Jake Paul LEADS ESPN's Knockout Of The Year Award Ahead Of Tyson Fury, Logan Paul Ends 'Debate' With His Response

Jake Paul has established a huge lead over WBC champion Tyson Fury in ESPN Ringside’s readers’ poll for the 2021 Knockout of the Year award.

The 24-year-old YouTuber-turned-boxer overcame a horrific cut on his forehead to stop rival Tyron Woodley in brutal fashion earlier this month.

The Problem Child extended his unbeaten boxing record to 5-0 after his hard-fought win at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.

Paul’s stunning knockout over Woodley earned him a place in ESPN’s Twitter poll for Knockout of the Year.

Fury’s destructive 11th-round KO win over Deontay Wilder in their trilogy fight was also nominated alongside Oscar Valdez’s KO of Miguel Berchelt back in February.

Logan Paul took to Twitter and claimed that it is ‘not up for debate’ that his younger brother should win the award, despite suggesting that he might be “biased.”

“Perhaps I’m biased, but a YouTuber knocked out a 5-time UFC champion in the cleanest way possible, I’m not sure this is up for debate,” he tweeted.

The Problem Child has since revealed that he has five names on his ‘boxing bucket list,’ including boxing legend Mike Tyson and UFC president Dana White.
