๐Ÿšจ Eddie Hearns floats idea of HUGE Wayne Rooney fight at Old Trafford

Posted by

Eddie Hearn has proposed a fight between Wayne Rooney and YouTube star Jake Paul at Old Trafford.

Rooney is a big fan of the sport but in 2015 a video of him getting knocked out by Phil Bardsley went viral.

Hearn has still teased a showdown with YouTuber Jake Paul.

Speaking on The Overlap the Matchroom promoter said:

โ€œAfter every big fight, especially with a YouTuber, sometimes Wayne Rooney will fire me a message. Iโ€™ve said to Wayne, who had a very limited amateur pedigree but could still fight, imagine the shape youโ€™d get in (if you trained for a fight).

โ€œI told him, Wayne Rooney against Jake Paul at Old Trafford, imagine that. I get asked the question all the time, if there were two footballers (who wanted to fight)โ€ฆmost footballers follow boxing and secretly theyโ€™d all love to have a go. Everyone thinks they can fight.โ€

It remains unlikely Hearnโ€™s fantasy fight will ever happen but in the world of influencer boxing stranger things have occurred.
