After several unfounded and extremely direct allegations from Jake Paul about paying judges, Eddie Hearn decided to go the legal route.
Hearn, a promoter of Paul’s first professional game, has said that, while he was pleased to receive some comments with a pinch of salt, the allegations in question were too serious to go unanswered. legitimate return. Comments from Americans involved a scorecard from their joint promotional event, which saw Katie Taylor beat Amanda Serrano in New York.
The lawsuit claims over $100 million for reputational damage, which doesn’t seem to bother the American YouTuber/boxer/promoter. He talked to MMA Junkie.
“I didn’t even focus on it. I have this fight coming up, October 29, and my attorneys are working on it. So haven’t even really put any thought into it yet. Do not care. You know, I always get sued for stupid things. I’m 5 and 0 in the lawsuit, and 5 and 0 in the ring. I have all the time in the world, all the money in the world, and I have only October 29 focused.”
It seems that both Paul-promoted Serrano and Hearn-promoted Taylor are keen to rematch – but one wonders how likely the two companies will be drawn into a legitimate relationship.
Meanwhile, Jake Paul has his own fight to worry about. He faces Brazilian Mixed Martial Arts legend, Anderson Silva, in Arizona on October 29. This will be his sixth professional fight, and a step up as his opponent has a boxing record. He is professional and won. If he passes this test, it is rumored that he will face off against the Heavyweight Champion’s brother, Tommy Fury, early next year.
