According to multiple reports, Triller (the company putting on the bout) has an all-star lineup set for fight night on April 17. The broadcast is looking more like Coachella than a boxing match, which will include a TON of top musicians.

As you know, Jake Paul is scheduled to take on former UFC fighter Ben Askren, after shocking the world and knocking out NBA star Nate Robinson cold.
This isn’t the first time Triller has lit up fight night with awesome musical performances — during the Mike Tyson, Roy Jones Jr. fight — there were performances by Wiz Khalifa, French Montana, and Swae Lee.

Plus, the video app has brought in Emmy winner Bert Marcus to direct the broadcast — which is going to be more like a Hollywood Awards Show!
“This event is more like making a tentpole movie than a boxing match,” Triller’s Ryan Kavanaugh told The Hollywood Reporter.
He continued, “By bringing in the creative genius Bert Marcus and pairing his unique story-telling vision with his unmatched shooting style, the Fight Club event is going shock and awe people. We are giving the world something that has never been seen or done before.”
The goal is to create an event that “mixes pop culture phenoms, legends, and rising stars; we are giving the world something that has never been seen or done before,” Ryan told Billboard.
Jake Paul is also pumped about having JB in the mix, tweeting, “Justin I love you. We’re breaking PPV records April 17th. Belieb that!”
The event is shaping up to be a HUGE moneymaker — after the previous Mike Tyson bout which featured performances and the fight — brought in 1.6 million pay-per-view buys and $80 million in revenue.
Ding. Ding. Ding.
