Jake Paul has been a beacon of hope in the combat sports industry for the underpaid fighters. His recent efforts to raise the minimum wage for the UFC fighters have earned him a lot of praise and appreciation from fans and experts alike. However, Paul’s effort to help the fighters earn more money is not limited to MMA.
One of the best pound for pound female boxers, Amanda Serrano is currently under contract with Jake’s ‘Most Valuable Promotions.’ She has a boxing record of 42-1-1. Serrano is the only female boxer to win championships in seven different weight classes. Hence, an athlete like that deserves all the money in the world and Jake Paul agrees.

During the interview, with host Ariel Helwani, Jake Paul confirmed that both fighters will have a guaranteed purse of in excess of a million USD. They will also get a slice of revenue in form of Pay Per View (PPV) points.
