Jake Paul Announces Payments for Undercard Fighters for Canceled MSG Event

Jake Paul originally was supposed to headline a boxing event at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, Aug. 6. However, the event was canceled a week prior due to a weight issue with his opponent Hasim Rahman Jr.

Because the main event was canceled, the entire card of fights could no longer go on.

On Saturday, Paul and promotion company Most Valuable Promotions announced that Paul would be paying the undercard fighters 50% of their contracted purse amount.

“The undercard boxers who were set to fight today as part of the Jake Paul & Amanda Serrano MVP event spent countless hours training both physically and mentally to prepare to fight on one of the biggest stages of their careers,” MVP’s statement read. “These undercard fighters abided by the terms of their contracts and Jake and MVP are extremely disappointed that the event cancellation adversely impacted them.”
