Jake Paul vs Ben Askren - LIVE!

YouTube sensation Jake Paul delivered an early knockout of former MMA star Ben Askren in Saturday night’s Triller Fight Club main event in Atlanta.

In a much-hyped boxing bout, ‘The Problem Child’ improved to 3-0 as a professional and sent out an emphatic statement as he stopped his vastly experienced opponent inside two minutes of the first round.

Askren saw his defences opened up by a left jab and was then hit flush with a crunching overhand right that sent him sprawling to the canvas.

‘Funky’ took the eight count and wanted to continue, but the referee deemed him in no fit state to do so.

On the undercard, Regis Prograis beat Ivan Redkach on a technical decision after a bizarre end to their fight in which the Ukrainian was stretchered out of the ring.

Steve Cunningham also defeated former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir and there were wins for billionaire London businessman Joe Fournier as well as undefeated prospects Quinton Randall and Junior Younan.
