The Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) has kicked off, and it’s kicked off hard. It took Bader Samreen less than 90 seconds to finish his opponent, Viorel Simion, with a flurry of punches.
It was two vicious rights to the temple and a left hook from Samreen that dropped Simion to the canvas, where he struggled to get back to his feet. He was just a little too slow for the referee’s liking, and the fight was waved off at 1:26 of the first round.
