Katie Taylor may have come out of the boxing showdown on Saturday night with a win over Amanda Serrano, but that didn’t stop their promoters — Conor McGregor and Jake Paul — from continuing the beef of their own.
Taylor, with McGregor in her corner, beat Serrano in a split decision at Madison Square Garden.
After the fight, McGregor took to social media to focus on Paul.
McGregor tweeted, “Who the f*ck is this jackass in the pink Jimmy Savile glasses?”
McGregor compared the younger Paul brother to deceased BBC personality Jimmy Savile — a man who was suspected of sexual abuse. Paul has also been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct last year, but the boxer denied the claims at the time, saying it was “100% false” and “a blatant attempt for attention during a highly visible fight week.”
Taylor, the Irish boxer McGregor was there to promote, claimed a split decision over Paul’s boxer Serrano to keep her undisputed lightweight championship, with two judges scoring the match 97-93 and 96-93 for Taylor, while a third had it 96-94 for Serrano.
McGregor was sure to compliment the ladies after all was said and done.
