Jake Paul scores first-round knockout over Andre August: ‘I manifested this’
Jake Paul made good on his promise of a knockout.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer improved his pro record to 8-1 with five knockouts with a first-round stoppage victory over cruiserweight Andre August in a main event fight on Friday night in Orlando, Florida.
The bout marked Paul’s first return to the ring since outpointing mixed martial arts legend and former UFC Championship contender Nate Diaz in 10 boxing rounds this past April.
Paul, 26, knocked out August in Round 1 with a right uppercut, dropping his foe’s pro record to 10-2-1 with five knockouts.
“I said first-round knockout all week,” Paul said in his post-fight interview after recording the third first-round knockout of his career.
“I manifested this. This is the power of manifestation. I said I needed to bring back the old ‘Problem Child,’ I’ve been too nice to these guys, letting them go to the later rounds,” he added.
Paul set up the right uppercut over the shorter August by leaning on his jab and smartly fighting from the outside.
He utilized his 6-foot-1, 76-inch reach advantages over the 5-foot-10 August, who is nearly 10 years his senior.
