Jake Paul ready to cash in $1million bet after Ben Askren KO

Jake Paul has called out Dana White after the UFC president said he would bet a million dollars on the YouTuber losing to Ben Askren.

Paul knocked out the former MMA star in the first round of their fight on Saturday night.

The bout lasted less than two minutes with Askren saying the loss was "embarrassing".

Paul has now won all three of his professional fights, but in the lead up to the bout White was convinced he would lose.

He said: "Let's be honest, Jake Paul isn't a f***ing boxer. This guy's a f***ing YouTube kid."

"I hope you can bet on this thing, cause I'll bet a million dollars that he loses this f***ing fight.

"Bet a million dollars that he loses this fight. I hope we can bet on this."

After his victory Paul was quick to mock the UFC chief with a post on Twitter.

He said: "What should I buy with @danawhite ’s $1m? I’m thinking a Porsche 918 Spyder"

Tommy Fury has now been touted as a future opponent, although Paul wants his brother Tyson Fury involved on the card too.

"I'm going to plant the seed now," Paul told ES News. "Tommy Fury vs me and Michael Hunter against Tyson Fury on the same night."

The YouTuber has also hit back at those who doubted him insisting he is a "real fighter"

He said: "It's been four months. I've been in training camp every day. This is the craziest moment of my life.

"I told y'all I was going to do it in the first round. I told y'all I'm a real fighter. I don't know how many times I've got to prove myself this is for real."
