The fight only lasted 10 seconds, but it was long enough for Jake Paul to make a lot of money
Jake Paul, the YouTube star and self-proclaimed professional boxer, made quick work of Ben Askren in their much-hyped fight on Saturday night. Paul, who is 3-0 as a professional boxer, knocked out Askren in the first round with a right hand to the temple that sent the former MMA fighter crashing to the canvas. The knockout was so vicious that Askren was knocked out before he hit the ground, and the referee had to wave off the fight without even counting to 10. According to ESPN, Paul is set to earn a cool $1 million for the fight, while Askren will take home $500,000.
While those are certainly not small sums of money, it’s a drop in the bucket compared to what Paul could have made if the fight had gone according to plan. According to Boxing Scene, Paul was set to earn a base purse of $10 million for the fight, with Askren taking home $500,000. However, the fight was far from a sure thing, as Askren is a former MMA fighter with no boxing experience. As such, Paul’s team reportedly had insurance policies in place that would have netted him an additional $20 million if he had lost the fight. Fortunately for Paul, he didn’t need the insurance money, as he made quick work of Askren and earned a cool $1 million for his efforts.
