Jake Paul and Eddie Hearn’s reactions to the final round of Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano were both excellent.
Paul and Hearn, in tandem with arguably the two greatest female fighters on the planet, staged what will likely go down as the biggest female boxing fight in the history of the sport.
They both deserve a huge amount of credit for their work in making it happen – and will both presumably score a pretty payday out of it, as will their respective fighters.
Promoters oftentimes get accused of not caring about their fighters and only being interested in the financial side of things. These two do NOT fall into that category.

The cameras were trained on both Hearn and Paul in the final round of the contest on Saturday night, and both were evidently stressed, animated and nervous for Taylor and Serrano.
This is a great watch!
