Hearn not promoting Tyson comeback

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

UK Promoter Eddie Hearn thinks he would receive a lot of criticism if he were to promote a Mike Tyson comeback fight. ”We all know my head can be turned for a few quid,” Hearn told Sky Sports. “You saw my KSI vs Logan Paul fight which I got stick for, but it was a roaring success and I really enjoyed it. It taught me a lot. Imagine if I said, ‘Mike Tyson is returning to the ring and I will promote him!’ The stick I’d get would be unbelievable. It’s NOT something I’m looking to do.”

  • Don’t particularly want to see MT return but surprised Hearn is turning his nose up at it.
    Surely he’ll get less stick than he did for the Youtubers.

  • “You saw my KSI vs Logan Paul fight which I got stick for, but it was a roaring success and I really enjoyed it.” Is this said to convince us that you wouldnt promote Tyson because you would get stick? From your own words you enjoy “stick”.

  • Hearn promotes great fights, the UK fights and number of spectators are the best, and still Hearn gets booed. I don’t blame him for not looking into this.

  • At least he seems better than Sulaiman. Maybe he should be the head of the WBC. Move it also out of corrupt Mexico.
