Boxing Judge Joins Eddie Hearn’s $100M Defamation Lawsuit Against Jake Paul

Someone else has joined in suing YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul.

Paul is now being sued by boxing judge Glenn Feldman, who joins Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn in a defamation lawsuit, according to ESPN.

“[Paul’s] statements have harmed Feldman’s reputation in the public, impute the commission of a crime, and/or call into question Feldman’s fitness to perform his work in his trade and profession,” Hearn’s attorney Frank Salzano wrote in a complaint, per ESPN.

The suit stems from comments Paul made last month who he claimed that Feldman is being influenced to score for Hearn’s fighters, which includes undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor and former unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

“I still think Amanda Serrano won the fight [over Katie Taylor],” Paul previously told IFL TV.

“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.

“Then this judge, Glenn Feldman, shows up in Saudi and scores Anthony Joshua to win [over Oleksandr Usyk]. Everyone who watched the fight [knows] it’s 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—, I’m going to call it out here in boxing because it’s bulls—. Clearly, this guy is getting paid money by Matchroom Boxing.”

Taylor defeated Serrano by split decision, with Feldman giving a wide score of 97-93. In Joshua’s split decision loss to Oleksandr Usyk in August, Feldman gave Joshua 115-113.

Feldman has been a boxing judge since 1992 and has judged high-profile bouts including Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao in May 2015.

There has yet to be a public comment on the legal battle from Paul nor his promotion, Most Valuable Promotions.

Paul is fighting MMA legend Anderson Silva in a boxing match on October 29.
