Derek Chisora Mentions Major Frank Warren Rival During Intense War Of Words In their London Press Conference
In a back and forth with WBC Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury‘s promoter Frank Warren, British Heavyweight Derek Chisora jokingly suggested that they should enlist Matchroom Boxing chairman Eddie Hearn to help sell out the 62,000-capacity Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for Fury Chisora 3 on December 3.
Derek Chisora “You know what, we should get Eddie Hearn on the phone and figure out how we’re going to sell out this stadium. Let’s get Eddie Hearn on the blower quickly.”
Frank Warren responded by claiming Eddie Hearn had “gone into hiding” after the controversy behind the Eubank Benn fight a couple of weeks ago. Hearn has since been in Australia and now Mexico at shows and not in the UK to respond to UK media and public criticism.
Chisora “He (Hearn) can help, he sells the stadiums every day”
Chisora has fought on Matchroom cards for around 6 years now and is likely sticking up for Hearn’s Matchroom at the press conference knowing that Warren/Fury would not appreciate the mention of Hearn’s name at their event.
