Jake Paul Defeats YouTuber AnEsonGib In Boxing Match In First Round
YouTube Jake Paul has defeated fellow content creator AnEsonGib in the first round of their highly anticipated boxing match.
The 23-year-old came out swinging in the opening round and was a fierce competitor. His opponent did his best to deflect the attacks but each knock to the head left him more and more dizzy.
The referee eventually called the match and awarded Paul, who boasts a whopping 19.7 million subscribers, the win on a technical knockout.
The YouTuber was ecstatic with the decision and his brother, fellow YouTuber Logan was seen cheering from the sidelines.
Jake then went to the ropes at pointed at KSI, another YouTuber, who fought Logan last year and won.
KSI, real name Olajide Olayinka Williams "JJ" Olatunji, won by split decision 56-55, 57-54, 56-55, despite Logan Paul outlanding KSI 61 to 56, according to CompuBox.

KSI then got into the ring to smack talk Paul. They mouthed off against each other until Paul told him that 'he's next', however KSI didn't seem to accept the challenge for another boxing match.
Looks like we'll have to 'watch this space' for an official confirmation about another YouTuber boxing match.
Paul will be happy that he won, not because of the accolade, but because it means he won't have to find somewhere new to live.
The YouTuber says he was going to bet his Team 10 house on his fight against AnEsonGib.
Team 10 is a group of aspiring social influencers who live with Paul, and will probably be collectively breathing a sigh of relief that they're not homeless.
One fan told Jake that they had bet two different people $100 (£77) that he would win. This must have got Jake all excited because he then responded with a photo of the Team 10 house.
He wrote on Instagram: "If you were smart, you would bet your whole house on it like me."
Replying to another fan, he ripped into Logan's coach Shannon Briggs. He posted: "My coach who is a legend @ShaneMosley but who is also very humble & realistic thinks I take him out in the 3rd [round] and he knows boxing like the back of his hand."
