‘I’d actually win that fight’ – Jake Paul called out by Eddie Hearn as 43-year-old promoter fancies his chances

And after watching Paul suffer defeat for the first time, against Tommy Fury, 43-year-old Hearn backs himself to beat the American.
He was asked by DAZN who he would rather manage, fight and party with out of Paul, Amanda Serrano and Katie Taylor.
Hearn responded: “I’d definitely fight Jake Paul because I’d actually win that fight.
“I’d manage Katie Taylor, because we’ve done such a great job. She is amazing, and it’s a Puerto Rican party with Amanda Serrano.”
Paul, 26, promoted Serrano’s historic undisputed fight with Taylor, 36, last April alongside Hearn.
And the women’s boxing stars were set to rematch in May until Serrano, 34, was forced to withdraw.
It gives Paul more time to recover from his loss to Fury, 23, in Saudi Arabia amid rumours of a rematch.
But Hearn advised his promotional partner to look elsewhere in his boxing return.

He said: “For me, the rematch, I know people will watch it, but we’ve seen what they are, which is not very good.
“We can’t keep debating that this guy is actually any good, he’s not. Just do one thing, fight KSI, it’s absolutely massive.
“Because the reality is any time you fight anyone with any ability, you will get beat.”
