The UFC president is set to foray into the world of boxing and ahead of the promotion getting underway, he's hinted at a potential link-up with Matchroom Boxing boss Hearn as well as Joshua.

White was linked with signing Joshua to his stable in a sensational £385 million deal, but the Brit turned down his advances by inking a new promotional deal with Matchroom.

But 'The Baldfather' admits he likes Hearn and sees himself working with the 40-year-old and his prized asset.

"I said some things about Anthony Joshua that I liked him, he's a good-looking kid, he's got great energy, loved his fight with Klitschko," White explained.

"I wasn't a big fan of the Klitschko brothers those guys would put you to sleep by the second round.

"So, when I saw that fight I thought that was a great fight and I think Eddie Hearn took me the wrong way like I was going to take a run at his guy and all that stuff.

"So I think we kind of got off on the wrong foot. But then I met him, sat down, talked face-to-face and had a great meeting.

"I like Eddie Hearn, I definitely think that me and Eddie Hearn could work together."

White and Hearn met earlier this year and the latter is a "massive" fan of the UFC boss.

"I'm a massive Dana White fan. I don't want to sound like a fanboy but I have massive respect for what the UFC have done," he said.
