A $2 million offer from Jake Paul to Katie Taylor to fight Amanda Serrano in featherweight was rejected by Eddie Hearn.
The 36-year-old debuted professionally in 2016 and has never weighed less than 132lbs.
Taylor’s promoter was a guest in a recent episode of The DAZN Boxing Show and said the idea of the Irish superstar dropping two weight classes was a no-brainer.
“That’s just another example of him [Paul] know nothing about the boxing business.”
Serrano was defeated in a modern classic at Madison Square Garden four months ago that has seen Taylor retain her undisputed light crown.
Discussion of a rematch has been swirling since Taylor wanted a comeback in front of her family’s support outdoors in Croke Park, Dublin.
Hearn, who co-promoted the original fight with Jake Paul and MVP Promotion, did not deny his words when he described Paul’s recent proposal.
“She is a light career, she is the undisputed world champion, she has the belt to protect. Suggesting that she can fight at 126 is just the most absurd stupid thing anyone could say. “
“The fact that she won’t be any lower than 135.”
Serrano is expected to return to Madison Square Garden this weekend and defend her WBC and WBO featherweight titles against Brenda Karen Carabajal in Jake Paul’s underdog bout against Hasim Rahman Jr. The show is now cancelled leaving Puerto Rico in search of a war.
Hearn says a rematch with Taylor is possible, but reiterated that the 2012 Olympic gold medalist won’t leave 135lbs to help Serrano.
“I’m sure Amanda Serrano would have liked it at 130 but Katie Taylor would never have been at 130.”
“If Amanda Serrano thinks she’s beaten, she’s before she can get another crack to make more money than the last in a bigger event, in an iconic event. in front of 80,000 people.”
“This should be a natural fight to remake. Everyone should just go girls can’t make a lot of money unless they fight each other. It was an excellent fight. You think you won, we think we won. Let’s run it again”.
