEsonGib and then former basketball player Nate Robinson.

Askren struggled in the UFC when he signed for the promotion and his wrestling style appears little suited to the sport of boxing.

But he is confident he can upset the odds and put a dent in Paul's bid to become boxing's next big star.

Jake Paul

"I see myself as an elite fighter right now. A young prospect with a lot of motivation, a lot of hunger and I think people see me as a s***** amateur.

"So, there’s a 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 on Saturday against Ben, who is a world-class fighter.

"People don’t understand me, they don’t get me. And I don’t think they maybe ever will. I have a tattoo on the back of my neck, it says, 'I wish I could explain', because I wish I could explain.

"If I could talk to you guys for hours on hours and become your friend, you would maybe start to understand me. And my inner circle understands me, the closest people around me understand me, my family understands me and they get what I’m trying to do. But the world doesn’t know who Jake Paul, and maybe I like it that way."

Ben Askren

"I’m as healthy as I have been for a while, yes. But obviously I can’t stand it when some 36… Athletes in the late thirties say “This is the best I’ve ever been.” I’m like, bullshit.

"Give me 24 year old myself back again, I’d love to have that. But I am injury free and I feel great, so I’m ready to fight on Saturday night."
