Who is Ryan Bourland? All You Need to Know About Jake Paul’s Opponent  

 Jake Paul will take on Ryan Bourland on Saturday night in Puerto Rico. Let's check out Bourland's background and experience ahead of the bout.

Who is Ryan Bourland? 

Ryan "The Rhino" Bourland is the latest opponent lined up for YouTube star turned boxer Jake Paul. The 35-year-old American is a former cruiserweight with a pro record of 17-2. 

Bourland had a rocky upbringing but found boxing as an outlet at age 11. After a period of trouble in his teens, Bourland recommitted to boxing at 22 and turned his life around. He's now coming out of a short retirement to take on internet sensation Paul. 

Ryan Bourland's Record 

In his professional boxing career from 2013-2022, Bourland racked up a record of 17 wins and just 2 losses, with 6 knockouts. He never fought for a major world title, but was a Golden Gloves champion and National Junior Olympian earlier in his amateur career. 

At 35, Bourland is nearing the end of his fighting days, but will look to score the biggest win of his career against the upstart Paul. 

Ryan Bourland Stats 

  • Age: 35 
  • Height: 6'0" 
  • Weight: Around 200 lbs 
  • Reach: N/A 
  • Record: 17(6KO)-2(1KO)-0 
  • Opponents' Combined Record: 121-117-9 

While lacking Paul's elite athleticism and power, Bourland brings far more professional experience into the bout. He will need every bit of that experience to pull off the upset as a heavy +750 to +1200 underdog. 

Ryan Bourland Odds to Beat Jake Paul 

The odds are stacked against Bourland, but he still has a path to victory. Sportsbooks list Bourland as a +750 to +1200 underdog, giving him around a 12% chance to beat the heavily favored Paul. 

To win, Bourland will likely need to take Paul into the late rounds and hope the young star fades down the stretch. At age 35, Bourland's best days are behind him, but he could still give Paul a tougher test than previous opponents.
