Jake Paul vs Ryan Bourland and Amanda Serrano vs Nina Meinke: Live updates and results



Moment Jake Paul delivers first-round TKO in Ryan Bourland fight

Jake Paul scored a first-round TKO of Ryan Bourland on Saturday, stopping the professional boxer before Amanda Serrano’s title defence was cancelled at the last moment.

Paul, 27, quickly split his fellow American’s guard with repeated jabs, before adding right hands to the body and head to wobble Bourland, 35, against the ropes. Bourland, who entered Puerto Rico with a 17-2 pro record, scrambled around in a bid to recover, but he was eventually overwhelmed in the corner.

As Paul poured on punches, Bourland fell to his knees, and the referee stepped in to wave off the cruiserweight bout. With that, YouTube star Paul moved to 9-1 as a pro. The result in San Juan marked his second straight win against a pro boxer, with the “Problem Child” having knocked out Andre August in round one in December. Before Saturday (2 March), Bourland had not fought since September 2022.

Paul vs Bourland was set to be followed by a main event between Serrano and Nina Meinke, but the unified featherweight title fight was cancelled in a bizarre scene. After Paul stopped Bourland, Meinke entered the ring in her fight gear, while Serrano arrived in sunglasses and a hoodie. A ring announcer revealed that the main event had been cancelled, and that the crowd would receive 100 per cent refunds.

Champion Serrano, 35, said she had not been cleared to compete by doctors, owing to an eye injury. Re-live updates from Paul vs Bourland and the bizarre cancellation of Serrano vs Meinke, below.

It is plausible that Paul and co knew throughout the day that Serrano would be unable to compete, but decided that the crowd would be even more hostile if there had been an earlier announcement of the main event being cancelled.

That is pure speculation, but it is conceivable. The crowd booed Serrano pretty heavily at times during her announcement.
