Jake Paul’s popularity is breaking the boundaries and confines of the country’s borders. In a recent twist of fate, Neeraj Goyat, a professional boxer from India, has called out ‘The Problem Child’ for a fight. The update comes after Jake’s next fight was announced recently, scheduled for March 2 next year in Puerto Rico. The event will also feature Amanda Serrano defending her titles against IBF mandatory challenger Nina Meinke

However, Jake’s opponent hasn’t been announced at the moment, leaving fans to speculate who the opponent could be. Meanwhile, Paul turned to his Instagram story today to share a video from 18-4-2 Goyat, calling him out to fight a “real boxer.” While the chances of Goyat being his next opponent aren’t totally out of the question, there hasn’t been any official confirmation from Jake’s corner.
