“It’s stubbornness” – Eddie Hearn slaps Dana White
The boxing head of the match room has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Hearn has suspended a number of fights in the United States and Britain and marks the UFC’s decision to hold incredible events.
Hearn told Express Sport, “I would like to think that in boxing there is no one more” roll up your sleeves and go “than me.” He added that even he wouldn’t be thinking of hosting an event yet, “I don’t even think about the options, not even the radar. “
Hearn regards the UFC movement as stubborn. However, he admits that this is one of the things that made Dana White successful. The promoter also opted for the ESPN broadcaster.
“I’m pretty surprised ESPN is going ahead, they obviously want notes and money. But with Sky Sports and DAZN, I wouldn’t be allowed to host events at the moment. It’s in bad taste to be honest. ”
Hearn admits that he admires White for “cracking” because he knows he can do something after being questioned and struck off. At the same time, he also says: “Come on, don’t be crazy.” “
UFC 249 will run according to schedule
The main event of UFC 249 sees Tony Ferguson fighting Justin Gaethje. It will be for the interim lightweight championship. This fight was fixed at short notice while the lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is stuck in Russia.
In addition to this, there will be eleven other fights. Rose Namajumas will face Jessica Andrade in a fight against straws for women. Dana White insured ESPN, “We will do everything beyond that to make sure everyone is safe. “
White hopes that other sports will follow his example and continue to organize regular sports. A BoxingScene article says that Regis Porgrais, who was to face Maurice Hooker at a show next week, called Hearn to follow in White’s footsteps. Unfortunately, boxing will not join them because Hearn is not afraid to sit still during the pandemic.
