Jake Paul is a person who frequently causes trouble with his words. He has made a number of comments that have landed him in difficulty. And now, Glenn Feldman, the boxing judge, is suing him for defamation.
According to TMZ, Feldman is suing Paul for making “outrageously false and baseless accusations,” and the lawsuit was filed in New York. On September 20, Paul made these remarks during an IFL TV interview. Feldman was accused by Paul of taking money from Eddie Hearn, a boxing promoter. This charge was made in response to Feldman’s controversial choice to declare Anthony Joshua the winner of his rematch against Oleksandr Usyk.
“Glenn Feldman shows up in Saudi and scores Anthony Joshua to win the fight when everyone who watched the fight said it was not a split decision … Clearly, this guy is getting paid money by Matchroom Boxing.”
Hearn is now suing Paul for up to $100 million, and Feldman allegedly wanted to be a part of the action as well. However, what Feldman seeks in terms of damages is still unknown for the time being, though. Stay tuned to Thirsty for the latest updates.
