However, he said that Gib's asking price is very steep.

Per Dexerto, he explained:

"It is [realistic]. It's just a case of like... Gib wants $1 million doesn't he,"

"I don't know how big Gib is. I don't think he's as big as Jake Paul but I must say, I really enjoyed being around those boys and I thought they were brilliant all week."

Gib seemed to take notice of Hearn's comments and joked he was asking for five million.


Hearn is currently in the midst of promoting Anthony Joshua's huge rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr on Saturday.

The fight has drawn criticism for being held in Saudi Arabia and the Matchroom Boxing official has discussed it.

Speaking to The Guardian, he said:

"I was driving around today and you see House of Fraser, you go into the mall and see Gucci, Chanel, even Starbucks, major corporations who are willing to trade here."

"I can't sit here and say it has nothing to do with me, but the bottom line is, I am not a politician.

"As ruthless as it is, I've got a job to do for my fighter. It doesn't matter what I think, but I am happy and excited at how everything has gone."
