Paul sent Ben Askren to the canvas with a straight right hand midway through the first round of their cruiserweight fight.

Even though Askren got up, referee Brian Stutts decided Askren couldn't go on, giving Paul a first-round knockout at 1:59.

The 24-year-old Paul celebrated his 3-0 professional record by doing pushups in the ring.

"It's been four months. I've been in training camp every day," Paul said on Triller after the fight. "I deserved that s---. This is the craziest moment of my life.

"I told y'all I was going to do it in the first round. I told y'all I'm a real fighter. I don't know how many times I've got to prove myself this is for real."
