One of Paul’s initiatives was to refurbish a small gym for use by residents. He established Boxing Bullies to unleash the project of improving a space that was not in the best condition.

It shows how the place was before it was painted, with boxing equipment and a new ring.

Paul gained notoriety through his YouTube channel which has over 20 million subscribers. In addition, he bought a residence in Dorado, where he spends part of the year.

He also established the company Most Valuable Promotions and leads multiple boxing champion Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano who will headline a mega card at Madison Square Garden (MSG) in on April 30.
