Jake Paul enters the ring for the first time this year on Saturday, March 2, 2024, to take on experienced fighter Ryan Bourland in San Juan, Puerto Rico. YouTube star Paul has made no secret of his desire to win a boxing world title and a victory over the 17-2 Bourland would move him one step closer to securing a shot at a belt.

Jake Paul v Ryan Bourland predictions

The Problem Child may have taken an unorthodox route into boxing but this will be his 4th fight in just over a year, so his commitment cannot be questioned. The 27-year-old was last seen recording a savage first-round knockout of cruiserweight Andre August in December.

Bourland will provide Paul with a different test and he is the most experienced out-and-out boxer he has faced, but the 35-year-old has also been largely inactive. The American’s last fight came in September 2022, which was his first bout in almost 4 years, so his lack of time in the ring is a concern.

Paul is the overwhelming favorite and very short odds to record another early finish after his demolition of August. That perhaps does Bourland a disservice, though, as he has been stopped just once in a 19-fight career and can make it to at least the midway point of the 8-round contest.

Jake Paul vs Ryan Bourland best bet: Jake Paul to win in Round 5 or Round 6 (+950)

Odds available at FanDuel Sportsbook at time of publishing.

With Paul such a heavy favorite, backing the Problem Child in the rounds market could be the best approach; with a Paul win in round 5 or round 6 the pick.

Bourland has the ability to avoid an early finish, although most of his bouts have been contested over no longer than 6 rounds, so don’t expect things to last much longer than that.
