Paul improved to 3-0 with 3 KOs. Askren remains 19-2 in MMA but falls now to 0-1 as a professional boxer.

Snoop Dogg sure seemed impressed with Paul’s performance. The famed rapper told the YouTuber he was a “bad motherf*****” just as soon as Paul made his way over to him after the KO victory.

Comedian Ha Ha Davis posted, “They really letting Jake Paul put people in their final resting place in two rounds”.

Another user posted, “Please put Jake Paul in the ring with an actual boxer. Ben Askren was squaring up like he learned how to fight yesterday. I’m in awe bro. Take Ben out of every UfC game, revoke all wins, he’s done. Sleep. Donezo”.

The same user also likened Paul to ex-NBA star Nate Robinson who Paul knocked out in his last fight.

Regardless, Paul keeps winning fights and he’s probably the most popular professional boxer in the world today not named Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao.
