Pete Davidson Burns Badly in Jake Paul vs. Ben Ask’s Paid Event Monologue
Who gave the most memorable analysis of the fight between boxer and retired retired mixed artist Ben Askre who became YouTuber on Saturday, Jake Paul? Pete Davidson, of course.
The member of the “Saturday Night Live” actor was a reporter at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta last weekend with his work “SNL”. Davidson took a deep dive into the match, offering a terrific view … nah, joking. The paid show turned into a roast session.
PAUL VS. BOX: How much did each fighter win?
Davidson ripped out both fighters and the overall state of boxing before the Paul-Askren fight. His full comments:
You can tell that this event is the professionalism they have had with me. We’re in Jake Paul’s locker room or locker rooms, if you want to call it that. Today is a wild day for boxing because it shows a low level of actually sinking. I think today proves that if you have enough followers, you can really do what you want. Maybe I mean [YouTuber] PewDiePie will cure cancer [Tik Tok star] Charli D’Amelio will become a surgeon. Who knows?
Tonight, we’re going to have a fight between Ben Askren – who I don’t know who he is yet and I’ve been reading all week – and Jake Paul. And, you know, they both suck but, you know, at least someone will get hurt. Now back to the cabin, to some real announcers.
Unfortunately for hopes of seeing a competitive fight, Paul-Ask’s struggle lasted a little longer than Davidson’s monologue. Paul did Askre’s quick work, falling in the first round with a hard right hand. Askren made an effort to regain his feet after a shot to the head, and the referee stopped the fight with a 1:59 mark.
Paul went 3-0 in his boxing career, though three wins against YouTuber AnEsonGib, former NBA player Nate Robinson and Askren, was always known as a fighter rather than a striker. He’s likely to earn big salaries as an act of novelty, but if he wants to take it seriously, he’ll have to deal with a real boxer someday.
Regardless of what Paul does next, he’ll probably think he’s sucking on Davidson.
