Prizefighter: The Heavyweights To Go International?

By Terence Dooley

Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sports has told Sky Sports that he is hoping to put together an International version of Prizefighter: The Heavyweights later this year.  Hearn did not name any names but he believes that the lure of a one night knockout contest could entice “former champions” as Matchroom seek to expand the popular format.

Hearn, however, was keen to stress that the event would be open to upcoming UK fighters as he bids to keep the format relevant to the British scene.  Certainly, the addition of overseas names would give fresh impetus to the competition, especially if Hearn can entice former world title holders (after all there is plenty of them about) to these shores.
