Eddie Hearn Calls For EA Sports To Bring The Fight Night Franchise Back

Eddie Hearn has made it clear that he wants EA Sports to revive the fan-favourite Fight Night franchise.

The boxing series has been dormant since the release of Fight Night Champion in 2011 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and iOS devices.

And the Matchroom boss, 40, admitted that he has been in talks with the publisher about the demand for a new entry in the series.

Speaking to ThaBoxingVoice, Hearn said: "[...] because every time I tweet about it [Fight Night], it goes crazy!

"[...] I wrote to EA Sports, 'Do you realise how many questions I get about Fight Night games -- let me bring it back?'

"[They respond with] 'Oh, we're looking at it, we're looking at it.'

"So, EA Sports, if you're watching, or any big-game developer, we're here.

Anthony Joshua's promoter previously touched on the Fight Night series in a Twitter Q&A last October.

During the Q&A, a boxing fan asked him: "Boxing game for xbox? Your the man to make this happen."

And Hearn responded at the time: "Trying to convince @EASPORTS -- would be huge."

Fight fans were recently excited at the news that Fight Night could be returning on PlayStation 4 after boxer Claressa Shields said she would be in a boxing title.

She said at the time: "And I got a call the other day the PS4 is coming out with Fight Night 4, I believe.

"They wanna have me on the game system -- I'm stoked!"

But Shields later came out to clear up the confusion on her comments by saying that she will be involved in Round4Round Boxing and not Fight Night.

The popular franchise began with Fight Night 2004's release on PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
