It took YouTube star Jake Paul just two rounds to dismiss former NBA Slam Dunk champion Nate Robinson in their boxing match, Saturday in Los Angeles.

Paul knocked down Robinson twice in the first round and then put him away for good in the second, connecting with a right hook that sent the former NBA player crashing face first into the canvas.

This is Paul's second win in as many fights, after a first round demolition of AnEsonGib in Miami earlier this year.

Robinson, 36, was making his boxing debut. A three-time NBA Slam Dunk champion, he played for eight teams in his career, most notably the New York Knicks.
