Matchroom Sports chairman Barry Hearn has backed how Michael Jordan was portrayed in the documentary The Last Dance

Legendary promoter Barry Hearn knows all about creating a sporting empire and when considering the mind and success of basketball icon Michael Jordan he sees the essence of someone who is able to reach heights only the few can attain.

Jordan's 'Last Dance' documentary on Netflix has largely received great acclaim, while some have been critical of the former Chicago Bulls star's approach to achieving success - believing his win-at-all-costs approach went too far.

Hearn, though, believes this mindset is necessary to be exceptional.
