Ben Asken, the MMA fighter about to step into the ring with Jake Paul, says he will choke out the Youtuber turned boxer if fans donate to his GoFundMe.

"One of you guys can start a GoFundMe – how much would you give me to choke Jake Paul out with a guillotine? If the number's bigger than my purse, maybe I'll do it," Askren joked in a Triller video.

Askren also says the Jake Paul fight will be an easy win.

"Boxing, obviously it's different, but I told someone the other day that I'm really good at athletics. I wanted to be a really great wrestler. I won NCAA titles and made the Olympics," he said. "I wanted to be a good mixed martial artist. I won multiple belts in multiple organizations. If I want to beat up an amateur boxer, it ain't gonna take me more than three months of training to do so."

Jake Paul and Ben Askren will fight on April 17, starting around 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET.
