Season 3: #18 Barry Hearn
Promoter Barry Hearn is now an OBE. He's also in the International Boxing Hall of Fame and has been involved with the sport since the 1980s.
The patriarch of Matchroom, he's been a dominant figure in darts, snooker and fishing, among other sports. In boxing, however, the father of promoter Eddie, has worked with the likes of Chris Eubank, Frank Bruno, Naseem Hamed and many, many others. Here he recounts some of the highs and some of the lows from his long, rewarding and successful career to Boxing Life Stories host Tris Dixon.
