YouTube star and Internet troll Jake Paul is ready for another shot at fame, this time in the boxing ring. The younger of the Paul brothers is set to headline the latest Triller Fight Club PPV on Saturday night in Atlanta, though this time against an actual combat athlete. Paul will be opposite former MMA welterweight champion Ben Askren inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium atop a four-fight card filled with musical acts and headlined by Justin Bieber and Snoop Dogg.
Despite all the bluster and trolling, Paul has actually shown decent skill in his first two appearances. Even though it was against extremely low levels of competition and not pro fighters, Paul scored a pair of knockouts that went viral. First he stopped AnEsonGib, a fellow YouTube star, before brutalizing former NBA player Nate Robinson last November.
