Eddie Hearn Rips at Frank Warren: He's a Dinosaur!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport is ripping out at his domestic rival, Frank Warren, over comments made in a separate interview. Hearn claims Warren is using Carl Froch's name to promote WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly.

A few weeks ago Warren made an offer to Hearn for Froch to move up in weight to face Cleverly - but he says Warren knew the fight would never happen because Froch has a contractual commitment to fight Lucian Bute in a March rematch and the Nottingham star has no intention of moving up in weight.

"He knew that because of our obligation to Lucian Bute and because of the weight - the fight would never happen. He's living on a different planet. He's a dinosaur. I've seen him in interviews recently saying 'why would I sit down and talk with Eddie Hearn, I've been in this business for years and years and years.' He may know more about boxing than me, but I guarantee I know more about new-age promoting than him......and how to promote a show, how to get the fans excited, how to build an atmosphere and give the fans of today, of the modern age, what they want," Hearn said to iFilmLondon.

[QUOTE=Kilrain;12576542]Don't know where Hearn's getting the idea that he puts on better 'new age' shows? Their respective shows are pretty comparable. The biggest British fight this year - for atmosphere, especially - was Haye-Chisora, which Warren promoted very well (I…
