Eddie Hearn delves into near-term Matchroom future after Sky switch

Starting on July 31, the three-show run – the first nights of Matchroom’s new exclusive deal with DAZN – features Conor Benn taking on Adrian Granados on week one and Kid Galahad fighting Jazza Dickens for the vacant IBF featherweight title on week two.

Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury is no longer under discussion as both champions focus on dangerous challengers, says promoter Eddie Hearn

Bob Arum: “Eddie Hearn Was The Guy Who Screwed Everything Up.”

“Eddie Hearn has diarrhea of the mouth,” Bob Arum tells Fight Hype. “He can’t stop talking and he doesn’t think.” Arum is responding to Eddie Hearn essentially blaming him in large part for the highly anticipated heavyweight title fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua falling through. The two fighters, who are represented by Hearn and Arum respectively, were supposed to meet in Saudi Arabia this August, with the winner of the bout being declared the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. An American arbitrator subsequently ruled, however, that Fury would have to have a third fight with former WBC heavyweight titlist Deontay Wilder by September.
