Is that it then?
Can we finally start calling this dude a genuine boxer now?
We'll let you be the judge.
Jake Paul has only gone and done it.
The trash-talking YouTuber has stunned the boxing world by beating Tyron Woodley in their highly-anticipated grudge match.
Despite being the overwhelming bookies' favourite heading into the bout, Paul still managed to deliver when it mattered most, handing Woodley his first professional boxing defeat.
With Woodley boasting far more combat experience, it's hard to argue that producing a victory over a former UFC champion isn't an impressive feat.
It also means 24-year-old Paul remains undefeated as he continues to shake up the sport of boxing.

39-year-old Woodley, who came into the bout in terrific shape, look destined to finish the fight in the fourth round when he came out all guns blazing.
Paul somehow managed to survive Woodley's rapid flurry of strikes.
And when T-Wood gassed out, that's when the former Disney Channel star (I know, can't believe we're saying that) decided to launch an attack of his own.
To be fair to Paul, he actually looked like a decent boxer - not amazing, but decent.
Bobbing and weaving under the bright lights in Cleveland, Paul avoid Woodley's advances for the entire eight rounds.
And in the judges' eyes, that was enough to win the fight.

While some huge names from both boxing and MMA can't wait to get their hands on Paul, it appears there's only one fight to make now for promoters.
With Tommy Fury calling Paul our earlier in the card, it seems only a matter of time before those two settling their differences inside the ring.
The duo haven't shied away form trading barbs on social media ever since Paul first called Fury out.
Now, they could finally lock horns after all.
That said, during their post-fight interviews Woodley and Paul agreed upon an immediate rematch if the former UFC champ got the "I love Jake Paul" tattoo once he was back in the dressing rooms.
We'll see if it genuinely happens.
