Paul has made several inroads into boxing. He has allowed fighters to secure bigger paydays for facing him. Tommy Fury made $6 million for beating Paul, which was more than all his boxing earnings combined. It was also done without facing someone seen as a pro boxer. 

The Problem Child has also elevated other fighters under his banner. He has been instrumental in Amanda Serrano’s success. Her fight with Katie Taylor was a sell-out in 2022 at Madison Square Garden. Although Serrano lost via a split decision, she will fight on the biggest stage on the Paul vs. Mike Tyson card. Paul’s inroads into boxing are winning him massive praise. 

“We want to make a great card in Utuado in this incredible facility. The alliance we’ve made with Jake Paul will continue to bear fruit because we have a list of gyms. We will be supervising the already fixed gyms so that they stay clean. The gym is the best place a young person can be. Here you learn to be courteous, respectful, humble, and disciplined. Mayor Jorge Pérez is committed to this gym and that is important,” Valcárcel said

“We all have violence inside. We try to organize that violence into educating it, to get young people out of using that violence in gangs, to kill, and to use it for other positive things; to educate them, to put on the gloves, to discipline it, and that the young person can use it to benefit himself, his family, his people, and Puerto Rico. This is extraordinary work that will bear much fruit. Every boy or girl who touches this gym is a seed,”Mr. Luis Batista Salas, Esq (WBO founder)

“We want to give a space for young people and people from the area where they can develop as individuals and athletes. As we open spaces like this for the youth, we get them off the streets, with new friendships, learning discipline, and a better quality of life. We have several initiatives going on with the WBO. The goal is to continue building throughout the country,” Francisco Correa (Boxing Bullies)
