Jake Paul claims his fight with Ben Askren netted him $65 million.
Paul Starts a very lucrative payday after his boxing match with former UFC fighter Ben Askren.
According to the Youtuber-Cum fighter, this corresponds to 6.5 million US dollars.
It is unclear how much of a slice Paul receives from this juicy payout, however, it is likely to be incredibly high.
The fight was broadcast on Triller, Jake is an investor.
When Jake spoke to ESPN last year after his fight with former NBA player Nate Robinson he talked his bag.
“My deal has been integrated into the background structure”
This fight, which also included Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones JR, was able to bring in over a million ppvs.
So we can certainly assume this will be a big payday for Paul.
This is also on his original salary for signing on to the fight, which was $690,000.
Askren was paid $500,000, but the bigger payday went to the midkarte fight at Regis prognois.
That’s a pretty decent payday for Paul, considering the fight lasted only one round.
Despite Askren’s valiant attempt to get back to his feet and continue the fight, the referee called the game to Paul, who ran to his corner and jumped to the ropes.
In his post-fight interview, Jake Paul said he couldn’t believe how far he had come, adding, “A few years ago, my teachers used to tease me in class that I wasn’t going to amount to anything, they told me I wasn’t smart.”
“My classmates would tease me, I used to have fun. I just had a dream and I pursued it and worked hard.”
“To think that I’m here next to these legends, it’s amazing.
I don’t know how many times I have to prove this is real.
