Eddie Hearn: “We need to pay less attention to championship belts”


British promoter Eddie Hearn admitted that due to the difficult situation surrounding championship titles in modern professional boxing, he intends to rely less on them when organizing fights.

“No, of course we are not going to create our own belt. The thing is, we want to stop focusing on governing bodies. But when fighters think about belts, they think about those belts, so there won’t be a Matchroom belt. Never.

Today, you either adjust to one of the organizations, or do not interfere with it: “So, I have a mandatory applicant – goodbye.” Less attention to the belts, we spin too much around them, ”said Hearn.
