This week, Jake Paul accused Eddie Hearn and his company Matchroom of sports corruption, particularly in relation to judge Glenn Feldman. The claims have no substantiation and have now led to a legal action.
In an interview, Paul talked about the scorecard he came up with. One is for Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano’s fight, and the other is Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua. Both shows were promoted by Matchroom, and both cards were submitted by Glenn Feldman.
Serrano promoter Paul, said the scorecards were like “a crime over and over” and that Matchmaking Room “didn’t even try to hide it. He ended his speech by saying “obviously, this guy [Feldman] is getting money thanks to Matchroom Boxing” and even followed it up and admitted that it was “a bold statement and an accusation. “
Understandably, this doesn’t sit well with Eddie Hearn. In addition to pointing out that advertising agencies do not choose judges for matches, he also said that comments will be handled appropriately.
A new lawsuit, according to TMZ Sports, the British promoter is suing the Americans, alleging their reputation has been damaged following “false and baseless allegations”. TMZ reports that the lawsuit is seeking damages in excess of $75,000.
Legal action ends what once appeared to be an amicable business relationship. Paul’s advertising agency MVP was involved in the making of the Taylor event – Serrano – which would go down in history as the first boxing event in Madison Square Garden titled female fight.
As for the text, Paul has yet to respond publicly.
