While the betting lines for the boxing match between Ben Askren and Jake Paul continue shifting, Ben Askren made a wager that could have permanent consequences.
Via Twitter, Askren, who the oddsmakers view as the underdog, raised eyebrows after posting, “If Jake Paul wins this fight, I’ll tattoo his name on my ass.”
Bets of the flesh haven’t worked out so well in the past. At UFC 196, UFC commentator Jon Anik said he would get a “209” tattoo if Nate Diaz defeated Conor McGregor.
Upon Diaz submitting McGregor in the second frame, Anik then visited a nearby tattoo parlor to prove he’s a man of his word and become a walking billboard for Stockton, California.
If the YouTube influencer turned professional boxer can outclass the much older former mixed martial arts champion and Olympic wrestler in the ring on April 17, 2021, everyone will soon thereafter be clamoring to see where the sun doesn’t shine on Askren.
