Paul, the YouTube star-turned-boxer, delivered Ben Askren into the canvas using a direct right hand midway through the first round of the cruiserweight battle on Saturday.
The 24-year-old Paul cared for Askren fast. Paul was individual for the very first moment while Askren chased him round the ring.
Afterward, as Paul started to get comfy, he made fast work of this 36-year-old Askren. Paul set up the right right using a jab, along with the good contact delivered Askren down. Following the struggle, Paul climbed into the air booth to celebrate Snoop Dogg.
“It has been four weeks. I have been in training camp daily,” Paul stated on Triller following the struggle. “I deserved this s–. This is the wildest moment of my entire life.
“I advisedy’all I had been going to get it done at the very first round. I advisedy’all I am a true fighter. I really don’t know how often I have to prove myself is for real.”
It had been the final two of Paul’s punches that did the damage. Paul told Snoop Dogg following the struggle he did not even get an opportunity to actually get heated up.
This came months following Paul knocked out basketball player Nate Robinson in the first round having a viral match during Triller’s first battle on the undercard of the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. primary event in November.
Paul headlined Triller’s second occasion and discharged of Askren — which makes his own boxing debut — nearly as rapidly.
Paul’s entry, where he walked to the ring with some type of imitation robot accompanying himmight have lasted more than the struggle itself. Paul’s win capped a night which has been an entire spectacle.
Roving reporter/comedian Pete Davidson stole the series, which makes fun of everybody and everything.
Following the struggle, Paul said he committed it to his own security guard, who died 10 days ago. It had been a part of a news-heavy week for Paul, who was enticed by TikTok celebrity Justine Paradise of forcing her to perform a sexual act without any permission in 2019. Paul’s lawyer told ESPN before this week which Paul”categorically denies the allegation.”
Boxing was secondary during the vast majority of the nighttime as musician after musician played, with only 1 fight over the initial two hours of this pay-per-view — a bout lasting two rounds, as Reykon refused to come from this corner to the next round against Joe Fournier.
It had been music and skits — that the series opened with a skit where Snoop Dogg and Jaleel White, enjoying with his iconic role as Steve Urkel from”Family Matters,” joking about bud — with hardly any real fighting going on at the battle club.
Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube recognized rapper DMX and boxing fantastic Marvin Hagler, who died earlier this season, throughout the series, for example with a movie honoring the late rapper.
The struggle featuring the very famous prospect, Regis Prograis, ended in controversy following his competitor, Ivan Redkach, was shot from the ring onto a stretcher after a punch out of Prograis from the sixth round.
