First, Taylor won a wild, narrow 10 round decision over Serrano to remain unbeaten and retain her four lightweight world titles. The bout came with over 19,000 in attendance. And, it was Paul and his Most Valuable Promotions along with Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing that helped generate the biggest event in women’s boxing history.

Now, Paul will now turn back to his own ring exploits later in the Summer. And, as we wrote previously, he’s looking to continue his fledgling career as fighter off a December rematch win over former UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley by brutal, one punch KO. That improved him to 4-0 on his brief professional career, but critics point to the fact that he hasn’t faced an actual boxer among his opponents so far.
“August I’m back baby. Let’s get it,” Paul said in late March to the camera after completing punching of the pads. And with that, let the speculation continue on when we’ll see him in the ring and against whom? That question still wasn’t answered on Sunday by the former actor, now turned boxer and promoter, but you have to believe that we’ll know whom it is soon enough.
As for other particulars, like where and on what platform, we’ll have to find that out, as well.
Showtime televised his two fights in August and December with Woodley on PPV, but he previously fought on the Triller App and their PPV arm. However, the network’s sports boss, Stephen Espinosa, has previously confirmed that they don’t, yet, have a deal for another Paul bout.
So, the curiosity on those points builds.
Then again, if Paul isn’t fighting a legitimate boxer, there’s only so much that boxing fans will continue to care about any of the teases of him fighting, again.
