Jake Paul landed a stunning one-punch knockout to dramatically drop Tyron Woodley to the canvas and end their rematch inside six rounds on Saturday night in Florida.

Paul was cut and bleed heavily before he connected to secure a brutal triumph.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer won their first fight via split decision earlier this year but concluded this rivalry in the most emphatic possible way, by blasting the former UFC champion to the floor.

Woodley had vowed to be more aggressive than in their first fight, and had the incentive of a $500,000 bonus if he won by knockout, but the crisper punches were coming from Paul.

In the sixth round, Paul launched a right hand which landed flush on Woodley’s jaw, and face-planted his opponent to the canvas.

It was a sensational knockout which the social media superstar celebrated by leaping onto the ropes.

The undercard featured an NBA vs NFL match-up between Deron Williams and Frank Gore, and Amanda Serrano will set up a huge fight with Katie Taylor next year after her win.
