Eddie Hearn couldn’t help but laugh after starting a live Sky Sports interview with a rather expletive message not realizing the cameras were rolling.
Supreme Matchroom Boxing is preparing to bring boxing back to fans on a regular basis from the comfort of its backyard in Brentwood, Essex.
As the world comes to a halt after the COVID-19 outbreak, the fact that the jovial promoter is coming back to do what he does best will be a welcome relief for fans.
And it looks like Hearn hasn’t lost any of its cheeky charm during the lockdown period, much to the embarrassment of Sky Sports’ presentation team in its bespoke media space.
At the start of the interview, Hearn was clearly unaware that it was being broadcast live and shouted “Shamone mother f ******”.
Within seconds of his hilarious blast, the promoter quickly realizes that Sky cameras are filming live and broadcasting around the world as his face has fallen faster than an Anthony Joshua’s right-hand man.
Never the consummate professional, Hearn laughed at the accidental slip and carried on ahead of what promises to be an exciting night of British boxing.
Super welterweight rivals Sam Eggington and Ted Cheeseman will go head-to-head in the title this weekend with Fight Camp set to put on many more shows in the future.
