Jake Paul beat Ben Askren in the first round of their boxing match but many fans feel like something was off with how the fight ended.

During Saturday night’s Triller fight club event, Paul knocked down Askren about a minute into the fight with a looping right hand. After giving Askren a standing eight count, the referee felt that Askren couldn’t continue and stopped the fight.

Fans immediately questioned the refs’ stoppage and felt the fight was rigged for Paul.
