Eddie Hearn Names Two Potential Opponents For Johnny Fisher


Eddie Hearn has two names in mind for Johnny Fisher to fight.

Fisher is 11-0 as a pro as the heavyweight is coming off a first-round TKO win over Dmytro Bezus and Hearn is hopeful Fisher will fight either Frazer Clarke or Fabio Wardley next time out.

“That nose has caused him [Wardley] some problems and he’s going to need to get that sorted, because he can’t go through that with that kind of damage and well done to Frazer who’s a lovely guy and I was straight on the phone to Johnny Fisher, I said, ‘That’s the level that I really feel that you’re at. [David] Adeleye and then those guys, and I want to see Johnny Fisher pushing fights like that because he can provide the same kind of heart, the same kind of energy and that domestic level, British championship, can be really exciting and well done to both. Tremendous fight,” Hearn said (via BoxingScene).

Clarke and Wardley just fought to a draw last weekend and although a rematch may be next, Hearn thinks either of them make sense as a logical next opponent for Fisher.

“What I saw was a tremendous fight, back and forward,” Hearn said. “I guess some people thought Frazer won, some people thought Fabio won, it was a really good British title fight. It just shows you how good those Lonsdale Belt domestic clashes are. We saw it with that fight, we saw it the other week with the Frank Warren show, we saw it with Reece Bellotti with Liam Dillon. Fantastic. Great for the sport. We want those fights. You don’t want those fights as a fighter. It’s going to take a lot of miles off the clock, both showed tremendous bravery and heart, but the damage done in those kind of fights is going to take a lot of miles off the clock off you career.”

Whether or not Johnny Fisher will get that step up in competition is to be seen.
