Hearn Hits Back at Frank Warren on Haye-Chisora Bout

During a recent interview with BBC Sport, Eddie Hearn fired back at promoter Frank Warren. Hearn says Warren is lacking respect for the sport of boxing of boxing by moving forward with the heavyweight grudge fight between David Haye and Dereck Chisora, which takes place on the 14th in July at Upton Park in West Ham.

The British Boxing Board of Control will not sanction the fight because neither boxer holds a license under their organization. They have threatened to remove licenses from anyone involved, Warren. Haye gave back his license after an October 2011 retirement. Chisora had his license stripped away for his Munich press conference brawl with Haye in March.

"You would have thought someone that has been involved in the sport for so long would have a lot more respect for the game," Hearn said of Warren. "Greed and desperation meant they weren't prepared to wait. Anyone who cares about boxing should care about this fight taking place and know that this is a pivotal moment for the sport”

"Frank Warren is set to make a lot of money from this show. But it's doing no good for the sport of boxing. When you join up to a set of rules, you abide by them. If you don't, you get penalized and punished. They could have waited four or five months and it might have been allowed by our governing body [the BBBofC], but now it's not. I understand the demand for the fight and casual fans may not understand everybody in boxing's disgust that this fight is looking to go ahead.

"It could totally dilute boxing in that another governing body can come in and run shows in this country, create new titles. It will roll on and on. The Board is backed into a corner and it will fight every inch of this. They've got the support of a lot of powerful people."

This idiot is just looking to make a name for himself, He would say things and get involve just because he wants to keep his fathers name going, At the end of the day Warren found a loophole here and he has exploit it, No promoter has any sort of high moral ground about this shiiiit.
