JAKE PAUL obliterated former NBA basketball star Nate Robinson with a brutal second-round KO in Los Angeles.
Robinson faceplanted after a looping right in the second round and was out cold as the fight was finally waved off.
Medics and the referee rushed to Robinson's aid before after more than a minute he made it onto a stool.
Such was the brutality of the finish, music legend Snopp Dogg likened it to a 'Hood fight'.
Robinson had already being floored twice previous in the embarrassingly one-sided affair.
YouTube sensation Paul embarked on his boxing career with a victory over fellow social media celeb AnEsonGib in January.
And now he has made it two out of two with an emphatic victory – but it will leave questions to be asked on how these fights are sanctioned.
The first round was a dismal affair, with the referee warning both 'boxers' to stop wrestling and 'throw some punches'.
It was Paul who landed the most meaningful of these, when he floored Robinson with a huge right towards the end of the round.
And Robinson was face down again in the second round when Paul smashed him with the same shot.
The third knockdown soon came – and it was a brutal one at that.
Another looping right hand sent Robinson crashing to the canvas and to sleep.
The 36-year-old was laid out for almost a minute before being hauled onto a seat by the referee.
Speaking after the weigh-in, the ‘Problem Child’ Paul explained why he's so desperate to succeed inside the squared circle.
He added: “I love the sport, you know. I’m made for this. And to me, it’s an opportunity to prove people wrong.
“But it’s something I fell in love with, something I’m passionate about, something I’m good at, and I’m ready to take the world by storm."
This was the chief support for Mike Tyson's epic comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr.
