Jake Paul secured a stunning, first-round knockout in his fight with Andre August on Friday, stopping the boxer with a clean uppercut in Orlando.

The fight marked Paul’s second outing against a professional boxer, following his points loss to Tommy Fury in February, and the YouTube star fared much better on this occasion.

Paul, 26, was light on his feet from the opening bell, slinging straight rights at the mid-section of August, before the 35-year-old landed a strong right hook to the head of his fellow American.

Out of nowhere, however, Paul snuck a brilliant right uppercut behind a jab to drop August badly. August, who entered the fight with a 10-1-1 record and five knockouts to Paul’s four, was unable to beat the referee’s count, signalling the end of the bout.

With the finish, which came at 2:32 of the first round, Paul improved his record to 8-1 (5 KOs). Re-live updates from Paul vs August and the undercard fights, below.
