Eddie ready to Hearn his corn

Fast talking Eddie Hearn is the man driving Paul McCloskey towards another world title shot and he has his sights on being the dominant force in British boxing.

Up until his dad Barry came up with the Prizefighter series three years ago, Matchroom Boxing had been relatively low key, the days of Eubank, Collins et al were long gone.

But Eddie has taken up the reins and is determined to bring the biggest and best shows to the UK — including the mouthwatering double header featuring McCloskey and Carl Frampton at the Odyssey Arena.

Hearn is determined to plot the course towards another world title fight for former European champion McCloskey, who — as revealed in Sunday Life last weekend — faces hard-hitting Colombian Breidis Prescott on September 10.
