Jake Paul Drops Cash On Ground, Claims Fight Vs Ben Askren Sold 1.5 Million PPVs & Generated $75 Million (VIDEO)
Jake Paul is making some shocking claims after yet another viral knockout in his professional boxing career.
On Sunday, Paul took to social media and said that Saturday night’s Triller Fight Club event sold 1.3 million PPVs, which means it generated about $65 million.
He would later jump on Twitter and state that it was actually 1.5 million buys, which generated $75 million. That number alone would put it with the likes of Floyd Mayweather-Miguel Cotto fight as the 12th highest PPV of all-time.
The 24-year-old is set to make millions more in box office money on top of his reported $690,000 fight purse. He didn’t have to put in much work to defeat Ben Askren as a simple one-two over the top left the retired UFC fighter unable to continue in the eyes of the referee.
Afterwards, he said: “I told y’all I was gonna do it in the first round. I told y’all I’m a real fighter.
“I don’t know how many times I’ve gotta prove myself that this is for real.”
