Report: Eddie Hearn Sues Jake Paul For Over $100 Million After Fixing Allegations


In April, multi-titled boxer Amanda Serrano suffered her first split decision defeat at the hands of Katie Taylor. That gave announcer Jake Paul the wrong impression, especially on judging.

“I still think Amanda Serrano won the fight. [over Katie Taylor]Paul He said at the time.. You see how this judge, Glenn Feldman, was the biggest gap between Taylor and Serrano. Everyone was tied… either tied or Amanda won.

But this judge, Glenn Feldman, who scored a big gap for Taylor, gave Taylor the rounds that Amanda won.

“Then this referee, Glenn Feldman, was seen by Saudi and Anthony Joshua won and scored a goal. [over Oleksandr Usyk]. Everyone who watched the fight [knows] It is not a split decision. Usyk had a runaway victory, clearly winning the fight. Will Judge Glenn Feldman give it to Anthony Joshua? It’s like a repeat offender here.

“This kind of shit, I’m going to call him in the box because he’s bullshit. Apparently this guy is being paid by Matchroom Boxing.

For his part, Macharum Sports founder Eddie Hearn originally planned “Chin him up or sue him.” they responded to Paul. But now it seems he is going for the second option.

TMZ Hearn has filed a $100M defamation suit against the “problem boy” over such allegations, which first broke the news. Hearn’s attorney, Frank Salzano, released this statement:

Legally and morally, there is a clear line that separates opinion from defamation. Jake Paul knows that and intentionally crossed that line when he falsely accused Matchroom Boxing and Eddie Hearn of fixing fights.

However, he was still given an opportunity to withdraw his defamation and refused. Now Matchroom and Mr. Hearn are seeking more than $100 million in damages, which will await the legal outcome of the action, given the value and goodwill associated with Matchroom’s business and the damaging nature of Mr. Paul’s comments.

Hearn discussed the issue last week, saying: Paul and the “unacceptable” accusations “return.”

“We take our values ​​very, very seriously as a business and as a family. We love the sport of boxing. For him to make stupid comments without even thinking about what he said is extremely damaging to me and to us as a business and very disrespectful to us as a business and family,” Hearn said.

“(Paul) doesn’t even understand – ‘Why are Matchroom still picking that referee?’ Matchroom don’t pick the referee, you idiot, the commission does. I don’t think he knows the rules or the structure or even how it works. Sometimes all this Jake Paul stuff is laughable and funny and good for business. It’s not, and it will be resolved.

Paul faces another tough fight on Oct. 29 in Arizona when he faces former longtime UFC champion Anderson Silva.
