Papi has won all three of his fights during his short boxing career - winning two of them by KO which includes a ferocious first round beatdown on Josh Brueckner in January this year.

And his charismatic style has caught the attention of former world champion Manny Pacquiao who commented on the win with: "Pwede Na" which translates to 'go for it'.

However, the TikTok sensation is set to face his toughest challenge yet in Taylor who had once put together a five-fight win streak before losing to Tommy Fury in August 2021.

But "Pretty Boy" hasn't been in a boxing encounter since his loss to Idris Virgo at Misfits series 004.

With Papi going into this encounter undefeated and Taylor needing to bounce back, it makes for an intriguing match-up.
