    Why does Eddie get so much hate? He's got a great sense of humour and a bloody class promoter. What he said about AJ in the post fight press conference was one of the most genuine, classiest things I've seen. Decent bloke

      people hate on him for being good at his job, he talks and he sells fights, it rubs people the wrong way but they dont realise that by them hating him he's getting the hype and publicity he wants. best boxing promoter ever by far

    You have to love Eddie Hearn, he’s full of fluff and great entertainment but at the end of the day he redeemed himself by not taking himself too seriously. I actually enjoy watching him promote boxing and I think he is good for the sport

    the problem with American humor is that most of us associate sarcasm too strongly with offense (as with anything else that might be funny) to even consider laughing at the joke even if we _do_ get it.

    Eddy Hearn is so interesting to listen to. And I like that he totally believes in himself. Boxing needs promotors like him. My dream would be for him and Frank Warren to work together... What a power house team that would be, two of the sharpest promotors in boxing and there British.🧐🧐🧐

    ali vs tyson was the first time I ever agreed with Eddie Hearn, not because of the match up, but because of what he said "everyone talks about the footwork, the movement and speed, but really it was all about his chin" Ali has one of the greatest chins in the history of the sport. To see 2 fighters, just as fast, one with more skill, one with more power, the greatest iron jaw vs the greatest power puncher would have been amazing

    Gotta love Eddie Hearn... The only boxing promoter bar none, who doesn't think of himself too big to mingle with the little people and get roasted.. I seen a video of him where someone pulled his pants all the way down for laughs and giggles andIg Ed just laughed it off like a champ...
    Imagine Bob Arum or De la Hoya or even Al Haymon busting out laughing with us regular. Folks... Ain't happening.

    The attitude difference with regards to fighter pay in compression to Dana White is crazy! Big up to Eddie for caring about the sacrifice and risks fighters make for the sake of our entertainment. Fighters should be well compensated for the risks they take, I love the UFC but what they pay their fighters for what they do is not good.

    Eddie made some big money last few years, and brought us some great fights, but is having a horrible run at the moment. First AJ lost to Ruiz, Eddie loses the Fury contract in court, then AJ loses to Usyk, then Canelo loses to Bivol, and now AJ just lost to Usyk once more.
