World champion Amanda Serrano hails Jake Paul after going on spending spree

Amanda Serrano has paid tribute to manager Jake Paul after buying two Rolex watches and a new house.

The Puerto Rican star signed a promotional deal with YouTube star Paul last year which has seen her compete under the Most Valuable Promotions banner. Since signing with Paul, Serrano has made two title defences against Yamileth Mercado and Miriam Gutierrez on the undercard of her manager's two clashes with UFC star Tyron Woodley.

Most recently, Serrano finally got her opportunity against undisputed champion Katie Taylor but came up short, although reports suggesting the star earned a career-high purse of around $1 million. Serrano has been on a spending spree and has thanked Paul on social media, tweeting: "I am a happy woman today! God blessed me with the greatest managers Nakisa [Bidarian], Jake Paul and Jordan.

"With them in my team my dreams all came true. I bought my dream Truck, two Rolex’s and now my new house. And yes I still have a huge bank account. Now I just save." Serrano attached pictures of herself sat on the edge of what appears to be a swimming pool in her new house, as well as a snap of her holding the keys to her new plush property.

Paul claimed that Serrano even earned six-figures for her maiden title defences under his guidance, after the YouTube star opted to top up the purse of fighters on his undercard. Serrano had huge success in her boxing career prior to fighting under Paul's promotion having won world titles in seven weight classes.

A fight with Taylor had never been able to materialise until YouTube star Paul arrived on the scene and thrashed out a deal with her rival's promoter Eddie Hearn. Both Taylor and Serrano put on an epic display when making history and headlining Madison Square Garden, and generated huge interest with a viewership of around one million people.

The opportunity to stage a lucrative rematch was on the mind of both fighters and the promoters after the fight, with Serrano even shadow boxing during scenes in the dressing room after the fight. However it appears Serrano has since moved on with talks of a second meeting having now faded.

Serrano will instead return to featherweight next where she will face Brenda Carabajal on the undercard of Jake Paul's clash with Hasim Rahman Jr. The featherweight champion is shocked to be headlining one of America's most iconic venues twice in a matter of months. “I’m still in shock that I’ll be headlining the world’s most famous arena twice in less than six months,” Serrano admitted.

“Brenda is a very tough opponent and has never been knocked out, so I know I will need to be at my best to change that. But I promise you, I am not leaving the outcome for the judges to decide. I am looking forward to fighting in front of my hometown crowd again on the biggest stage in the world and giving them the show they deserve.”
