BREAKING: Jake Paul Knocks Out Ben Askren In The 1st Round of Their Boxing Match (VIDEO)

Boxing was back in a big way on Saturday night from Atlanta.

YouTube star turned pro boxer Jake Paul made his much anticipated return to the ring to take on former UFC fighter and multiple promotion welterweight champ Ben Askren atop a four-fight PPV card promoted by Triller Fight Club.

Paul was coming off an insanely viral knockout of former NBA player Nate Robinson last November. Askren, meanwhile, had never boxed professionally and was never known as a standup striker during his MMA career.

Even still, the time for talking was over and the two got it on.

Jake Paul wasted no time knocking Askren out in the first round.
