sport breaking news

Eddie Hearn’s plans for Fight Camp 2021 were accidentally leaked by a well-meaning fan on Thursday.

The promoter was on the train to Newcastle to promote his show headlined by Lewis Ritson this weekend when he was asked for a photo by local railway worker Daryl Mitchelhill.

The fan posted the image on social media, not realising he’d included Hearn’s notes

Mitchelhill posted the picture on Twitter later in the afternoon along with a nice message for the promoter, but there was a problem.

Eagle-eyed fans realised that Hearn’s private notepad was included in the image.

On it, he’d written out his plans for bouts on the upcoming return of Fight Camp.

These shows were supposed to be kept quiet until an event next Monday, where Hearn will unveil the three-week series.
