Jake Paul mocks Ryan Garcia after world title challenger's furious call-out | Boxing | Sport

Ryan Garcia has promised to end Jake Paul’s boxing career after he felt disrespected by the former YouTuber. After defeating Ryan Bourland in the first round of his tenth professional fight on Saturday night, Paul couldn’t resist teasing Garcia.

The world title challenger was so angry that he posted a voice note on X (formerly Twitter), vowing to fight Jake Paul and retire him from boxing.

Jake Paul made quick work of Bourland in his second fight since his loss to Tommy Fury last year, winning by a first-round stoppage. On paper, Bourland should have been one of the toughest opponents of Paul’s young career as he was a Golden Glove winner as an amateur and had an impressive 17-2 professional record.

After the fight, the outspoken Paul said he felt he was on his way to becoming a world champion thanks to his win. He then called out one of the greatest boxers of our time; Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

Canelo, a former lineal and unified world champion across two weights, is set to defend the undisputed super-middleweight title against Jaime Munguia on May 4 in Las Vegas. So, it’s unlikely he’ll be paying much attention to Paul’s call-out.

World-class boxer Garcia, who’s keen to take on Paul, took to social media platform X (formerly Twitter), stating: “I can’t do this s***. I feel so f****** bad for introducing Jake Paul to boxing, I f***** up. I can’t allow this to happen. I can’t, I can’t. He’s disrespecting our sport, he’s disrespecting everything. I dunno, call my team, Jake. F*** you.”

Paul responded at his post-fight press conference, saying: “That boy is getting that s*** straight from Colombia. Ryan, I love you, but you’ve gotta chill out. You seem like you’re losing your mind, acting thirsty and desperate, saying you’re a billionaire when you have one money fight. If you do wanna fight, to me that’s light work. You’ve got no footwork, and as long as I’ve been in the game I’m a better boxer than you.” He then posted a screenshot of boxer Mario Antonio Macias’ Boxrec page, titled “Ryan Garcia’s tenth opponent”. He later commented: 

Though Jake Paul was initially only the main undercard act at Saturday’s event, his fight got an unexpected promotion. The headliner fight of Amanda Serrano vs Nina Meinke had to be cancelled just before they took to the ring.

Serrano, having scratched her cornea the day before, failed to receive medical clearance and could not fight. The Puerto Rican boxer was left devastated in front of her home crowd.

Refund options were provided by Paul, her promoter, for ticket holders while Meinke was assured of receiving her full payment despite the cancellation and a chance to reschedule the fight.
