    Sky / Boxxer have also paid a lot of money for some of the Olympians, like Ben Whittaker and Frazer Clarke got 10 fight deals for £1 million. To be fair, Whittaker looks like a great talent, not sure about Clarke though.

    I think they read the pro matchroom sentiment on here and are so disgusted by it they turn HEEL. These paid matchroom shills are counter productive.

    perhaps @Mitch87 is in fact a Queensberry plant?

    What has this got to do with the thread? Once again stop posting anti any other promoter apart from Matchroom crap. It’s dull and getting very old.

    Eddie Hearn uses other people to make money for himself. The boxers must learn to understand that Eddie Hearn considers them a piece of meat. When Eddie Hearn no longer can or wants to use the boxer, he chews his mouth and spits the boxer out.

    I know plenty of stories about Eddie Hearn that are not appropriate for this forum.

    Hearn has always looked down his nose at boxers, clear as day. But I think he's become even more condescending this last few years, it must be increasingly difficult for his boxers to turn the other cheek so they keep getting paid.

    I'll bet it's a relief for British fighters when they get offered good money elsewhere. Of course if they get offered too much it won't take long for Hearn to start making spiteful comments like with Khan vs Brook.

    Par for this forum.

    Majority here hate Hearn, hate Matchroom, hate DAZN (don’t subscribe either), but will happily post slagging all of the above off ad infinitum.

    It's not just the majority on here, it's the majority of people paying attention.

    I just noticed this new video only just posted in the Buatsi thread..

    Literally Hearn's first point begins with: "Some people, who aren't the brightest..."

    It's the same thing every single time, with every boxer and every situation - Hearn knows best and everyone else is thick as **** in comparison.

    Don't be surprised that most people who have spent years seeing this - and know he's only in his position because of daddy - have some negative words to say when hearing these same type of disrespectful comments on near enough a daily basis.

    Same as any other promoter then.

    I don’t think you will find Warren or Arum still paying their fighters after they retire.

    I don't think he's really worse than the rest of them but what happened was he blew up and hasn't understood that that wasn't because he was a genius but because he was hard-working and lucky.

    @Astro you have made similar claims before about all promoters.

    What is unique about Hearn in your view?

    I hate posts like that. Oooo I know so many stories about someone but I can’t say them on here.

    Why not? Are you going to get arrested? Are people wearing matchroom outfits going to turn up at your house or work and drag you outside and stone you to death?
