In an interview before the match, Jake Paul shared his dream of becoming a world champion. Talking about his recent success, he mentioned, “I beat a pro boxer in December in the first round, someone who’s been boxing their entire life. What did I do next? I went straight back to camp to get ready to face my next opponent, a professional boxer who has twice as many professional fights under his belt than I do,” as reported by MMA Wrestling.

The former YouTuber, now a professional fighter, defeated Ryan Bourland via TKO at 2:37 in the first round on Saturday night in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Paul utilized a strong jab and a powerful right hand close to the body early in the match. This set up a significant combination that had Bourland in trouble against the ropes. Paul continued his assault until the referee stepped in, ultimately stopping the fight.

Living and training in Puerto Rico, Paul had the support of the crowd. Adopting the nickname “El Gallo de Dorado,” he made a unique entrance in a rooster outfit. Fans were chanting “Gallo” during his entrance and the first round.

Expressing his joy in the post-fight interview, Paul said, “I wanted it to be a little longer to give the fans some more time. I’m just so happy to be in Puerto Rico. Y’all show mad love.”
