Starting this weekend boxing promoter & meme muse Eddie Hearn will stage five-bout fight nights via pay-per-view in his own 15 acre back yard in Essex, England. The series will span over the next four weekends (at least??) & you can see the lineups & how to watch HERE.
In an interview with The Sun U.S. Hearn said,
“It is a huge mission. We are going to turn our headquarters here into an outdoor venue for live boxing, with a full canopy in the middle of the garden and the ring overlooking London. We are building changing rooms for the fighters, setting up a space for a ring walk, and figuring out how we can do everything with as few people as possible."
As I was writing the blog I noticed him go live on Instagram & here were the main takeaways:
No word on if it will be as electric as the home-grown Rough 'N Rowdy's (word on the street - possibly coming back this Fall??) but if you live, eat, breathe & sleep with boxing on your mind it has to be pretty sweet to wake up in the morning, walk out back with your coffee and see this...
PS. Hearn x Large have met before & Large told me he's as tall & handsome as he is. Maybe some future combo?! Eh?! Eh?!
