We ask the committee about Eddie Hearn’s big move from Sky to DAZN
super weight competitor
I think so, he might go and do better with a financial giant like DAZN behind him. His promotion and fight nights so far in the United States have been very impressive.
Former British Champion
Yeah. Sky Sports is the best, production and everything. But DAZN with the Matchroom team, they know what they’re doing. The price will probably go up from £1.99 a month, but I think it will work. Could be better.
Boxing manager and promoter
It’s inevitable that Eddie would be less well known in the UK without the Rolling Sky PR. It will be pivotal for Eddie to find the money to keep Anthony Joshua In DAZN. If he could do that, he would undoubtedly go through a worrisome phase successfully. If AJ is lost its effect may wane very quickly.
Promoter and Manager
It’s really hard to say. DAZN has very deep pockets but can you make a channel here in the UK and keep it with mostly boxing and some outdoor football? Only time will prove it. The world of content and how it is presented is changing at an amazing speed.
Commentator and podcast
Leave this slave on a deserted island with nothing and he will be a millionaire in a week. So probably, yes. And I like a lot of DAZN chat.
Depends on how you define success. He will undoubtedly give dozens of great shows and earn his fighters a huge amount of money in the process. But what will boxing on the app do to the sport and interest in it in the long run? The jury is out.
