How to watch Jake Paul fight Ryan Bourland this weekend

Jake Paul (8-1, 5 KOs) takes another step on his long road to a legitimate title shot with a fight against Ryan Bourland (17-2, 6 KOs) this weekend. Paul, who has previously fought big names like Floyd Mayweather Jr. and a slew of MMA fighters, says he plans to fight several opponents at his experience level over the next few years, climbing the rankings until he earns a shot at a title the old-fashioned way. Bourland is a former Golden Gloves champion, but Paul is heavily favored. Paul knocked out his last opponent, Andre August, 28 seconds into the fight. Vegas has set the over-under odds for the fight at 1.5 rounds, meaning they suspect another early knockout.

Although Jake Paul's star power may be the main draw for the event, this card is actually headlined by Amanda Serrano (46-2-1, 30 KOs), who defends her unified women's world featherweight titles against Nina Meinke (18-3, 4 KOs). This will be Serrano's second time defending her titles in a fight scheduled for 12 three-minute rounds, rather than the usual women's 10 two-minute rounds. The fight takes place in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and will start live streaming on DAZN at 7:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, March 2. Here's everything you need to know to watch boxing online this weekend.
