Boxing Reddit streams: In the past Reddit has proven to be a convenient platform to stream Boxing Pay-Per-View events live. But now, with increased awareness and stern actions taken against piracy, does the free streaming platform still exist?
All you need to know ahead of the eagerly-anticipated exhibition bout this weekend. Jake Paul will risk his reputation in a professional boxing bout against former MMA fighter Ben Askren in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The YouTube star has spent months trash-talking the decorated wrestler, with the pair coming to blows at a fiery press conference ahead of the bout at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Paul has fought twice professionally in the past, debuting with a victory over fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib before he knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson inside two rounds. “I see myself as an elite fighter right now,” Paul said. “A young prospect with a lot of motivation, a lot of hunger and I think people see me as [an] amateur. There’s sort of a big difference and there’s a big gap in between where I’m actually at and what the general audience will think, but I’m excited again to show my ability again on Saturday, against Ben who is a world-class fighter.”
Askren, 37, retired from mixed martial arts after he went 1-2 in the UFC, and was famously on the receiving end of the fastest knockout in UFC history when he was defeated by Jorge Masvidal at UFC 239.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the fight this weekend.

The Jake Paul vs Ben Askren live stream is gonna be wild
The Jake Paul vs Ben Askren live stream will be the talk of both the boxing and YouTube crowds this weekend, and believe it or not: Paul is expected to win this thing. That’s not just because Paul knocked out former NBA star Nate Robinson (prior to Tyson vs Jones Jr.), but because of Askren’s last fight.
The Paul vs Askren undercard has a bell time of 9 p.m. ET on Saturday, Nov. 28.
And since it’s a four-match card, we expect the main event of Jake Paul vs Ben Askren to start around 11 p.m. ET.
Yes, it almost seems like Ben Askren is the perfect challenge for Paul, as he was KO’d (quite violently, we should add) by UFC powerhouse Jorge Masvidal after 5 of their match. But before that, Askren wasn’t just a punchline.
There’s also gonna be some fun on the show. Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Doja Cat, Diplo, Doja Cat, Major Lazer and Saweetie are all set to perform. Oh, and we’re getting a treat: the first performance from hip-hop supergroup Mt. Westmore, which is comprised of Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Too $hort, and E-40.

Why Did They Ban Reddit Boxing Streams?
In order to take a stand against the global piracy artists and protect the service of official broadcasters, Reddit eradicated every other source that promised to deliver free action.
Reddit’s Stance on Copyright infringement:
Our policy is to close the accounts of users, in appropriate circumstances, who have repeatedly been charged with copyright infringement. Sometimes a repeat infringement problem is limited to one user and we close just that user’s account. Other times, the problem pervades a whole subreddit community and we close the subreddit.
For those who don’t know, free streams are illegal and those who provide such service deceives the mass on the pretext of rendering uninterrupted supply. Ever wondered what they get in return
