One of boxing’s top dogs right now Eddie Hearn has warned his colleagues all around the world that there’ll be some time before fans will be able to go to live boxing events.
The coronavirus outbreak locked down every major sporting event for the past two months and boxing couldn’t escape from it.
The British promoter is aware of the fact that there is a lot of money to be lost, but getting back on track is by far the most important things for all the parties involved – promoters, managers, fighters and etc.
”A lot of people are saying, ‘You can’t do big fights behind closed doors,’ right? But we have to. Look at how UFC bounced back over the weekend, and I spoke to Dana the last couple of days, and I just said I wasn’t sure about his decision if it was even morally right. But he’s a front-runner, a go-getter, and he went out and delivered — but he delivered with a strong product.”
There is no timetable for the resume of boxing, as all the major promoters in the game are hoping to stage an event somewhere in July or August.
