“You will never, ever have a fight like this again.

He also previously said the PPV will not cost £ 40 after Simon Jordan suggested Sky Sports raise the price of the event.
Hearn explained: “I don’t know where these rumors are coming from.
“Again, I haven’t discussed the price of the PPV, I certainly don’t think it will be £ 40.
“So, nothing has been discussed, nothing has been established.
“I started getting some tweets and some direct messages, ‘You’re a shame! £ 40 PPV.’
“I was like, ‘Where did you come from? No discussion.
“I like Simon Jordan, but I don’t know where they got it from?”
