In the wake of his triumphant unanimous decision over Nate Diaz this past August, Most Valuable Promotions (MVP) and DAZN have dropped the exciting news: International sensation Jake “The Problem Child” Paul (7-1, 4 KOs) is gearing up for another fight on December 15th. This will be Paul’s ninth professional showdown and fans worldwide can catch all the action on DAZN.
Ready to cement his legacy, this December will be a testament to Paul’s determination and drive to achieve greatness. Remember that time he took a slight stumble against Tommy Fury in February with a nail-biting split decision? Well, he bounced right back, conquering Nate Diaz in August with a clear-cut unanimous nod. In a mere span of three years since turning pro, Paul’s trophy shelf has been graced with numerous awards like ESPNRingside’s 2021 Knockout of The Year, Sports Illustrated’s 2021 Breakout Boxer of the Year, and the 2022 Viral Moment of the Year by ESPNRingside. And, if that wasn’t enough, he’s grinning from the cover of Sports Illustrated’s August 2023 edition titled “The 50 Most Influential Figures in Sports”. All this for his sterling performance in the ring, game-changing efforts for pay parity in boxing, and his unwavering backing for female fighters and rising boxing talents via Most Valuable Promotions, a venture he shares with MVP co-founder Nakisa Bidarian.
Jake Paul chimed in, “Eight fights deep and look who’s the talk of the town! From headlining colossal events to smashing records, the road’s been a thrill. Every PPV is a step closer to my dream – becoming a world champ. So, grab some popcorn for December 15th – you’re in for a treat!”
Nakisa Bidarian, the brains behind MVP, lauded, “Jake’s unmatched charisma and universal appeal have cemented him as boxing’s shining star. His impressive track record in just eight professional fights bears testimony to his potential to transform boxing’s landscape. Partnering with DAZN, we’re psyched to bring the Jake Paul phenomenon to fans worldwide this December.”
DAZN’s North American CEO, Joe Markowski, echoed the sentiment, “Jake Paul is dynamite, both inside and outside the ring. With a lineup boasting names like Ryan Garcia, Devin Haney, Regis Prograis, Sunny Edwards, Bam Rodriguez, and the main man Jake Paul, DAZN’s December schedule is all set to sizzle!”
And if you thought that was all MVP had up its sleeve for this year, think again! MVP, in collaboration with DAZN, is set to showcase its stellar roster, including the indomitable Amanda Serrano (45-2-1, 30 KOs), the undisputed featherweight champion, and seven-division world champion. She’s readying to go toe-to-toe with WBO contender Danila Ramos in an important 12-round, three-minute round unified featherweight title fight on October 27th at the Caribe Royale Resort in sunny Orlando, Florida. And guess what? This will be followed by a showcase of MVP’s Most Valuable Prospects III, putting the spotlight on boxing’s next big things.
