Matchroom Boxing head Eddie Hearn believes the billing of the current 135-pounders is too ambitious.
The Brit is promoter of Devin Haney, who recently was claimed as part of the “Big four” of the category.
“I saw ESPN put something out about the “Four Kings” … which was a little bit adventurous,” Hearn told Boxing Social. “But they could be, but let’s look at that era. Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Tommy Hearns, Roberto Duran, they all boxed each other, and numerous times.”
“That’s what we have to do … . They can have trilogies, it doesn’t matter, but they’re all so young and they’re willing to take the risks and the challenges,” said Hearn. “There is not one fight between those four that is not mouth-watering. I was winding up Teofimo in Texas, saying, you’re not undisputed.”
The four lightweights have a combined record of 86 wins, no losses, and all of them are in their prime.
Following his win over Luke Campbell, Garcia used his stage to call out Davis.
Hearn doesn’t think a fight will be feasible between Garcia and Davis because of their promotional and broadcast affiliations.
“I’d rather focus on what can happen, and that’s Haney against [WBC mandatory challenger] Garcia,” said Hearn. “Let’s start this ball rolling for these wonderful four young fighters.”
