JAKE PAUL improved to three knockouts in as many fights by dispatching of Ben Askren in one round.
The YouTuber knocked out Askren in two minutes of their Triller pay-per-view headliner after a brutal one-two combination.
Paul added to his wins against online rival 'AnEsonGib' and retired NBA star Nate Robinson.
Much of the conversation online turned to who the social media sensation could face next.
Here, SunSport lists five potential opponents for Paul.
Conor McGregor's training partner and Paul have feuded for over a year and both called each other out.
Initially Danis, 27, was offered the fight ahead of Askren, 36, but the 2-0 Bellator welterweight was sidelined with a knee injury.
Seemingly fit and recovered after surgery, the jujitsu black belt challenged his rival online.
He tweeted: "it’s on 100% send me the contract let’s do this i’m gonna put this c*** out cold."
Danis, like Askren, is renowned for his grappling skills, but is younger than the ex-UFC fighter and has a natural grudge to settle with Paul.
KSI twice boxed Paul's brother Logan, drawing in a 2018 white collar bout before turning pro to win the rematch by split-decision.
Naturally, the Brit vlogger was then lined up to fight younger brother Jake, but KSI – real name Olajide William Olatunji – is yet to return to the ring.
KSI's trainer Viddal Riley even admitted he would not let his friend fight Paul until he had two or three tune-up bouts in preparation.
The history between the two leaves the decider always on the table, but KSI would have to begin thinking about a comeback soon.
Tyson Fury started the war of words between Paul and his half-brother, as he called for the pair to fight.
Despite a few verbals online, not much has come from the spat, but their celebrity following would make for pay-per-view success.
Love Island star Tommy, 21, is 5-0 in his career but has so far only faced journeyman, meaning Paul would be his hardest opponent.
But Paul has made it clear he is targeting MMA fighters instead, and Tommy does have a vast amount more experience in the amateurs.
Once both have built up their records a bit more, this could be one for their millions of adoring followers.
With Paul out to bring ex-UFC champions into the ring, Woodley is the perfect candidate.
He has just been released from the UFC, which permits him to make a move into boxing should he wish.
Woodley, 38, was in Askren's corner for the devastating first-round KO and would be desperate to avenge the loss.
The American is also a far more capable striker with knockout power and would provide Paul with a genuine test of his skill.
After Paul's second win, against Robinson, he went after McGregor and claimed to have a $50million offer waiting for him.
But the Irishman went on to lose to Dustin Poirier, with the pair set for an immediate rematch on July 10.
It means Paul's chances of prizing the southpaw – who made his boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather in 2017 – have taken a knock.
There is also far more for McGregor left to achieve in the octagon before he would think about fighting the digital phenomenon.
But, the former two-weight UFC champ is not one to turn down a mega payday, so will at least consider the lucrative proposal.
