Hearn previously told talkSPORT about the Fight Camp series: “We talked about doing boxing in studios and there’s a lot of people doing it.

“I just feel like when you are talking about a gladiatorial sport, like boxing, you need to create that moment, that energy, not just for the viewer at home but the fighter as well.

“We’ve got big plans. It looks fantastic…

“You have to be compelling and innovative and come up with ideas like Matchroom Fight Camp, where broadcasters are going to say, ‘Wow, we love that.’”
