PUERTO RICO (Diya TV) — The ongoing feud between Indian boxer Neeraj Goyat and internet sensation turned boxer Jake Paul has reached a fever pitch as the adversaries clashed face-to-face in Puerto Rico. Goyat’s determined effort to challenge Paul in person underscores the intensifying rivalry in the world of influencer boxing.

Neeraj Goyat, a highly accomplished Indian professional boxer began training in 2006 at the Army Sports Institute, where he transitioned from gymnastics to boxing. Throughout his career, Goyat has garnered numerous accolades, including winning the title of “India’s most promising boxer” in 2008 and becoming the first Indian professional boxer to win three twelve-round fights.

Jake Paul’s meteoric rise in popularity parallels the growing number of his adversaries. As the face of influencer boxing, Paul has attracted attention from celebrities like KSI, Michael Philippou, Jay Swingler, Logan Paul, Adam Saleh, and Fousey. With his fame as a boxer soaring, challenges to face him have become increasingly frequent, including ones from MMA fighter Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson and NFL player Tyreek Hill. Neeraj Goyat, in particular, has persistently pushed for a clash with Paul, escalating the confrontation after Paul initially ignored his social media challenges.

Goyat’s determination culminated in a face-to-face confrontation outside Paul’s gym in Puerto Rico. Despite attempts by boxer Amanda Serrano to intervene, tensions boiled over, leading to a brief physical altercation. Although Paul had dismissed Goyat’s intentions to fight him, Goyat’s actions demonstrated otherwise as he threw punches in frustration.
