Jake Paul being sued by Eddie Hearn over rigged-fights claim
Share this @internewscast.com

Promoter Eddie Hearn is suing Jake Paul, alleging “outrageously false and baseless allegations,” after Paul claimed Hearn paid off a judge in two recent fights, per the suit, obtained by TMZ Sports.

Paul said in an interview with IFL TV that Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing paid off the judge in an August fight between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua and did so again in an April bout between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano. 

Both fights ended in split decisions, with Usyk beating Joshua and Taylor beating Serrano.

“I still think Amanda Serrano won the fight [versus Taylor],” Paul said. “Then you see how this judge Glenn Feldman, who had the biggest gap between Taylor and Serrano. Everyone pretty much had it a draw… a draw or that Amanda won. But there’s this judge, Glenn Feldman, who scored it such a big gap for Taylor, gave rounds that Amanda clearly won, to Taylor.

“Glenn Feldman shows up in Saudi and scores Anthony Joshua to win the fight when everyone who watched the fight said it was not a split decision. Usyk had a runaway victory, clearly won the fight. This judge, Glenn Feldman, gives it to Anthony Joshua? It’s like a repeated crime here. This type of s–t, I’m going to call it out here in boxing because it’s bulls–t. Clearly, this guy is getting paid money by Matchroom Boxing.”

Hearn is alleging defamation and asking for more that $75,000 in damages, per TMZ.
Paul added in the interview that he was making “a bold statement and an accusation that I don’t take [lightly] but it’s just blatantly obvious. And they’re not even trying to hide it.”
Hearn has called Paul’s allegations “outlandishly false.”

“I want an official apology from him and if he won’t then we’ll see what we have to do,” Hearn, told Boxing Social. “But I’m not having our name in this business defamed and the integrity of what we do. It’s very important to us and our love for the sport by some geezer that has no idea what he’s talking about.”
