Eddie Hearn confirms Matchroom Fight Camp will return for 2021 ‘Festival of Boxing’ with target bouts revealed

Matchroom Fight Camp is set to return in July or August of 2021, Eddie Hearn has confirmed.
As the coronavirus pandemic halted boxing in the UK last year, the sport was absent for five months.

When it was allowed to return in late summer, fights were only permitted behind closed doors.
Rather than head to a studio, Hearn decided to stage fights in the Matchroom HQ back garden on four consecutive weekends in August.
He branded the event ‘Fight Camp’.
Following the first year’s success, the promoter now intends to revive Fight Camp for 2021.

When asked about the possibility of a heavyweight clash between Joseph Parker and Derek Chisora, Hearn told iFL TV: “We wanna make that fight.
“Joseph Parker fights Junior Fa on February 27, then I’d like to go into the Chisora fight in the summer.
“We’re planning Fight Camp, how mad is that? We’re planning Fight Camp now for July/August.
“We might be coming back here [Matchroom HQ back garden] or we might be doing it outside somewhere bigger.
The event was uniqueMark Robinson/Matchroom
“We’re gonna do a festival of boxing this summer.
“So yeah, Fight Camp is back underway and we’re planning all those fights now.”
Hearn also named a Scott Fitzgerald vs Anthony Fowler rematch and Joshua Buatsi vs Callum Johnson as target bouts for Fight Camp 2021.
