Ben Askren is set to fight Jake Paul in a boxing match in April, he has now bonded with Paul's brother, Logan over the game of disc golf — this and much more on Friday's social media roundup.
Ben Askren bonds with his future opponent's brother
Former Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren is set to make his proffessional boxing debut against YouTuber Jake Paul next month. Askren's opponent, Paul also has a brother called Logan who is a YouTuber and part time boxer himself. Logan Paul was actually scheduled to fight Floyd Mayweather early this year but the fight was pushed back due to a lack of interest in the fight.
After Askren made an appearance on Logan's podcast Impaulsive, the two, as well as Logan's friends spoke about how they wanted to organize a game of disc golf which is a sport which Askren is really good at.
Check out the clip below.
As you can see in the clip, it seems like Askren and Paul as well as Paul's friends all got on very well with each other.
From what we have seen from Jake Paul since he became a boxer, it is quite likely that he will be unhappy with this and will probably create a big problem.
It certainly seems like Askren and Logan Paul will be going for a game of disc golf as in the clip Logan says "I would fucking love to play disc golf."
