Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano: Jake Paul and Eddie Hearn make huge $1m bet

  • Tom Ward

Jake Paul has bet Eddie Hearn $1million that Amanda Serrano will beat Katie Taylor.

The YouTuber, 25, publicly raised the stakes after Matchroom boss Hearn refused to get a tattoo in the event of Taylor losing.

Serrano, 33, has an impressive 42-1-1 boxing record and takes on Irish ring legend Taylor, 35, in her next fight on April 30.

And the proud Puerto Rican has the full support of her upstart promoter, who has vowed to put his money where his mouth is.

Paul also pledged to give Serrano his entire winnings if she wins.

Hearn said: “You’re fully confident that your charge will be victorious and become undisputed lightweight world champion?”

Paul said: “More confident than you are.”

Hearn added: “Really? I don’t think so.”

Hearn remarked: “I was hoping to bet for a lot more than that.”

Paul continued: “Well let’s put it on.”
