Hearn was asked about the timing in an interview with social boxing and completely destroyed it.

«I think if I start preaching, people will complain about me anyway, but you always ask my opinion, my opinion is that I hate it. I hate it. We have worked very hard for women in boxing to be respected for their ability». , for their merits, for their hard work. One thing we must understand is that this is not boxing. And that needs to be pushed,» Hearn said. «All of those things, Misfits, Kingpyns, need to get so far away from professional boxing and we really need to disassociate ourselves from what it is.

«It does great numbers. It’s entertainment. It’s all of those things. And what we saw there tonight… For me, what I’m trying to do and what we’ve been doing for years and years, the sacrifices that people have made «. to be respected, it’s not boxing, but at the same time I think it’s more a reflection of society than a reflection of the good or bad of boxing. I don’t like».

In his point about the societal issue, Hearn lamented the lack of role models for children and how many people are just looking for «influence.»

«The current problem is that you want kids to have great role models. I have two daughters. When my daughters spend time with or meet Katie Taylor, it’s the best thing I’ve ever seen,» added the Matchroom Sport president. «Them, looking at a woman, who has achieved so much and has shown them that anything is possible, even when everything is against you, anything is possible. I think what we are missing in society right now are role models.

«And unfortunately, we now live in a world where role models, or influencers, aren’t necessarily doing things that the older generation, how I classify myself, or parents would want their kids to see or think is acceptable. Nothing that to do with women, nothing to do with men. You want your kids to behave a certain way. That’s not the way you’d want your kids to behave, in my opinion. This is just my opinion. But we live in a f — -ing mental world.
