    DILL BREAKER

    Dillon Danis called out Jake Paul and vowed to ‘put this c*** out cold’ after the YouTuber knocked out Ben Askren.

    Paul moved to 3-0 in his professional boxing career after the first-round finish over Askren.

    And already he was challenged by 2-0 Bellator welterweight Danis, a sparring partner and gym-mate of Conor McGregor.

    He tweeted: “It’s on 100% send me the contract let’s do this i’m gonna put this c*** out cold.”

    Paul, 24, initially offered Danis, 27, the opportunity to fight him earlier in the year.

    But the jujitsu black belt was unable to accept amid a knee injury which needed surgery.

    Seemingly fit and recovered, Danis shared a private Instagram message he sent to Paul, calling the social media star out.

    He wrote: “let’s do this c*** send me the contract.”

    ROB DA BANK

    UFC star Robert Whittaker has called out Jake Paul for a fight after the social media personality knocked out ex-MMA champ Ben Askren.

    The Aussie star, 30, was also in action on Saturday night for the ESPN 22 headliner against Kelvin Gastelum.

    In a press conference after his win in the octagon, the former UFC middleweight champion was told about Paul's victory, which was captured by Sky Sports.

    A shocked Whittaker replied: Ben Askren's not known for his boxing, is he?

    "But good on him (Paul). He's doing his thing."

    Asked if he would consider fighting the vlogger for the half a million pounds Askren is believed to have received, Whittaker happily threw his hat in the ring.

    "I'd fight him for less," he replied with a laugh.

    LO BLOW 

    Logan Paul sent a message to Floyd Mayweather by sharing a video of his brother Jake's brutal KO of Ben Askren.

    YouTuber Jake stopped the retired UFC welterweight with a one-two combination in round one of their Triller pay-per-view headliner.

    Ringside was big brother Logan, who was due to face Mayweather in an exhibition bout in February.

    It has since been rescheduled to allow fans to attend but no official date or venue has been announced.

    Logan, 26, attempted to strike fear into all-time great Mayweather, 44, as she shared a video of Jake's highlight-reel KO.

    He captioned the post: "@floydmayweather you see this."

    TOUGH ASK 

    Ben Askren admitted 'it's f***ing embarrassing' as he reflected on his first-round loss to YouTuber Jake Paul.

    The former UFC welterweight was knocked out after two minutes following a one-two combination.

    Askren was subject to ridicule online as he was stopped by the social media star – but later admitted it was justifiable.

    He said: "It's probably deserved. I got knocked out by Jake Paul, it's f***ing embarrassing."

    Paul moved to 3-0 in his professional boxing career, all by KO and celebrated with rapper Snoop Dogg, who also commentated.

    He said: "Just a couple of years ago, my teachers were making fun of me in class, telling me I can't do nothing, telling me I wasn't smart.

    "My schoolmates making fun of me. I used to landscape. I just had a dream and I chased it and I worked hard.

    "To think that I'm standing here next to these legends, these legends right here, it's unbelievable."

    DOGG ROUNDS

    Snoop Dogg said 'Dana White, where's my money at?' after Jake Paul knocked out Ben Askren – as the rapper won his $2million bet.

    YouTuber Paul closed the show with a dramatic right hand in the first round against Askren, who retired from the UFC in 2019.

    Beforehand, UFC president White told Mike Tyson he would be willing to bet $1m the social media star lost.

    Paul, 24, and rap royalty Snoop Dogg, 49, asked to up the wager to $2m – though their call was never asked.

    But it still did not stop the West Coast star from calling out the UFC boss and campaigning for his proposed winnings.

    DIVE BAR

    This… THIS is the crippling low blow to Ivan Redkach's 'groin' that folded him into the floor, demanded a stretcher carry him out and caused the fight to be waved off..

    TTTTHHHHIIIISSS:

    PROGRAIS WINS DECISION

    The referee sends the fight to the cards to be decided and the judges rule: 60-54, 59-54 and 59-54.

    Almost ironic that the only genuine fight on the show ends in completely fake fashion.

    Just when the taste in your mouth could not get worse.

    Rock, rock, rock bottom.

    Oh no, wait, Justin Beiger is on now…

    ROUND SIX

    Redkach has taken a dive after getting his ribs grazed by a bodyshot.

    Just when you thought this show could not get any worse.

    Prograis is waiting for a decision while Redkach continues to feign injury.

    Redkach is getting carried out on a stretcher despite not getting punched anywhere.

    He must assume everyone has already turned off and he won't get spotted cheating.

    ROUND SIX: REDKACH DOWN

    Prograis grazes with a body shot and Redkach collapses.

    But the blue-haired ace grabs his groin and claims it was an illegal low blow.

    The replays make it look like a fair body shot but the referee – who looks a real veteran – believes it was a groin shot.

    Redkach has five minutes to recover but he is looking for a way out. He was not even hit.

  • Wally Downes Jr

    ROUND FIVE

    Redkach is getting chinned too much by Prograis and will go over soon.

    Beautiful defensive work from the American former champion too.

    Prograis has earned 850,000 dollars for tonight's shift and earned every penny of it buy selling his soul to this shoddy set-up.

  • Wally Downes Jr

    ROUND FOUR

    Prograis rocks Redkach again and piles in with his booming left hand.

    The blue-barneted underdog is bleeding fromacouple of places around his eyes and hairline.

    But the camera work is so bad you cannot really see.

    Cannot miss the huge shots Prograis lands there as Redkach's legs stiffen and he is whacked again but is saved by the bell.

  • Wally Downes Jr

    ROUND THREE

    Prograis throwing wild shots and Redkach is dodging them easily.

    The commentary team have barely covered the action at all, focusing exclusively on Snoop Dogg getting stoned after the show…

    ROUND THREE

    Prograis vs Taylor was the fight of 2019, elite technical boxing with ridiculous heart and theatre.

    Even in defeat the New Orleans man took so much credit and respect.

    So fans are worried about his career landing him here on a much maligned show…

  • Wally Downes Jr

    ROUND TWO

    Prograis hurls his heavy left hand for the first couple of times and has Redkach stumbling backwards.

    Kedkach hurt with a bodyshot but does not take a knee or count.

    Another looping left hand lands on Redkach's blue head but the Ukraine slugger hits back as the session ends.
