Eddie Hearn Responds To Fan's Desperate Plea For A New Boxing Game

Eddie Hearn has admitted that he is hopeful a new boxing game will hit the market this year and insisted that it "would be huge."

Fans have been longing for a new boxing game since EA Sports' fan-favourite Fight Night franchise went dormant.

And Anthony Joshua's promoter, 40, said that he has been pushing for a new game "for a while."

Hearn tweeted: "I've been trying on this for a while -- hopefully this Year it can happen -- would be huge."

The boxing promoter also held a Q&A on social media in 2018 and said that he was trying to convince EA Sports to bring the Fight Night series back.

Hearn revealed last year that he had written to the Fight Night publisher about the high demand from fans for a new boxing game.

Fans have also backed Hearn's calls for a new Fight Night game and flooded social media with messages of support.

American boxer Claressa Shields also suggested that a new Fight Night game would be coming to PlayStation 4, but she would retract her comments last year.

EA Sports announced last year that Fight Night Round 4's servers would close in March, which sparked rumours that a new entry could be coming out.

Fight Night Round 4 was released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and mobile devices.

The 2009 game would be followed up with the release of Fight Night Champion on PS3, Xbox 360 and iOS devices.
