Eddie Hearn eagerly awaits someone to ‘lie’ Jake Paul but admits YouTuber is ‘not terrible’ and Tommy Fury is also ‘very limited’ ahead of potential August fight


Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn admits he’s looking forward to the day someone ‘lies’ Jake Paul.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer is set to fight Tyson Fury’s half-brother Tommy on August 13 after their bout was canceled last year.

Paul is 5-0 in his professional career but has yet to face a big-name boxer, with his wins over another YouTuber, a basketball player and two MMA fighters.

Fury’s 8-0 record also lacks substance and Hearn, who doesn’t promote either, insists both are “very limited”.

Nonetheless, after co-promoting Amanda Serrano against Katie Taylor with Paul, Hearn insists the internet star is having a positive impact on boxing.

Still, he says “it will be a nice day” when someone knocks the 25-year-old American out.

“I don’t represent them, but I hear this fight [Paul vs Fury] is happening on August 13, so you can see it,” Hearn told Drive on talkSPORT.

“Both are very limited, but as long as it’s a competitive fight it doesn’t really matter.

“Jake Paul is strange, but I like what he does for boxing.

“I did Amanda Serrano vs. Katie Taylor with him and it was a lot of fun, it was a big hit.

“He puts in the work and he’s not terrible.

“But it will be a nice day when someone talks to him.”
