    This is a thread where we can compile all of Eddie Hearns hypocrisies into one convenient location.

    Starting from the latest IFL:

    - Says he is putting Whyte - Chisora on the same day as Frampton - Warrington and that no one should feel hard done by cause its just business.

    - Cries and complains that Warren / Showtime might announce Fury - Wilder on Anthony Joshuas "fight week"

    This is just absurd. He can justify clashing a PPV which will probably half both the PPVs potential revenue, but god forbid someone ANNOUNCE a fight in the whole week leading up to an AJ fight. So Hearn and Matchroom own the whole week, no one can do any business :lol:

    Hearn is damaging AJ`s career the same way Rock Newman ruined Bowe`s.

    Well, here's why I agree with Hearn on those two points you mention:

    1. The audience of Frampton-Warrington is really only the Northern Irish fans. Eddie can put all he wants on that day, it won't hurt the core PPV sales of Frank's show because it only mainly appeals to Northern Irish people. Oh, and Whyte-Chisora doesn't sell as good as he thinks anyways. So A. It won't steal fans from Frank's show and B. It doesn't sell in the first place.

    2. When can you recall Hearn playing that game against Showtime or Frank? He has been fair for the most part, so why aren't they? He is right to moan about this. Showtime did a similar kind of thing with Canelo-GGG by putting Mayweather-McGregor just before it to hurt it's PPV sales. Al Haymon and Showtime are jealous and they are showing it. He is right to call them out like that.

    One key difference is Joshua-Povetkin is not PPV in America. Nothing will be affected by Wilder-Fury’s announcement. How can it possibly affect UK PPV Sales ?

    It’s a cry over nothing, now stop acting like a women on her period, and get to buisness boys for the rest of the year.

    December looks mad packed.



    If Khan v Brook happens its going eat all the ppv sales. Can't see them doing chisora v Whyte as well. Khan v Brook would have to go December 1st

    I will admit I don't see why he's complaining about the announcement because tbh i dont see it "hurting" the AJ povetkin fight because people will be talking about the division

    He's 'complaining' because they were supposed to announce however long ago and have waited most likely just to piggyback of AJ as usual.

    What about if he put Whyte - Chisora on a Saturday fight night on the 22nd and not PPV?

    I think it should be doubled with Brook - Khan. That’s the only way I see either as a viable PPV.

    Announcing Wilder - Fury on AJ fight week, would just be pathetic by Finkel and Frank and Hearn would be in his rights to be annoyed.

    Hearn also has a point, that frank announcing shows without firm dates makes it difficult to plan his business and he cannot wait for ever.

    I doubt we will see two PPV in one night- If the promoters don’t, then Sky or BT will surely pull rank and make he decision. Whichever way you look at it, it’s bad for bob businesses in an already over inflated PPV market.

    Another interesting thing I think is what if Hearn missed the actual reason for the delay but did push FW into revealing something. Notice he keeps stating its due to negotiations with venue's. Maybe it is.
    Perhaps they cannot get the money they need or were expecting from the venue..

    Eddie Hearn and his whole stable of fighters and cronies have been spreading the idea that even if Wilder-Fury is announced, "Fury will pull out injured". That's potentially damaging to any fight's sales and disruptive to potential sponsors, and can only assume it is intended to cause such doubt and suspicion to all concerned.

    Anyway, watching the video, Hearn didn't really complain about the potential announcement. He started like he wanted to, but seemed to realize actually an announcement on AJ's fight week makes sense for everyone.
