Eddie Hearn Slams Gervonta Davis for Leaking Negotiation Emails

Matchroom Boxing Chief Calls Out Davis

Eddie Hearn has criticized Gervonta Davis for leaking negotiation emails regarding a potential fight with Conor Benn. The Matchroom Boxing chief attempted to arrange a bout between the WBA (regular) lightweight champion and Benn following their recent Twitter exchange.

Frustated Hearn Speaks Out

Negotiations ultimately fell through, leading Davis to share an email he received from Hearn on social media. Hearn expressed his frustration, stating, "I don’t know why I waste my time with this guy, [he’s] like a baby."

Offer Details Revealed

Hearn had anticipated Davis rejecting his initial offer, which he believed to be more lucrative than what Davis would earn for a potential fight with Frank Martin. Hearn disclosed, "We made him an eight-figure offer with plenty of upside."

Well Wishes Despite Differences

Despite the failed negotiations, Hearn holds no animosity towards Davis, acknowledging him as a great fighter. He wished Davis luck in his future bouts, including the upcoming fight against Frank Martin.

Ring Absence

Davis has not entered the ring since defeating Ryan Garcia last April. In contrast, Benn recently secured a victory over Peter Dobson in his latest bout earlier this month.
