Billionaire entrepreneur Joe Fournier had no trouble in an easy win over reggaeton artist Reykon tonight on the Triller Fight Club pay-per-view, scoring a TKO win after two rounds of what could charitably be called action.

The 38-year-old Fournier officially has a pro boxing record of 9-0 (9 KO) now, but hadn’t fought since 2016, and really has never fought an actual professional fighter, like, anyone remotely good. Tonight did not change that, as the 34-year-old Reykon pretty clearly had basically no boxing training and didn’t really belong in a ring.
Fournier pretty obviously carried this through the first round, throwing nothing with real intent while Reykon held his hands up at his temples. In the second round, Fournier unleashed a left hook that landed and dropped Reykon. The fight was really over there, but Reykon did get up. Fournier looked to the referee to make sure he was really letting the fight continue, and then dropped Reykon not long after with a delayed reaction right hand, Reykon taking a knee.
Reykon did manage to survive the round, but they stopped the fight in the corner after that second round, which was the right decision. Fournier may not be a class pro boxer, but he’s definitely trained in boxing and had far more of an idea what he was doing in there. It was a complete mismatch.
“He clearly hasn’t had much boxing experience and he stepped in the ring with me,” Fournier said. “The fact he even got up after that first knockdown, he’s a real legend. He’s got a lot of balls.”
As for what Fournier wants to do if and when he returns to the ring, he’s got a clear target.
“Everyone knows I’d love Jake Paul next,” he said.
