Eddie Hearn planning to make Fight Camp back garden bouts an annual event, considering reality show akin to Dana White's UFC Contender Series

Eddie Hearn has declared that his Fight Camp back garden shows at Matchroom HQ will not be a one-off.

During an Instagram Live Q&A, the promoter revealed talks are underway to replicate the event next summer and continue it annually.

He also teased a potential reality series relating to the Fight Camp brand.

Hearn then expanded on the details, telling the Mail: “We will be definitely back next year in our garden.

“The spin off from this will be big for us – Fight Camp is now a brand name.

“I am already talking to broadcasters about a reality show for Fight Camp, and possibly a show in the style of Contender.

The set-up is impressive

“The interest is there because something like this has not been done before.

“I am talking about taking it to other countries, possibly the Middle East.

“Regardless of Covid restrictions we will be back next year.”

Hearn previously told talkSPORT: “We talked about doing boxing in studios and there’s a lot of people doing it.

“I just feel like when you are talking about a gladiatorial sport, like boxing, you need to create that moment, that energy, not just for the viewer at home but the fighter as well.

“We’ve got big plans. It looks fantastic…

“You have to be compelling and innovative and come up with ideas like Matchroom Fight Camp, where broadcasters are going to say, ‘Wow, we love that.’”
