Re-live all the action after YouTube star Jake Paul sensationally beat former UFC fighter Ben Askren at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Paul dispatched Askren inside one round on a star-studded night which saw Snoop Dog perform.

The YouTuber turned boxer Paul improved his record to 3-0 in impressive fashion as he stopped his more experienced opponent.

Askren, who made his name in UFC, was breached by a left jab before a right hook sent him to the canvas. He tried to continue, standing on the eight count, but the referee waved the fight off.

On a bizarre undercard Regis Prograis beat Ivan Redkach by TKO, Steve Cunningham outboxed UFC heavyweight Frank Mir, while billionaire British businessman Joe Fournier also earned a win. Re-live all the action live below:
