Mirror Fighting reports, Paul will finally go on a well-earned vacation after six years. But has this taken a break from boxing is so he can focus on promoting Amanda Serrano, one of the best female fighters.

Serrano last fought Miriam Gutierrez and outclassed the Spaniard. She now looks to take on another boxing great in Katie Taylor. This super-fight is years in the making and fans may finally get to see the two face each other in the ring.

This is the reason Jake Paul is taking a seven-month-long hiatus from boxing, so he can focus on getting the fight for Serrano and promoting it. Earlier this year, Paul signed Serrano to his promotional company, Most Valuable Promotions.

Serrano seems quite happy with MVP and Paul and holds them in high regard for helping her earn higher paydays than she used to.
