    Undoubtedly the great man that is called Eddie Hearn. He is the savior of boxing, the breathe of fresh air, the beacon of all good.

    God save Eddie Hearn. :bowdown

    If anyone takes this seriously, please die.

    Depends what you mean by 'best';

    most successful financially,
    most successful in honours i.e. titles,
    the guy who does the best for the fans,
    who you like the most.

    I'm a big fan of Spencer Fearon, and Dave Coldwell seems a decent man. The best is probably Hearn though in terms of actual promoting. Can't argue with his success and the fact he is putting on the biggest shows right now.

    Rabbithole is probably getting the most out of the least. Anybody who can pass off Cleverly vs Karpency as a World Title must have some talent, although I'd lean more towards con-artist than promoter.

    Over the last two or three years you've got to say Hearn.

    Allegedly has had a shocking time and Maloney seems to have lost interest.

    Hatton had a bit of momentum which sadly seems to have been lost.

    Will be interesting to see how Coldwell fares in the coming months.

    Hearn, because he can enter a ring quicker then Dale Winton.

    Is he though? Haye v Chisora eclipses anything Hearn has done. Ever. Clev v Karpency was just as 'big' as Brook v Hatton. Hearn didn't promote Martinez v Barker or Rees' away day in France either.

    Hearn is overrated. Everyone loves him because he is new; he was a major factor in Audley/Haye and Khan/McCloskey!

    No, I don't know what 'promoting' means. I am thick as ****. Do you know the meaning of 'promotion'?

    My point is that he is not this promoting angel, sent from above to make the best fights entirely for British boxing fans.

    My choice was Khan Promotions, for anyone who wants to know.
