Paul told ESPN he’ll knock Askren out faster than Jorge Masvidal’s famed flying knee at UFC 239.
“I started boxing two years ago and I’m still going to knock his ass out faster than Masvidal,” he said. “These MMA guys think because they throw punches they know how to box. The world complained because I knocked out a basketball player and not a real fighter. So now I’m giving the people what they want by taking on a ‘real fighter.’ After Ben Askren is added to my knockout meme collection, what can anybody say?”
