Jake Paul beat Nate Robinson with a brutal second-round knockout.

The YouTube star moved to 2-0 in his professional boxing career with a vicious second round stoppage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Paul dropped the former NBA player, fighting for the first time as a pro, with a big overhand right hand in the first round.

Robinson survived the count and reached the bell but was felled again early in the second before a third big shot, again with the right, saw the referee wave it off.

“This means a lot to me. It feels good to win”, Paul said before name-checking UFC superstar Conor McGregor and fellow YouTuber KSI, who infamously fought his brother Logan in 2018 and 2019, as possible future opponents in the ring.

The pair were part of the undercard for Mike Tyson’s comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr, with the former world heavyweight champion fighting for the first time since 2005.
