Eddie Hearn Abruptly Ends Katie Taylor Fight Press Conference After Conor McGregor Question

, Eddie Hearn Abruptly Ends Katie Taylor Fight Press Conference After Conor McGregor Question

Eddie Hearn, the Matchroom promoter, put an abrupt end to Katie Taylor's post-fight press conference after becoming fed up with questions about Conor McGregor. Taylor had just delighted her home crowd and defeated Chantelle Cameron on points, making her a two-weight undisputed world champion and solidifying her status as one of Ireland's legendary sporting superstars. However, the press conference took a sour turn when a journalist persisted in asking about McGregor's involvement in the event.

Taylor's Triumph and McGregor's Involvement

Katie Taylor, 37, joined Eddie Hearn in the media room after her victory to field questions from reporters about her epic win. However, the conference ended on a negative note when a journalist continued to inquire about UFC superstar Conor McGregor's association with the show. McGregor's Forged Irish Stout sponsored the event, but there were concerns leading up to the fight night due to controversial messages he posted on social media. Hearn had previously stated that he never considered severing ties with McGregor's brand, as the Irishman has been a significant supporter of Taylor and Irish boxing.

Hearn's Frustration and Shutting Down the Press Conference

Eddie Hearn believed he had addressed the McGregor issue sufficiently, so he was furious when the subject was brought up again following Taylor's victory. He expressed his exasperation by stating that he was tired of discussing it and accused the journalist of always looking for a negative angle. Hearn made it clear that McGregor's opinions were his own and had nothing to do with Katie Taylor, the show, or the company. He emphasized that the press conference was meant to celebrate Taylor's success and requested that no more questions be asked about McGregor. When the journalist insisted that the question had to be asked, Hearn ended the press conference, stating that the topic could be discussed privately at a later time.
