After Jake Paul's commanding first-round knockout victory over Ryan Bourland in Puerto Rico on Saturday night, Ryan Garcia has thrown down the gauntlet, challenging Paul to a fight in a fiery social media exchange.

In a furious post-fight reaction on social media, Garcia expressed his determination to put an end to what he termed "Jake Paul boxing thing." He directly called out Paul, declaring, "I'm dead f****** serious. F*** you! Hit my team up." Garcia's emotions were palpable as he expressed regret for introducing Paul to boxing, emphasizing his inability to allow what he perceives as disrespect to the sport.

Garcia (24-1, 20 KOs), a former WBC interim lightweight champion, is scheduled to face Devin Haney in a highly anticipated bout for the WBC super lightweight title on April 20. Despite being significantly smaller than Paul, with his upcoming fight at 140 pounds compared to Paul's recent 200-pound match, Garcia would undoubtedly provide Paul with his most seasoned boxing challenge to date.

In contrast, Paul (9-1, 6 KOs) showcased his dominance in the ring with his victory over Bourland, marking his second consecutive win over opponents with notable boxing backgrounds. After dispatching Bourland with a flurry of punches in the opening round, Paul reiterated his eagerness to face opponents with extensive boxing experience, further fueling speculation about potential future matchups.
