“This is great,” Asklen said after announcing the new punching bag. “I’m going to put this on the academy, and the kids will go crazy.”
Despite his position as one of the best welterweights of his generation, Asklen was never known for his boxing and instead achieved his success with his world-class wrestling skills. Nevertheless, he is convinced that his hands are sharp enough to do Paul’s fairly simple task in the ring.
“My goal in the fight wasn’t to box someone,” Asklen told TMZ Sports while previewing the fight with Paul. “My goal was to get over punches and kicks and achieve takedowns and 99% of the time. Obviously, unfortunately, sometimes it didn’t work. [against Jorge Masvidal].. My training was very focused on it. That said, obviously I need to change what I’m doing a little wisely. But listen, he loves YouTube stars. I will beat him. “
“I’m not blessed with great power,” continued Asklen. “I have muscle fibers that contract incredibly slowly, so I don’t think it’s better to hit him and fall down, but it’s like the eight-round process he noticed. I think,’Holy sh * t, I’m in the fight. I don’t really like this. I’m a spoiled rich kid. I’m going to find an easy way. “TKO .. Round 6, Round 7, something for that effect. “
