Eddie Hearn Twitter: How Much Is The Man Himself Worth?

It’s not secret that Hearn isn’t strapped for cash. Since taking over his father’s role as a boxing promoter, the 40-year-old has fast become one of the most influential figures in the boxing world.

Being the driving force behind some of the biggest fights in history, including Anthony Joshua vs. Klitshcko, he’s also reaped their financial gains as well.

The boxing promoter from Essex is the son of Matchroom Sport founder, Barry Hearn. The company has a TV contract with Sky Sports, which agrees to broadcasting 20 boxing shows a year; all of which Hearn is the mastermind behind.

One of Eddie’s biggest deals, Joshua vs. Klitchsko, saw 1.5m pay-per-view buys at ÂŁ19.95 each. The exact figure isn’t needed to know that’s an overwhelming amount of money… 

Hearn is thought to be worth $50million; and he’s not even the one in the ring…

Eddie Hearn Twitter: No Context Hearn

The account tweets clips of the Matchroom boss, taken from interviews and tweets them alongside funny ‘out of context’ captions. It isn’t a parody of the boxing giant but rather a tribute to his one liners and comical timing.

Eddie Hearn Twitter: Meet The Brains Behind It

The creator of the account told SPORTbible he’d noticed the ‘no- context’ accounts were a real niche on twitter, so decided Hearn was ‘the perfect person to use’ for his own.

Andy, whose last name remains anonymous, described the reaction as ‘absolutely ridiculous’:

“The account’s just a few hours short of being ten days old, but it’s achieved 5.4m impressions and I must be getting over a thousand quote tweets or mentions per hour. The account’s nearly broken my phone [laughs].”

Unprecedented Success!

To put the reaction in to perspective, the following count had grown by 1000 between the time of Andy starting the interview and it ending.

With such a large audience, comes more content, with more and more people using the hashtag. Andy explained how he keeps on top of his new found commitment:

“I try to retweet the best quote tweets every couple of hours, but I’m wary I’m missing so many.”

But, it’s not all bad:

“In the past couple of days, I’ve spent a fair few hours reading what everyone has been quote tweeting — they have had me in stitches of laughter.”

Has Hearn Seen The Account?

It seems Hearn isn’t one to take himself too seriously, and loves what they’ve done with the page:

“I spoke [to] Dan Canobbio from CompuBox about the account and he mentioned he had shown Eddie and that he’s a fan of the account.”

Andy also highlighted:

“It’s sent a fair few extra followers his way, too.”

The account has gone down a storm with tweeters:

“The best account on Twitter bar none! Been in stitches since yesterday. @EddieHearn must be loving this.”

A second tweeted:

“@NoContextHearn is quite possible the best Twitter account to ever exist. Impossible not to laugh at every tweet.”

Looking to the future, Andy talked about his plans for the account:

“Hard to say now, but Eddie has so much material I could go on forever. I guess I’ll keep going until the laughter stops. The feedback from people has been great.”
