With Paul moving to Puerto Rico, what could it mean for the fight? Until now, there has been no update on the new date for the exhibition bout.

Logan Paul explains why he is going to Puerto Rico

Until now, the internet sensation had been training in his gym. Moreover, he had not yet started his full-fledged fight camp. However, this move showed he is taking his training to the next level. So why Puerto Rico of all places?

Paul explained his decision by saying, “Puerto Rico makes sense because you enter training camp for two to three months straight at a time where you can’t do anything anyways. I can’t go out and enjoy that Miami night life, I can’t go out and enjoy that LA night life.”

This comment shows how seriously ‘The Maverick’ is taking his training ahead of the fight. He wants to avoid any distraction that could deter his preparations. Therefore, it makes sense for Paul to shift base to another country.
