The Triller Fight Club (TrillerFightClub.com) will be live from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia TONIGHT, and Triller and Fite TV have done an incredible job at making it a massive entertainment event. The highlights are obviously the fights, but in addition to the high-profile boxers, they have also recruited an all-star lineup of musical performances and celebrity appearances.
Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, Saweetie, The Black Keys, Major Lazer, and Diplo are all set to perform during the event. Viewers will also get the chance to see the world premiere performance from the new hip-hop supergroup, Mt. Westmore, featuring Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Too $hort, and E-40!
I got the chance to speak with Jake Paul ahead of his fight against Ben Askren this Saturday night. He told us what he’s excited to see this weekend and which musical performer he hopes to hang out with after the fight:
Music News & Rumors: Hey, Jake. Music News & Rumors here. How’s it going?
Jake Paul: Yes sir, it’s going good.
MNR: Your reputation as an internet star precedes you going into this weekend. What do you have to say to people who think you might not be ready for such a high profile fight?
Jake Paul: Tune in, and see if I am or not. Find out for yourself. TrillerFightClub.com. Order that pay-per-view ‘cause if you’re not watching, you’re the one missing out. Look, I’ve dedicated the past 18 months of my life to this, and we’ve been in serious training camps sparring world champions. So you’re gonna see if I’m ready or not.
MNR: I know you’re here for the fight, but there’s a lot of fanfare going on in Atlanta around the event. Have you seen the musical lineup and which artists are you most excited to see and maybe even meet this weekend?
Jake Paul: Yeah, that’s the beautiful thing about this event is that it’s more than just a fight. It’s entertainment all the way around, and I’m excited for all the performances. I think each and every one of them brings a different genre of music, and it’s gonna be incredible. I’m obviously a Belieber. Been a Belieber for a while, so excited to see Justin [Bieber] perform. He’s obviously a boxing fan, which is why I think he did this, and hopefully we get to kick it after.
MNR: There’s going to be millions of people watching online, and it’s projected to break some big pay-per-view records. But is it strange for you to be at such a massive venue like Mercedes-Benz Stadium even though there’s going to be an extremely limited crowd?
Jake Paul: Yeah, it’s weird. You know, I wish there would be a crowd. The fight energy isn’t the same. When I knocked out Nate Robinson, the whole arena was silent. Like, you could hear a pin drop. And it’s weird, but obviously, we’re making do with it. Hopefully for my next fight, we can have an audience and make it turnt.
