EDDIE HEARN paid Terri Harper’s £4,000 surgery on the broken hand she suffered retaining her WBC title.

Harper continued her unbeaten professional record on Saturday night with a ninth-round stoppage of Norwegian Katharina Thanderz.

Eddie Hearn paid the £4,080 to cover the cost of Terri Harper’s hand surgery

The victory ensured another successful defence of her WBC super-featherweight world title.

But the win – on the Katie Taylor undercard – was even more impressive considering she snapped a bone in her right hand in the fourth round.

The clean break required surgery and a private medical bill of £4,080 for the surgery, surgeon fees and an anaesthetist fee.

But Matchroom chief Hearn stepped in to pay for it all as she did not have medical insurance.

Harper, 24, tweeted a screenshot of the invoice and wrote: “Put this post on earlier about me learning a lesson for not having insurance.

“To then receive a message off @EddieHearn that he’s covering my operation cost.

“I can’t thank Eddie enough for such a kind gesture, something that he didn’t have to do! So grateful.”

The Yorkshire boxing star also took to Instagram to share a screenshot of her conversation with Hearn.
