JAKE PAUL said his win over ex-NBA star Nate Robinson was ‘the most viral knockout moment in the history of boxing’.

Paul brutally left the former point guard – who had never once boxed before – out for the count in the second round of their fight.

The KO became a huge internet hit with poor Robinson trolled mercilessly with savage memes.

It was the second of Paul’s three wins, and the YouTuber argued it was not only the most famous of his career, but in boxing all together.

He told ESPN: “That event made everyone in their mom want to become a boxing promoter and a boxer.

“What we proved on that night is: we broke a pay-per-view record, eighth biggest pay-per-view in history.

“Everyone saw the dollar signs and just saw, oh, all we have to do is get a ring and put them in there and they can fight.

“It turned into this boxing frenzy that we see till this day, the impact that event has had is crazy.

“People coin my knockout as the most viral, the most seen knockout of all time in the history of the sport of boxing, just because of the digital age that we’re living in.

“It was the eighth biggest pay-per-view, but the hundreds and millions and thousands of tweets and Instagrams and TikToks and challenges that started from that.

“The Nate Robinson knockout, it’s coined as the most viral knockout moment in the history of boxing.”

Paul, 24, beat online rival ‘AnEsonGib’ in his professional boxing debut before doing the same against Robinson, 37.

The YouTuber in April then followed it up with a first-round finish against retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

It has set him up to fight Askren’s friend and former training partner Tyron Woodley, 39, on August 29.
