Eddie Hearn says ‘smart man’ Jake Paul was good to work with promoters as promoters finally finish Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano fight

Eddie Hearn joked fans won’t hear too much from him until the Katie Taylor vs. Amanda Serrano fight.

Two of the most decorated women of all time will meet in Madison Square Garden on April 30 where Taylor will put her undisputed lightweight crown on the line.

Katie Taylor vs. Amanda Serrano was supposed to happen

Hearn of Matchroom Boxing worked with Jake Paul and his Most Valuable Promotions (MVPs) to make sure everything was done.

Paul is the YouTuber-turned-boxer who amassed a 5-0 record with four knockouts to his name, but the 25-year-old is also a vocal crusader for better fighter pay and has started his own promotion business as a result.

His first athlete signed was the 42-1 Serrano and a few months later he gave him the biggest fight possible.

Hearn told talkSPORT there’s more to Paul than meets the eye.

“Its good [working with Jake Paul and MVP]. He will want to be the hero, really. He wants to be the guy who makes this fight.

“For once, I probably won’t say too much, I’ll let him get up there and do his thing, which is great.”

“He’s going to bring a lot of noise to the show, he’s going to bring a lot of eyeballs, he’s a smart man. I can only judge him by how I found him.

“I made his professional debut [in 2020], it’s probably all my fault [laughs].

“In this case, he did. He and I put together the greatest women’s fight of all time. I can’t hit him.

Hearn also said the fight is not just one of the biggest in women’s boxing, but one of the biggest in the sport in general.

“They deserve everything they get. Two trailblazers,” he added. “An undisputed champion, a seven-division champion – it’s going to be a huge event.”

Paul, meanwhile, said he was honored to be part of such a historic event.

“We expect a battle for the ages and have the utmost respect and admiration for Katie Taylor,” he said in a joint statement with MVP co-founder Nakisa Bidarian.

“But make no mistake, we stand by Amanda Serrano and know that she will prove to the world that she is the pound-for-pound greatest boxer to ever step into the ring. That’s more than a fight is forever.
