YouTuber Paul x Boxer August

Jake Paul knocked out Andre August with a straight uppercut in the first round of his battle against him on Friday, December 15th, 2023 inside the Caribe Royale Resort, Orlando.

The bout was Paul’s second against a professional boxer, following his points loss to Tommy Fury in February, and he performed considerably better this time.


Paul, 26, was quick off the start, flinging straight rights to the midsection of August, before the 35-year-old delivered a powerful right hook to the head of his fellow American.

Paul was active in the first round, letting his hands fly. He struck the corpse with his right hand. August punched Jake in the side of the head, but Paul countered with a body shot. August was picking up on a number of Paul’s ruses. August was knocked out with a crisp uppercut who couldn’t beat the 10-count. Jake Paul scores a stunning highlight reel knockout.

However, Paul slipped a fantastic right uppercut behind a jab and down August hard.

August, who had a 10-1-1 record and five knockouts to Paul’s four, was unable to beat the referee’s count, signaling the conclusion of the fight.

Paul extended his record to 8-1 (5 KOs) with the victory, which occurred at 2:32 of the first round.

“I said first-round knockout all week, and I manifested this,” Paul remarked in the ring after his latest triumph, which came on the heels of a decision victory over UFC legend Nate Diaz in August.

“This is the manifestation power. I’ve been too generous to these people, allowing them to advance to the latter rounds. He went to sleep. [Next] I plan to face more boxing prospects, gain more experience, and spend more time in the ring under the spotlight. Said Jake Paul.

Paul, 26, acknowledges that he needs experience, but believes that he has the physical tools to become a world champion boxer.

“So, I’m on like this crash course to get all of those things, but it’s backed by this extreme athleticism. No boxer that has ever come to camp has beaten me in a jog, beaten me in a sprint, beaten me on the bench press, beaten me on the squats. So, that I have to my advantage, and I think I can get there in two to three years,” Paul told Farah Hannoun and Mike Bohn of MMA Junkie.

Is Jake Paul a professional now?


On the one hand, he has chosen his opponents wisely and has primarily earned his fighting name by defeating older MMA fighters and non-boxing sportsmen. On the other hand, he’s held his own against fighters who are still veterans of the combat sports.

If Paul actually wants to become a fighter with legitimate title aspirations, he’ll need to keep busy and log a lot of rounds. He does demonstrate some core skills, but they require a lot of sharpening to become something.

Before this bout, Paul’s sole experience in the ring with a boxer was a split-decision loss to Tommy Fury.

Paul continues to rack up wins, which should keep interest in his career booming, but he has a long way to go.
