Briton Eddie Hearn, the promoter of Alexander Usik, shocked the public when he made public his unusual plan to return to the elite of Boxing in the UK.
Head of Matchroom Boxing is going to have big fights in the backyard of his home. Hearn intends to organize a show of Boxing 4 Saturdays in a row on an area of 15 acres at his residence in Brentwood, Essex.
His plan for a £ 1 million is to start with a female championship fight between Terry Harper and Natasha Jonas in mid-July and then finish the big fight for the title of champion WBC in superheavy weight between Diliana white and Alexander Povetkin in the first or second Saturday of August.
True, Boxing will be able to see only 90 people in each duel due to restrictions related to the pandemic coronavirus. The proposal, which is now seriously discussed, includes 4pm Boxing 5 fights for the 28-day period.
Eddie Hearn said: “financially it will be painful for us. But we worked hard for the last 10 years, and I’m not going to let Boxing go. At that time, as other guys work on empty arenas, we are all going to look very different.
Just imagine it. Summer, the house was all lit, and starts the fireworks. Then the hill are Gillian white and Alexander Povetkin, who loudly tearing my lawn. The world Boxing championship in my garden? Yes, you’ll see it!”
