We all know that anyone who isn't a fan of Eddie will be too busy knocking one off in their Super-Ted pyjamas to respond.

I wouldn't say I am a fan, but I do watch a lot of Matchroom shows and watch his YouTube videos a fair bit.

There is a lot I don't like about his shows, business strategy, and general conduct, but there are far worse people in boxing, and much worse shows made.

In general I think he has been good for boxing overall and not all the stick he gets is justified. But he is a big smug, cheesy berk.

Great at his job and good in front of the camera which makes for interesting interviews, but his matchmaking is fucking dangerous.

Cries about Patrick Day but lets Kell Brook fight Golovkin.

Was lining Dave Allen up for Povetkin. Can see Allen being fed to Hrgovic or Gassiev in the new year.

And the belittling of Shelly Winkel was basically bullying via the media, must have been a fucking cunt at School.

Boxing would be boring without Hearn though, hes not in for life like Arum though. Arum from start to finish watches every fight at Top Rank events.

He clearly thinks Kugan is thick as fuck and blagged IFLs success though, he definitely respects Rob Tebbutt more :yep:yep

I understand where you're coming from but Brook was almost struggling for a big name, Khan had just fought canelo if I remember correctly and Brook as per usual had been fighting trash waiting for the Khan fight, hearn actually did a fantastic job in getting Brook that fight, sure it was a risk but its one Brook wanted to make, hearn did his job exactly as he's supposed to.
He didn't want him taking the spence fight either but ultimately the choice was with Brook and his team.

Again with Allen I can see your point, but hearn has played a blinder money wise for allen, he's a very very average fighter and hearn has got him pay days well above his level, I don't personally want to see Allen fight again but the decision is with Allen himself really, I just see hearn doing his best to make him money, even when Allen isn't technically a match room fighter. I do honestly believe hearn won't put Allen in such risky fights after the haney fight but we will see.

I really like hearn, sure he has his flaws but you have to wonder where British boxing would be without him. He does certain things I don't like but I do appreciate how much time he takes to do interviews, I'd say I watch most of the ones he does and there are a lot, I feel like we get a better insight into everything because he seems to do any interview he can.
I know at shows he's a pantomime villain but it would be good for fans to occasionaly show some appreciation at events. On paper that card on Saturday was actually really good, as was the one the week before, yet he will still get booed. Imagine how dull boxing would be right now if matchroom stepped out and we were just left with Warren, mcguigan and hennesey.

Mediocre podcast
Expected a lot better for 2hrs30mins of Hearn

They just went on about KSI Logan Paul for too long and current news in the boxing world rather than asking him stuff that people will want to listen to in a years time.
And True Geordies SJW sidekick managed to get in a derogatory slur about whites once within the opening. You can't listen to anything on his channel without him spouting some SJW shit about white people, racism, brexit, or Trump. You should watch their podcast with the Hodge Twins where he wore a basketball shirt and mentioned them being black about 6 or 7 times, and he automatically assumed that because they were black they hated Trump, when the Hodgetwins run probably the biggest Trump supporting Youtube channel with daily videos about him.

Suppose it's good for his channel though as it puts him in the PC good books and ensures he gets promoted

Haven't gotten to it yet. Was Hearn asked about Whyte? If so, what did he have to say?

no
the podcast was shit
theres probably only about 20mins of stuff that you couldnt get from any of the boxing channels. It just seemed like an extended promo and it didnt even seem to be Hearn's fault. It was TG and his SJW sidekick that kept the topic on current boxing news and they even went back to talking about the Logan Paul fight towards the end after they finally got off it.

Hearn did an about face on KSI Logan Paul once he realized there was money in it for him. He was very negative about the first fight they had.

If i woke up one morning and decided i would find the good in anyone i met today.

That idea would fall flat on its face if i was unfortunate enough to bump into Eddie Hearn.

After his million iFL videos, I can't think of a much more uninteresting guest for a podcast like this. At least for boxing fans like us; it's probably the opposite for the regular True Geordie listener.
