Dana White recently put up $1 million saying that Ben Askren will beat Jake Paul in their April 17th boxing throw down. That bold claim was heard loud and clear by some people with big money to spend.
Snoop Dogg is now calling out White to put his money where his mouth is after Jake Paul replied. Paul bet $2 million that he will win, and he also challenged the UFC President to a boxing match too. The big money bets kept coming from there.
Triller CEO Ryan Kavanaugh tole The Ring that he’s gathered up people like Snoop Dogg and Bobby Sarnevesht to bet $10 million on Jake Paul in a fight against Dana White.
“We’re calling Dana White out officially. Triller, Snoop Dogg, me, and Bobby Sarnevesht will bet $10 million that Jake will win.”
Triller is more than happy to host this fight with “Typical boxing rules, six rounds, or more, three-minute rounds,” Kavanaugh said. “We challenge Dana to fight Jake, on a Triller Fight Club card, anytime this year. Dana can name the weekend. It can be a collaboration, we can do it on Triller, and then on the UFC platform […] We can figure out how to co-promote it on Triller and UFC.”
Snoop Dogg added a little fuel to the fire as he said: “Is Dana White man enough to put his money where his mouth is? Jake Paul will win.”
Dana White is no slouch. He’s twice as old as 24-year-old Jake Paul, but White does have amateur boxing experience. He’s also pretty proud to talk about how good he once was. We’ll have to see if he agrees to fight Jake Paul who has yet to lose as a pro boxer.
