Jake Paul, just shy of turning 28, is in fight mode. With his highly anticipated clash against Ryan Bourland mere days away, the “Problem Child” has been putting in the work, assuring fans of an electrifying showdown. On March 2nd, the young fighter squares off against Bourland, currently at camp in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The event also features Paul’s friend, Amanda Serrano, facing Nina Meinke in the main event.

While Paul has framed the occasion as a tribute to Serrano’s Puerto Rican roots, it’s also his chance to inch closer to title fights, the future battleground of his boxing career. Facing off against Bourland, who boasts a 17-2 record, marks Paul’s third pro-opponent, following encounters with Tommy Fury and Andre August. With the stakes higher than ever, Paul’s been relentless in his training, aiming to leave his opponent flat on his back. However, there might be trouble now that Bourland has received support from Paul’s rival, Nate Diaz.

But it seems that Diaz wants to get his revenge on the YouTuber through Bourland. Recently he even called the boxer, and although the details of the call remain unknown, it raises a lot of questions about its impact on the upcoming match-up. Bourland himself shared the screenshot on his Instagram account, writing, “Nate Diaz supporting Ryan Bourland. Thanks for the support fam @natedaiz209.”

It seems that the Stockton fighter is hoping Paul receives his second career loss come March 2nd.

Dillion Danis’ surprising revelation about Bourland

Dillon Danis, seeking to regain attention after his controversial fight with Logan Paul, has taken a jab at Jake Paul’s next opponent.
