    Hearn is psychopathic in his competitiveness.

    He was telling anyone who would listen almost up until the week of the first fight that it wasn't going to happen, then spent fight week making sure everyone knew how boring it would be.

    He has no shame.

    He knows a large batch of his followers will listen to him though and repeat whatever he says. Saw it on social media all the time.

    I don't doubt you are correct, which is bad for the sport.

    Is what it is unfortunately, I used to argue against it all the time but it's pointless. If they want to worship a silverspooned Essex boy like he is a god then there is no point engaging with people like that.

    Warren also likes to indulge in sly digs at his rivals activities.

    It's panto. Enjoy it for what it is.

    Uncle Frank has upgraded me to a complimentary VIP seat at my Neighbour's window with free UHD Glasses, 12 cans of fosters, 2 Andy Ruiz Pizzas and a Queensbury Umbrella just in case it is raining.

    Thank you Frank, the man of the people.

    i thought hearn was different to that. he wants the sport to grown and is not bitter if somepne else does something really good. People say warren is bitter but noone touches hearn.

    Hearn must be smiling to himself at how his words have got exactly the response he wanted.

    Despite what the thread title states, he didn’t say that no one in the UK will watch it live. What he did say was that the £5 increase might make people think twice about buying it, in favour of watching the highlights in the morning.

    He’s planting the seeds, and his words will undoubtedly make some that were considering buying the fight not do so.

    He has a very good idea what BT paid for the rights and how many buys they’ll need to break even. By planting these seeds he’s hoping that BT will make a loss on the PPV, and this combined with Frank’s ever-dwindling roster will result in BT pulling the plug or scaling back on its boxing coverage.

    He’s a smart guy.
