EDDIE HEARN is unsure whether he will be allowed to attend Dillian Whyte’s fight with Tyson Fury – but has offered to carry his spit bucket.
The 33-year-old heavyweight rivals are due to settle their score on April 23 at Wembley.
Eddie Hearn is unsure whether he will be allowed to attend Dillian Whyte’s fight with Tyson Fury
It came after a record-breaking £30.6million WBC purse which was won by Fury’s promoter Frank Warren.
Hearn, who bid £24m, as a result has no official role in the mega-fight but has promoted Whyte for large parts of the heavyweight’s career.
Due to his ongoing feud with Warren, the Matchroom Boxing boss is uncertain if he will be ringside for the fight.
But he has offered to show his support to Whyte in any way possible – even if it means carrying his bucket.
Hearn told Boxing Social: “I don’t think I’m allowed but I might go in the corner.
“I was thinking about going in the corner and carrying the bucket, I would do that.
“I would put on a Dillian Whyte T-shirt and carry the bucket in the corner. Imagine the buys.
“Might double the buys, the announcement, ‘Eddie Hearn to carry the bucket for Dillian Whyte’.”

Whyte has kept radio silent since the fight was confirmed as Hearn claimed there are still problems to be resolved.
He told talkSPORT earlier in the week: “There’s just loads of different problems to resolve.
“I don’t think it’s gonna affect the fight. But, to be honest with you, I’m so glad I’m not involved.
“Because I’ll just turn up or whatever I’ll do, tune in and watch it. Hopefully they both get in the ring and give everybody a great fight.”
