Eddie Hearn Says He'd Promote Coleen Rooney vs Rebekah Vardy Boxing Match For Charity
Forget KSI vs Logan Paul next month. Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn says he would promote a charity boxing fight between Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy and he's already suggested a potential date.
It all kicked off on Wednesday morning when Rooney posted a statement on social media. The 33-year-old claimed Vardy had been planting fake information about her life on Instagram, only to see the stories end up in the The Sun newspaper.
Coleen went on to claim that she blocked users on her private account, and that only Rebekah Vardy's account had viewed the stories.
It was all very personal.

Plenty of people had their say on the story, and now Matchroom promoter Hearn has given his thoughts on the matter.
He suggested organising a charity fight for Sport Relief in March next year.
"I'm only doing KSI against Logan Paul, they have had a fight before[But] for Sport Relief I would yeah, for charity." he told iFLTV.'s YouTube channel.
"You know what, they'd probably be quite decent as well. It would be massive wouldn't it? How many buyers? A million buys!"
Hearn gave Rooney credit for the way she went about her statement.
"I must say, I did find that fascinating. And I loved Coleen Rooney the way she wrote out like blah blah blah.
"And I was like obviously she's not going to say [who it is], and obviously it's just a mate - and it was, 'It's... Rebekah Vardy's account'. Dun dun dun.
"And Rebekah Vardy came back and said other people have access to her Instagram account, so..."
A number of hours after the posts went viral, Irish club Sligo Rovers also decided to join in with the jokes.
They announced that striker Ronan Coughlan had signed a new contract with the Premier Division club in truly unique fashion.
Coughlan, who has scored eight league goals this season, looked thrilled to be extending his stay at The Showgrounds but it was the way Sligo used the Rooney/Vardy references in the "amazing" Twitter post that grabbed people's attention.
"This has been a burden in our life for a few hours now and finally we have got to the bottom of it......"
