‘The Maverick’, in just a short span of time, has risen to superstardom in the sport of boxing. He made his first professional ring walk in 2019 against fellow YouTuber KSI. But despite giving his best in that bout, Paul ended up on the losing vertical.

Yet, he stayed relevant to the boxing universe by topping the news charts for his antics. Despite being out of the game for a while, the Ohio native has kept himself active with rigorous training sessions. And after his fight announcement with Mayweather, the young gun pushed extensive boundaries with his training regimes.

That said, Paul wants to contend with the best in the business and after Floyd Mayweather, he wishes to go big by battling Conor McGregor.
