But Hearn already has his sights set on other huge fights despite the ongoing appeal in Benn’s UKAD (UK Anti-Doping) case.

Speaking to talkSPORT the Matchroom promoter said:

“We’ve got some massive fights for Conor Benn, Eubank is the biggest one out there.

“It’s one of the biggest fights in British boxing, it’s the biggest fight for Chris Eubank, it’s the biggest fight for Conor Benn but we’ll see, we’ll see how easy it is to make that fight. As I said Conor Benn is under contract for us for a year.”

Asked if the fight would be in the UK, Hearn continued:

“That would be our absolute preference, we’ve had offers for that fight internationally but I want to make that fight in Wembley or Cardiff in December.

“Bearing in mind the size of the fight, probably the biggest fight in British boxing right now, obviously AJ [Anthony Joshua] vs [Tyson] Fury is the bigger one, but it’s an absolute monster of a fight, logically it’s one to make, but you never know in this game.”
