Now, Paul has boosted his reputation after being sent down the canvas with just one minute and 20 seconds on the clock.

The 24-year-old catch caught the 36-year-old Escrane with a sweet right hook, which sent the veteran fighter down immediately.

Stunned and dizzy, Escairen is back on his feet but fails to convince the referee of his health and so the bout is almost called off as soon as it starts.

Paul appeared to be overcome with emotion upon confirmation of his victory, causing a huge roar before falling to his knees.
