What have they said?
Ben Askren: "If I want to beat up an amateur boxer, it ain’t gonna take me more than three months of training to do so.”
“I did say when I retired, I will never be a full-time fighter but if something interesting comes up, I’d be willing to accept that.
"This falls into that category I think. I’m not going to be a full-time boxer but I got an interesting opportunity and I’m going to take advantage of it."
Jake Paul: "You f****d up, Ben by taking this fight. April 17, I promised my team, my family, my brother who is there right next to you right now, I promise to make you go down as history as the world’s worst UFC fighter."
