Jake Paul's trainer predicting easy victory over Ben Askren

Jake Paul's trainer believes that he will beat Ben Askren in two rounds.

The YouTuber will put his undefeated boxing record on the line against the former MMA fighter in April and his trainer BJ Flores is expecting an easy victory.

He told BoxingScene.com: "Ben Askren keeps talking about his Olympic credentials and his athletic ability.

"First of all Jake is 100% a better athlete than Ben. He is faster, stronger, and more explosive. Jake boxes very naturally and has been in the ring with some of the very best 175 to 200 pound prospects in the country. Jake has earned his stripes in Las Vegas over the past 12 months sparring many many top level professionals and already in Florida the word is out. This kid can fight."

Flores believes that the difference between Paul and Askren and believes that the MMA world will be shocked when the pair fight on April 17.

He explained: "Jake regularly trains and spars with some of the very best prospects in the country. The difference is night and day. Ben Askren and the entire MMA world is in for a major surprise on April 17. I’m not saying anything else. We will do our talking April 17th on Triller.

"Seeing some of the Ben Askren training footage, I will be shocked if this fight gets into the second round."
