“It’s a bold statement and an accusation I don’t take lightly,” said Jake Paul, as he accused Eddie Hearn’s Chamber of Commerce of paying a boxing referee.
Hearn and Paul teamed up to defend Katie Taylor’s undisputed title against Amanda Serrano, who is part of America’s steady MVP.
Glenn Feldman has been scoring in boxing matches since 1992. Most recently, however, he was one of the three judges in the whole fight. Katie Taylor – Amanda Serrano and Oleksandr Usyk – Anthony Joshua rematch. Those are the two battles that Paul alleges corruption.
In an interview with IFL TVYouTuber turned boxer has made his statement – it all stemmed from his boxer’s loss to Katie Taylor in a historic and co-promotion event at Madison Square Garden.
“I still think Amanda Serrano won the fight, and I think a lot of people do too. You can see this judge, Glenn Feldman, who has the biggest gap between Serrano and Taylor. Pretty much everyone thought it was a draw or Amanda won. Even Katie’s coach came to see me before they declared in the ring like ‘it’s a draw.’ But judge Glenn Feldman said it was too big of a gap for Taylor. There were rounds where Amanda clearly beat Taylor. “
“Then this judge Glenn Feldman showed up in Saudi Arabia and scored Anthony Joshua winning the fight as everyone watched the fight – it wasn’t a split decision, Usyk had a running win hide, clearly won the fight and this judge Glenn Feldman for that. Anthony Joshua. It’s like a recurring crime here. I’ll call it out in boxing because it’s the bulls. “
“Obviously this guy [Feldman] is getting money thanks to Matchroom Boxing – and that is a bold statement and accusation that I do not take lightly.”
“It’s just blatantly obvious and they don’t even try to hide it… You’d think they would have another judge take it to Saudi Arabia, especially since he’s from the US – like at Why is he suddenly appearing in Saudi Arabia? “
“You would think they would have another judge to try and hide the corruption they are bringing to the sport but it’s clearly too obvious.”
Feldman scored Taylor – Serrano 97-93 in favor of the Irish boxer. In Saudi Arabia more recently, he beat Joshua 115-113 on the final bell.

Disagreement and irritation around scorecards are all too common in boxing, yet rarely do they lead to such a clear and purposeful accusation.
Despite Paul’s robustness, the shocking claims are based solely on opinion without any evidence provided to substantiate.
