Hearn signed the young heavyweight. This one could be the new face of the division


23-year-old Australian top heavyweight prospect Justice Honey (7-0, 4 KOs) has signed a contract with a promotion company Matcroom Boxing Eddie Hearn.

The contract of the fighter with the previous promoter (D&L Events) expired at the end of last year. All the world’s leading promoters tried to sign Hani (Top Rank, PBC), but he chose Hearn.

The promoter made it clear that Honey would box all over the world – “and in America, and in Britain, and in Australia.” And he even voiced potential rivals – these are Demsey McKean, as well as ex-world champions Joseph Parker and Lucas Brown.

“The plan is to have three fights a year. One each in the US, Britain and Australia, says Hearn. “I think he’ll headline a few of our shows in Australia.”

Hani is a talented and very technical fighter who still has problems: injury prone (which is why he missed the Olympics 2020), trying too hard to amuse the audience with a slugfest. In November, he rolled the brightest mahach with a knockout.
