The world reacts to Jake Paul’s knockout of Ben Askren

Boxing

Jake Paul took less than two minutes to knock out Ben Askren and claim his third pro boxing win on Saturday night. In the main event of a Triller card inside of Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Paul, a social media standout who made his name on YouTube and a variety of other platforms, defeated the former UFC fighter and Bellator and ONE champion in MMA with ease — requiring even less time than it took for him to defeat former NBA player Nate Robinson back in November.

Unsurprisingly, many took to social media in the aftermath of the knockout and the rest of the Triller card to share immediate reactions to the result. From Askren himself, to his former compatriots in MMA, to Paul’s associates in his world, here’s what they had to say.
