Eddie Hearn says he gets 40 phone calls a day from obsessed fan and finally answered to 'tell him how it is' | The Sun
18th April 2023

EDDIE HEARN said an obsessed fan rings him up to 40 times a day – and he finally answered to confront the troll.

Hearn revealed in an interview with iFL TV that his phone number has been leaked online.

And it led to one avid man bombarding him with daily calls until the boxing promoter picked up.

And Hearn – who has over 1million followers on Twitter – was left to question what the unknown caller was doing with his life.

Hearn said: "I've got people who phone me up all the time, just fans who are doing nothing with their lives and sitting at home all day.

"I don't normally pick them up but there's one guy – he's probably watching this – he phones me about 400 times a week on a private number.

"And every now and then, I'll pick it up. And he'll go, 'Eddie, how are ya? What ya doing?' And I actually had a conversation with him.

"I said, 'What the f*** are you doing?' And he goes, 'What do you mean?' And I went, 'How many times have you phoned me today?'

"I dunno, it could be literally over the course of a couple of hours 30, 40. I said, 'What are you doing with your life?'

"And he's like, 'What do you mean?' And I'm like, 'Literally, the highlight of your day is sitting there, phoning me, seeing if I'll pick up or not.'

"And even if I do pick up, I'm just going to tell you how it is and you ain't going to enjoy the conversation.

"I was like, 'Do you work?' 'No, no, no, not at the moment.'

"I said, 'The f*** are you doing? Get out there and f***g sort your life out. Change your life.'"

Hearn took the surprise call amid negotiations for Anthony Joshua's next fight, having beaten Jermaine Franklin, 29, on April 1.

Joshua is set for talks over a super-fight in Saudi Arabia in December against either Deontay Wilder, 37, or Tyson Fury, 34.
