Hearn Wants Fireworks from Hitchins

Hearn wants Hitchins (17-0, 7 KOs) to look impressive against the unbeaten Lemos (29-0, 19 KOs) to help increase his star power.

His last fight wasn’t the kind of performance that Hearn wanted to see from him, as he boxed and moved his way to a less than thrilling 12 round unanimous decision win over Jose Zepeda. For Hitchins to become a star, he’s got to mix it up more, and stay in the pocket.

“A brilliant night of action from top to bottom. Hitchins, I think he’s in the same kind of mold as the Haneys, Shakur Stevenson, and from the same team,” said Eddie Hearn to Boxing Social about Richardson Hitchins, who fights on Saturday night against Gustavo Lemos in the main event on DAZN. “He just needs to make a statement.

Lemos: The Perfect Foil?

“I know how good he is, but if he can get Lemos out of there in style, it would make a statement. It’s difficult to say to a fighter, ‘Go in there, mix it up and trade’ when they’re winning every round. The art of boxing is to hit and not get hit.

“If you want to grab everyone’s attention and become a star, then you’ve got to be exciting, and Richardson has the ability to do it. In this fight, I think Lemos will come looking for him. He’s a big puncher, he’s 29-0. So, if he can stop him and make a statement, it would just help him.

“When you are as good as he is, people will always be looking for an excuse not to fight you,” said Hearn.
