Jake Paul’s fight with Ben Askren is fast approaching, coming in just a month from today on Saturday, April 17, a main event for a Triller Fight Club pay-per-view. There’s been lots of jabber, with Dana White willing to bet $1 million that Askren will win, Snoop Dogg apparently offering to make it $2 million on Paul, and all kinds of other trash talk and whatever, stuff that works for this new age that you and me, old, do not fully understand.

Here’s Jake Paul pulling a fire truck:

Many commenters asked how many people might have been behind the truck helping, but this is a stupid question. If that were happening, most likely Jake wouldn’t even know, like when Grizz and Dotcom allowed Tracy Jordan to win at everything on “30 Rock,” or those lackeys that allowed Justin Bieber to cross them up for social media basketball videos.

Anyway, Paul vs Askren is happening on April 17 in Atlanta, with an undercard that features Antonio Tarver vs Frank Mir, Regis Prograis vs Ivan Redkach, and someone called Joe Fournier fighting someone called Reykon. (I’m not trying to be smarmy, I am well aware that I am out of touch with a lot of pop culture stuff.) You can buy the show on PPV here if you’re interested.
