JAKE PAUL was left “baffled” by Amanda Serrano’s tiny paydays – now he aims to earn the seven-weight world champion $10million.

Serrano is one of the most decelerated boxers in the world, with titles all the way from super-flyweight to light-welter.

But the Puerto Rican was also one of the most criminally underrated and underappreciated talents in the sport.

That was until she met YouTube star-turned boxer Paul, who later signed Serrano to his Most Valuable Promotions banner.

Since promoting and managing her, the American has made Serrano a millionaire and secured her a super-fight with Katie Taylor.

And Paul wants to times her earnings tenfold after brokering the biggest bout in women’s boxing history.

He told SunSport: “That’s why I was so baffled when I first met her about how much money she was making. 

“And how she was being mistreated and how she didn’t have that much of a big following online. 

“It didn’t make sense to me, I was like, ‘You’re one of the greatest fighters of all time, you should be getting paid millions of dollars’. 

“She was telling me at the time that she was fighting for $10,000, $15,000. So, it’s cool to finally see her get a seven-figure payday.

“And when she wins, my goal is to get her a $10million dollar payday, eight figures, the first time ever. There’s a lot to accomplish here.” 

Serrano, 33, started boxing at 18 after being inspired by her sister Cindy, 36, who was a former featherweight champion.

But following her professional debut in 2009, it has been a long and hard road to gain recognition for her greatness.

That was until linking up with Paul and proving opposites really do attract.

Serrano does not even own a phone but is guided by one of the biggest phenomenons of the social media era.

Paul said: “We’re just very similar people regardless of what we do for our profession.

“Obviously we share the boxing ring in common but obviously she doesn’t have a phone and really understand social media like that. 

“But, at the end of the day I’m a human, she’s a human and we relate on that level.

“We’re both driven, we both work hard, we both have a similar sense of humour. 

“And she needed that person that would give her the exposure to this new generation and the digital era. 

“We really hit it off since day one and the friendship is only growing.

“It’s awesome to spend more time with her this week and to be there with her throughout this big moment.”

Paul has helped boost Serrano’s profile with non-stop promotion and praise as well as spots on his undercard.

In exchange, the Guinness World Record holder for most titles in women’s boxing passes on her ring knowledge.

And Paul had no problems admitting he has learned a lot from just watching Serrano in training camp.

He said: “The relentless work ethic and the commitment to the game year round, always staying ready and being ready. 

“Even practising three times a day, which is crazy, doing three-a-days is inspiring.

“Sometimes it’s a little bit tougher for me being a little bit heavier to workout that many times a day. 

“But no, she has definitely shown me how to work like a professional boxer.”

Serrano has had two wins on Paul’s pay-per-view undercards which set up a historic undisputed clash with lightweight queen Taylor.

Promoter Paul said: “Boxing needs more of this. Boxing needs these big fights, boxing needs the pound-for-pound best to fight.

“Hopefully these ladies can set a precedent and that’s why this fight is bigger than just male or female, it goes beyond that. 

“That’s the beauty of it and that’s why I’m so happy to be a part of it. This will be talked about forever, for many different reasons.” 

Serrano is jumping up from her comforted featherweight division to challenge Olympic gold winner Taylor, 36, in New York.

And Paul, who is staging the fight alongside Eddie Hearn, backed Serrano to tirelessly work her way to win against unbeaten 20–0 Taylor.
