Jake Paul vs. AnEsonGib results: Jake Paul dominates Gib with first-round TKO
Jake Paul absolutely dominated his fight against AnEsonGib, defeating the fellow YouTube star with a first-round technical knockout.
AnEsonGib did not look ready for his professional boxing debut as he was put off his feet multiple times in the first round. The fight only lasted 2:18 before the referee called the fight over, giving Paul the quick victory in his first professional bout.
Paul’s brother Logan, who fought KSI in December and lost, was in the crowd and cheered Jake after the victory. KSI was also in the crowd and looked impressed by Jake’s win. He later entered the ring and exchanged words with Jake, who made it clear he wants a fight to avenge his brother’s loss.
“KSI’s next,” Paul said. “I didn’t have to f—ing win by two points. … You had to beat my bro by a made call.”
Paul simply told KSI, “Let’s make it happen.”
Nothing is official yet, but a fight between Jake Paul and KSI seems likely at some point.
