Eddie Hearn

May 2020, so the show ended?

New: June 29th 2019. I’m a Britt living in and out of USA. York Hall beats New York, Beat Vegas. I took Harold Lederman there many times. He was once interviewed by New York Times and said his favorite venue is York Hall and he’s judge all over the world, Ali, Holmes, Tyson......he knows a good venue.

How does Eddie Hearn have the energy and time to have a family and the most powerful man in boxing, and have a podcast.....I don’t know I’m just glad he does it. Eddie I climbed to 7000 feet today, thanks for keeping me company. You are the man. I remember going to shows run by your dad, but you’ve stepped up since those epic days. Thanks man. Mike Hills

Excellent Work Eddie!

As a sports fan from Michigan, was excited to see a new podcast from Eddie Hearn. Turns out that this is an excellent podcast. Wonderful guests, great questions, and overall a great job! The Wayne Rooney interview was absolutely top notch! Thanks for the hard work!

Requires refinement

Love Eddie to bits, watch/listen to all his interviews and have huge admiration for what he’s done for British and global boxing. I think he’s a little too used to being the other side of the mic; frequently interrupted Wayne and spoke about himself alot, most of which we all already know about him. I’m sure with more of these he’ll refine his approach. And of course i’ll continue listening to the whole series...
