Who supplied essentially the most memorable evaluation of Saturday’s combat between YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul and retired blended martial artist Ben Askren? Pete Davidson, clearly.

The “Saturday Night time Reside” forged member served as a reporter of types at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta with “SNL” off this previous weekend.

PAUL VS. ASKREN: How a lot did every fighter earn?

Davidson ripped each fighters and the overall state of boxing forward of the Paul-Askren bout. His full feedback:

You possibly can inform how skilled this occasion is by them having me right here. We’re backstage at Jake Paul’s dressing room, or locker room, in case you wanna name it that. Right now’s a very wild day for boxing as a result of it simply exhibits how low it is really sunk. I believe right now proves the truth that, you probably have sufficient followers, you’ll be able to really f—ing do no matter you need. I imply, perhaps [YouTuber] PewDiePie will treatment most cancers, and [Tik Tok star] Charli D’Amelio will develop into a surgeon. Uh, who is aware of?

Tonight, we’ve a bout between Ben Askren — who I do not know who that’s nonetheless, and I have been studying up on him all week — and Jake Paul. And, you recognize, they each suck however, you recognize, a minimum of anyone’s gonna get damage. Now again to you guys within the sales space, some actual announcers over there.

Sadly for viewers hoping to see a aggressive battle, the Paul-Askren combat lasted solely barely longer than Davidson’s monologue. Paul made fast work of Askren, dropping him with a tough proper hand within the first spherical. Askren struggled to regain his footing after taking the shot to the top, and the referee stopped the combat on the 1:59 mark.

Paul moved to 3-0 in his boxing profession, although his three victories have come in opposition to YouTuber AnEsonGib, former NBA participant Nate Robinson and Askren, who was all the time referred to as extra of a wrestler than a striker. He can probably maintain incomes huge paychecks as a novelty act, but when he desires to be taken significantly, he must face an actual boxer in some unspecified time in the future.

No matter what Paul does subsequent, Davidson will in all probability nonetheless suppose he sucks.
