Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta – In a cruiserweight contest, Youtube star Jake Paul (3-0, 3 KOs) wiped out former Bellator and ONE champion Ben Askren (0-1), who was making his pro debut, in one round.
Paul was landing the hard punches in the first. He was putting his punches together a lot better than Askren, who was getting tagged. A big hook sent Askren down very hard. Askren got to his feet and tried to continue, but the referee felt he was unable to fight on and waved off the bout.
Askren was not very happy with the stoppage.
