Jake Paul is a famous social media personality, actor and comedian, and now he has added "undefeated boxer" to his list of achievements. 

The younger half of the famous Paul brothers has been making headlines as a budding boxer. On Saturday, the Youtube star faced off with former UFC fighter and ONE welterweight champion Ben Askren in a licensed boxing match inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Only the third fight in his young professional boxing career, Paul predicted a first-round knockout of Askren, who in his 12-year MMA career was never known for his striking. And Paul stuck to his word -- the referee called a stoppage at 1:59 in the first round after Paul threw a straight right hand that hit Askren square in the face, throwing him into the canvas.

He continued his social media presence on Youtube where he currently has 20.3 million subscribers. Jake is the younger brother of Logan Paul, also a famous Youtuber who currently has 22.9 million subscribers. 

In 2018, Forbes reported that Jake earned $21.5 million from his videos and gags, landing him the second spot in the Highest-Paid YouTube Stars 2018 list. Logan was ranked 10th, earning $14.5 million.
