What Is Eddie Hearn’s Net Worth?
Eddie Hearn has a net worth of $50 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
This has been acquired throughout the course of his two-decade career as a sports promoter.
He is the Chairman of Matchroom Sport and Matchroom Boxing, as well as a director of the Professional Darts Corporation.
He is the son of English sporting events promoter and OBE Barry Maurice William Hearn, who created Matchroom Sport and is well-known on the internet.
Eddie’s father, Barry Hearn, created the company Matchroom Sport. Eddie Hearn is focused on ensuring that the company’s television boxing arrangement with Sky Sports in the United Kingdom is fulfilled. In 2018, Eddie Hearn announced the first $1 billion deal in boxing when Matchroom secured a deal with DAZN to stream shows in the United States. Hearn has worked with IFLTV in the past and is well-known on YouTube. Amir Khan, Anthony Joshua, Oleksandr Usyk, Kell Brook, Khalid Yafai, Ryan Burnett, Dillian Whyte, Artur Beterbiev, Danny Jacobs, Luke Campbell, Demetrius Andrade, Tony Bellew, Maurice Hooker, Tevin Farmer, Katie Taylor, Devin Haney, Rocky Fielding, Callum Smith, and others have all been promoted by Eddie Hearn.
Eddie, who was born in Essex, has always been interested in sports and has excelled at cricket and football.
Eddie was educated at the Brentwood School in Essex, which is a private school. Due to his bad academics, this was his first exposure to sports, where he began to play cricket and football.
He next went to Havering Sixth Form College in Hornchurch, which was non-selective. His father persuaded him to study by promising him £1,000 if he got a C or above in his A-levels.
Following his A Levels, he worked for a sports management company in London representing golfers before joining his father’s company, Matchroom, to promote online poker.
At a poker game, he met boxer Audley Harrison and decided to help him restore his career by securing him a bout with heavyweight champion David Haye, which was the start of his boxing promoter career.
The Essex native got an exclusive boxing deal with Sky Sports in 2015, which allowed him to broadcast up to 20 shows each year until 2021. He inked a new deal with streaming service DAZN when that ended.
With Matchroom, he now promotes boxing events all around the world and streams them live on the subscription service.
Eddie has two daughters, Sophia and Isabella, who he raises with his wife Chloe.
The promoter’s family lives near Billericay, Essex.
Eddie owns several homes, but his Los Angeles property is the most notable.
He has 1.2 million Instagram followers, but he keeps his personal life secret and doesn’t share much about his family.
This week, he did a new interview on iFL TV with YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul, which has gone viral.
Standing next to the online sensation, he stated that Jake Paul has “absolutely no chance” of becoming a world champion.
“Everyone has a dream,” the 42-year-old from Essex remarked, “but I don’t think there’s any chance he can beat a world champion and become world champion.”
Jake, on the other hand, disagreed, adding, “Tyron Woodley, a five-time world champion, is a legitimate fighter.”
The Chairman of Matchroom Sport Group has been seen with a lot more than Jake Paul and is one of the most well-known figures in boxing right now.
