He still seems open to competing in exhibition bouts, but there are a lot more things that keep ‘The Maverick’ active. However, his sudden shift to Puerto Rico has raised several eyebrows.

“Puerto Rico makes sense because you enter training camp for 2-3 months straight at a time where you can’t do anything anyways. I can’t go out and enjoy the nightlife. I can’t go out and enjoy the LA nightlife. Zoning in twice a year for four-six months is nice. And it’s nice to do it in Ddaro, f*** heaven on earth,” said Logan Paul.
