The work done by Eddie and Matchroom over the past few years has revolutionised British boxing  the target is to take over America. The stable boasted by Matchroom gives a great scope to take big name fighters over to the states. UK fighters selling out stadiums of up to 90,000 and pulling the biggest numbers in boxing history has become common practice, these results however 38 year old Hearn is almost exclusively accredited with the achievement.

In preparation for the upcoming events Hearn plans to sign some fantastic American talent. Several names have been thrown around the ring, however the likes of Errol Spence Jr, Deontay Wilder and Adrien Broner appear to carry the most weight.
