In an unprecedented move, Mayweather Promotions and Matchroom Sport have joined forces in order to promote events in the UK.
Prior to this agreement, Floyd Mayweather had suggested that he intented to promote fighters in the UK as had his close associate, Al Haymon. Mayweather’s close working relationship with Haymon suggests this move is the beginning of the Haymon boxing empire expanding into the UK.
Eddie Hearn, of Matchroom Sport, spoke to the Daily Telegraph about his deal with Mayweather stating it was “absolutely a good move.”
Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, told the Daily Telegraph: “Floyd Mayweather and Mayweather Promotions have formed a partnership with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Sport to hold a series of fights in the UK, matching our guys against his guys.”
