Pete Davidson called out Jake Paul and Ben Askren in a viral monologue ahead of their boxing match, where he roasted both of the fighters.
The SNL comedian, who is rumoured to be dating Bridgerton’s Phoebe Dynevor, stole the show with his joke-filled monologue which went viral.
The pre-fight segment sees Pete roasting both of the fighters before they took to the ring, with YouTuber Jake winning against former MMA fighter Ben within the first round.
Pete started off the broadcast by saying: “You can tell how professional this event is by, um, them having me here.”
He continued: “We are backstage at Jake Paul's dressing room, or locker room, if you want to call it that.
“And today's a really wild day for boxing because it just shows how low it's truly sunk.
"Today proves a fact, that if you have enough followers you can do whatever you f***ing want. Maybe Pewdiepie will cure cancer. And Charli D'Amelio will become a surgeon. Who knows?
"Tonight, we have a bout between Ben Askren who, I don't know who that is, still, and I've been reading up on him all week, and Jake Paul and, you know, they both suck but at least somebody's going to get hurt."
