You know things are about to get weird whenever one of the Paul brothers prepares to enter the ring, and true to form, YouTuber Jake Paul's showdown with former Bellator and UFC fighter Ben Askren will also feature performances from Justin Bieber, Doja Cat and The Black Keys, as well as an appearance from Snoop Dogg...

24-year-old Jake Paul, the younger brother of Logan, has three fights (two professional) and three victories to his name, while this will be 36-year-old Askren's first professional boxing match. Read our guide on how to live stream Jake Paul vs Ben Askren from anywhere.

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren at a glance

The Jake Paul vs Ben Askren fight takes place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, April 17.

It's a PPV event, and you can watch via Triller Fight Club in the US and Canada for $49.99. Fite is showing the event in the UK and Australia, where it costs US$23.99

The event starts at 6pm ET / 3pm PT, but Jake Paul and Ben Askren are expected to make their ring walks at 9pm ET / 6pm PT - making it a 2am BST start in the UK. For those tuning in from Australia, it's an 11am AEST start on Sunday morning.

Askren, however, is a pure-bred fighter. He's a multiple Dan Hodge Trophy winner, he represented the US at the Beijing Olympics, and he's been the Bellator Welterweight Champion and the ONE FC Welterweight Champion.

On the other hand, Paul has significant height, reach and weight advantages, and sits near the upper limit of the Cruiserweight class (200lb), whereas through large parts of his career Askren has been closer to the lower limit (175lb).

Furthermore, Askren's retirement from MMA sports was enforced by persistent hip issues, for which he underwent surgery last year. 

Have the odds been stacked greatly enough in Paul's favor, or will Askren shut the YouTuber up? Here's how to watch Jake Paul vs Ben Askren from anywhere.
