Eddie Hearn suffers a bizarre headbutt that causes him to slash his head open when he is celebrating Eduardo Nunez’s knockout victory.

During the jubilation that followed Eduardo “Sugar” Nunez’s technical knockout victory last night, Eddie Hearn found himself in need of stitches as a result of his fervent celebration.

Nunez is a fighter who is signed to Matchroom Boxing, which is Hearn’s promotional organization. On February 16, he competed against Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov in Tajikistan in an Indian Boxing Federation super featherweight title eliminator.

Following the successful completion of the technical knockout, he triggered a raucous celebration among his promoter, which culminated with Hearn hitting a pot that was suspended above his head.

Michael Benson, the editor of talkSport boxing, reported on camera footage of the aftermath of the error made by the British boxer. Benson wrote the following:

“Eddie Hearn has cut his head open while jumping up to celebrate his fighter Eduardo ‘Sugar’ Nunez’s win over Shavkat Rakhimov in their IBF final eliminator in Russia today.”
It is possible to hear the boxing promoter yelling the following message toward the end of the video:

“Let’s go ‘Sugar’ Nunez!”

Eddie Hearn previews Anthony Joshua vs. Francis Ngannou

On March 8, Anthony Joshua and Francis Ngannou are scheduled to engage in a violent confrontation that has been eagerly anticipated.

Fans of mixed martial arts and boxing were taken aback by “The Predator”‘s outstanding performance against the WBC champion Tyson Fury in the previous year. This was Ngannou’s first time boxing, and he gave ‘The Gypsy King’ a hard fight over all ten rounds before ultimately losing by a split decision. This resulted in a great deal of outrage among the crowd.

In what has been described as a potential “knockout chaos” by Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, the former UFC champion will now face off against ‘AJ’.

Due to the fact that both of these fighters possess unquestionable knockout power, the interpretation that the head of Matchroom Boxing has for the fight has a good chance of coming true.

Before Ngannou made his debut in boxing, there were concerns regarding whether or not his punching power would be able to be transferred from mixed martial arts gloves to boxing gloves, which are larger, more cushioned, and weigh 16 ounces.

However, all of those worries were answered when ‘The Predator’ knocked out Fury with a counter left hook that was perfectly timed during their fight.

Eddie Hearn was interviewed by Matchroom Boxing prior to the fight between Anthony Joshua and Ngannou, which was scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia. In the interview, he stated the following:

“This is the very first time that ‘AJ’ has competed against someone who is larger than him, both in terms of size and bulk. In general, that is intimidating, but it is probably not for ‘AJ’. There are two gentlemen who are capable of turning off your lights in such a manner. And that is exactly what people want to see occurring in Riyadh: complete and utter catastrophe. My statement was that this conflict may be resolved in a fraction of a second, and I am hoping that it will go our way.
