Jake Paul, despite his own prominence in the boxing world, has chosen to step back this time, allowing Serrano the spotlight in her home country, a decision Serrano warmly acknowledged. “It’s a unique situation, flipping roles with Jake, but I’m immensely grateful for this chance to shine on my island,” Serrano reflected.
