Jake Paul Has Proposed A New Set Of Boxing Rules That'll Change The Sport Forever

Jake Paul has produced a plan to 'fix' boxing in the wake of Josh Taylor's controversial win over Jack Catterall.

Taylor remains unbeaten and retained his WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO light-welterweight titles on Saturday night but many disagreed with the decision.

Judges Victor Loughlin and Ian John-Lewis scored the fight to Taylor while Howard Foster was the only man to score it to Catterall.

He explained on Twitter: "I think there should be 6 boxing judges for title fights 3 pairs of 2.

"Each pair has to agree on the same score at the end of the round & if they don’t they briefly debate their reasoning.

"Almost like a jury system. These poor decisions change the shape of the sport forever."

The 25-year-old then followed up with: "Or something like this idea. This is just a quick little brainstorm."

Paul is 5-0 in boxing and won his last fight after knocking out Tyron Woodley.

'The Problem Child' has turned his hand to promoting and isn't set to fight again until the summer.

He's also battling UFC president Dana White over how fighters earn in the promotion.

It's been confirmed the British Boxing Board of Control will look into the result of Taylor vs Catterall.

Fans inside the OVO Hydro in Glasgow gasped after Taylor was announced as winner and Catterall stormed out of the ring in a fury.

Catterall would take to social media on Sunday and express his disgust at the result.

The 28-year-old vented: “You know what hurts the most, it wasn’t for me, I done all of this for my family my team, my town and country.

"My baby girl and misses, our future. Today I should of been waking up with all of the belts. 15 months out the ring, they all wrote me off.

“F**k me in every way possible for over two years, finally got the fight.

"Sacrificed everything to fight one of the top p4p ranked fighters, gave him a lesson. For what. Boxing shame on you."

Taylor, meanwhile, believes he deserved to win the fight and insists there will be no rematch.
