Jake Paul left a bare-fingered boxer with a loose lip in a savage workout before taking out Ben Askren in one round.
The former Disney Channel star prepares to face Tommy Fury on December 18 in Florida as he continues his journey into the world of professional boxing.
Paul, 24, has fought four times in the span of just two years and seriously raised his eyebrows with his knockout of Askren in April.
The former UFC welterweight failed to hold a lap with Paul after a booming right hand and he landed a YouTuber deal with Showtime Sports, where he went on to beat Tyron Woodley.
Jake Bostwick was in the camp for Askren’s fight and can attest firsthand how surprisingly good he is.
“He was training with guys in Miami not far from where I live and I could hear he was enlightening some people and doing a really good job,” Bostwick told Cene Magazine.
“He needed more training partners and they felt some guys – it was for the fight against Ben Askren – so I got a few messages saying there was a good opportunity to come and train with Jake.” Paul.
“So I was ready for this, but the guy said, ‘Look, the guy can box, please don’t think he can’t’. And it came from a professional trainer, a guy I know.
“I was driving over there and I was nervous, it’s like an hour’s drive, and I was like, ‘Oh, there’s gonna be all these cameras and all of his boys, I really have to introduce myself. We had three solid rounds and he caught up to me with a few hits!
“He hit me with an uppercut and untied my upper lip!” He caught me with shit! I was like ‘What the fuck is this?’ “
The stakes were raised after months of verbal fighting between Paul and Fury, with a contentious bet attached to the fight.
If Fury wins, Paul has promised him another $ 500,000 if he wins, but the ex-Love Island contestant will be forced to change his name to “Tommy Fumbles” if he loses.
