Jake Paul stuns Eddie Hearn by asking ‘would you let me smash your cakes’

Eddie Hearn had no answer to Jake Paul after the YouTuber-turned-boxer asked him: "Would you let me smash your cakes?"

The bizarre exchange occurred at a promotional event for the undisputed lightweight championship bout between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano in New York on Saturday night. Hearn, who is Taylor's promotor and Paul, who manages Serrano, sat down together for a photoshoot with a piece of cake each.

The two cake slices each depicted a boxing ring with a glove inside, and both men were handed a miniature gavel to break the cake with. But as they sat down in front of the cameras, Paul made a strange comment.

"Would you let me smash your cakes," the controversial American asked Hearn, who seemed somewhat taken aback by the question. The Matchroom chief looked stunned as he stared at the cake before turning his attention to Paul and raising a cheeky smile.

Paul posted a clip of the exchange on Instagram followed by a snap of Hearn with his eyes replaced by love heart emojis. The 25-year-old also taunted Tyson Fury's younger brother Tommy after his victory at Wembley on Saturday.

"Yes and no," Paul replied when the Daily Mirror asked him whether Fury's performance against Daniel Bocianski had cost him a shot at a rescheduled fight with the YouTuber.

"It obviously was a mediocre performance, but what do you expect from a mediocre guy? He's better at talking than he is at fighting." Yet Paul is refusing to rule out a fight with Fury – four months after their original contest was postponed.

"There could be interest there," Paul said "I want to see the Anderson Silva fight and how he does, how he looks. There are other talks with Mike Tyson and other names under the table so really we're just looking for the best opportunity.

"For me, Tommy is an easy fight, so maybe I'll just run it up, get a quick knockout and then move on from there, But maybe not."
