“On April 17th, I’ll be entering the ring Jake Paul, better known as social media superstar Logan Paul’s younger brother. Little Jake started “boxing” — wading into my turf, basically. He got lucky picking fights with a couple of other amateur fighters, so it’s time someone who’s actually been in the game teaches him a lesson. I linked up with SushiNobi to create this drop as a badge of honor for when the bell rings and we all get to revel in Jake catching an L!” – says Ben about his drop.
