The growth of Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing has been more than evident in recent years. Two days before the rematch between Alexander Povetkin and Dillian Whyte this Saturday, another great event will take place in Gibraltar as an unprecedented place for boxing.
Hearn’s project, following his father Barry’s footsteps, started with the UK as the center of operation but his main goal was to expand in a way never seen before and contribute to boxing worldwide. Matchroom’s projects have ranged from the more traditional to the riskiest and have focused on reaching new destinations with colorful events like the one they will have this Saturday in the middle of the sea.
But this is not the first time that the British company and Hearn have impacted the world in this way. It is worth mentioning the Matchroom Fight Camp, which was held in the promoter’s own backyard, in Brentwood, and served as a bubble for boxing in the midst of the pandemic and gave a big boost to the sport in tough times.
Its recurring shows in the United States have been a great complement to the already large North American market and events like the one held on August 15th in the streets of Tulsa, Oklahoma City, have stood out.
Hearn has also taken on the task of promoting fighters from around the world such as Hiroto Kyoguchi, who made his debut in America with his company, and was instrumental in the return of “Canelo” Alvarez when the boxing star’s activity was threatened by legal differences.
The WBA is proud to work hand in hand with Matchroom and Hearn in favor of boxing and applauds the great projects they have for the discipline. They will continue to grow.
