Default Matchroom moves

They got Brook, Barker and want Froch.

Their international prize fighter will be shown in american on fox sports.

They also got adidas to sponsor Darren Barker which is a good move.

Its great to have the Hearns back in boxing in a big way. It seem Hearn jnr loves his boxing which can only be good for the longterm with boxing in the UK. Seems a good move for Barry to give his son the running of the boxing to see how he gets on and so far so good I am liking there recent signings and I wish them well in the coming years. Seems Matchroom is the place to be if your a boxer these days.

Matchroom are looking like they are going to be major players in the next couple of years, if they get Froch I think itll be after the super six.

Was amazed how Matchroom got TV dates for Sky before without having fighters signed up but Eddie Hearn really does seem to be committed to promoting fights and fighters.

I think they seem pretty shrewd about what they want to do and also working with other promoters and not being too precious about it

They were #1 outside America from '87 to '95.

Hearn promoted Eubank, Hamed, Bruno, Lennox, Benn, Bugner, Collins, McGuigan, Mike McCallum, Azumah Nelson, Graciano Rocchigiani, Julian Jackson, Mickey Ward, Vuyani Bungu, Watson, Graham, Pyatt, Christie, Hide, Robinson, Baby Jake Matlala, Pat Clinton, Eamonn Loughran etc etc.

Back then Hearn had TV deals all over the world - Fox in USA, Prime in USA, TSN in Canada, SABC in Africa, Star in Asia, Eurosport in Europe, and ITV in UK.

Obviously Eubank was his masterpiece and his USP (unique selling proposition-as they say in the business world).

Good to see him back in business (in boxing) and steering Eddie.
