‘Don’t come running back to me when you’re struggling’ – Eddie Hearn hits back at Kell Brook
“Let’s just start with the Crawford fight and Sky situation – When Amir Khan boxed Terence Crawford, Kell Brook flew out there and he was talking to Top Rank.
“He had meetings with Top Rank probably about that fight and probably about other fights as well which didn’t go down very well with me to be honest with you. I’m an all or nothing kind of guy.
“I was never involved with one conversation they had with Top Rank regarding this fight, no consultation, no opinion from me, no part of the negotiations of the deal whatsoever.
“They chose to do this to all the them. Was that because they didn’t wanna pay me? Or they wanted to go their separate way?
“Once you turn your back on me, don’t ever turn round and start walking back to me. You’re either with me or you’re not.
“If you’re with me, I will give you everything as I have done for that young man for eight years.
“When I talk about loyalty, I talk about sitting in the hospital with him when he spunked the weight and didn’t even train for Carson Jones. Sitting in that hospital with him until five, six o’clock in the morning.
“Talking about flying out to Fuerteventura at 4 o’clock in the morning to go and deal with him and be with him in the hospital with the police there. I’ve been up to his house dozens of times, sat in his kitchen with him and his dad, and tried to get his career back on track.
“So don’t talk to me about loyalty. And what your loyalty is – after I had to give you fights against Jo Jo Dan, Kevin Bizier, Sergey Rabchenko, Michael Zerafa, Mark DeLuca, fights that I’ve done my conkers on over the years – you made the decision to turn your back on me.
“I don’t have a problem with that, but once you do that, you’re gone, I don’t have to fight for you anymore.
“Don’t come back when things ain’t working out and that’s what they did. They chose to have me not involved in this fight and when they couldn’t sell it to a UK partner, they come to me, ‘Oh I really wanted it on Sky for the fans’.
“Don’t talk b*******. You wanted the most money you could get. This is the reality.”
