He recently contended with boxing’s greatest of all time, Floyd Mayweather, in an exhibition. This fight helped him go down as a household name in the sport and his fan base unquestionably reached sky heights.

Recently, ‘The Maverick’ inked a deal with WME, thus concluding his partnership with CAA. WME will now take charge of Paul in all his career areas including his entire entertainment suite, alongside digital partnerships and more.

This collaboration seems a win-win for both Paul and WME. This is because the former has an extensive fan base already on all his social handles and the latter, as a prime management firm, will only look to increase those numbers.

This partnership itself shows how big the celebrity boxing sensation has become ever since he shifted his focus to boxing. In his last fight against ‘Pretty Boy’ too, Paul raised many eyebrows with his performance.

A huge chunk of boxing pundits felt ‘The Maverick’ wouldn’t survive the wrath of Mayweather‘s power. However, Paul took the fight until the last bell and showcased his hard work. Now, from hereon, the 26-year-old will look to continue in the same vein.
