Hearn Wants Wilder & Charlos In Stable
After announcing an entry into the United States with a streaming deal. Eddie Hearn is starting to make a shopping list for fighters that may be on the market.
Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing USA announced a new streaming platform, and Hearn looks to add some major names in boxing who lack have full representation.
“Look at Deontay Wilder – it’s embarrassing that he’s sitting on Instagram filming himself trying to build his profile off Anthony Joshua’s name,” Hearn said. “They need help, these guys, the Charlo brothers, Wilder, all these sorts of people. And when we come here in full, starting in September, these guys are all on the radar for Matchroom Boxing USA.
“For fighters, it’s open season. Any fighter out there, any world-class fighter that doesn’t have a promotional contract, that feels like they’re not getting enough activity and wants to be promoted properly and wants to be involved in the big fights, we’re here, and there’s going to be a lot of interesting conversations going on over the next few weeks.
“We need to bring the existing world championships to the platform as well and the guys on the verge of shots. It’s going to be a massive recruitment process over the next two or three months. Championship fighters need to box three times a year, and we can do that for these guys, but more importantly we can build from the ground the young fighters coming through. Young heavyweights need to box eight times a year, not three or four.”
