Jake Paul has fought three times as a professional boxer and has three wins under his belt, as he knocked out Ben Askren at 1:59 of the first round at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Saturday night.
The 24-year-old popped a jab and took out the former MMA champion with a thudding right hand to notch his third consecutive stoppage.
Social media, as expected, went into a frenzy for Paul's victory.

It’s Ben’s responsibility to execute, but you would just hope that person coaching him in boxing would have driven home that the 1 thing not to do is open yourself to counter rt. since Paul had shown he had one in last fight. #TrillerFightClub— Teddy Atlas (@TeddyAtlasReal) April 18, 2021
