Eddie Hearn posts emotional NHS message after father Barry suffers heart attack

Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has posted an emotional message after his 71-year-old father suffered a minor heart attack. Anthony Joshua’s promoter paid tribute to the NHS staff, who are already under intense pressure because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Barry Hearn founded promotions company Matchroom Sport, of which his son runs the boxing branch.

He is also chairman of the Professional Darts Corporation and is the former chairman of Conference side Leyton Orient.

Eddie Hearn tweeted: “As if we can’t thank the NHS enough, I want to particularly thank the staff at Broomfield & Basildon.

“My dad @BarryHearn was taken to hospital on Sunday after a minor heart attack and was operated on yesterday.

“He is up and well and returns home today in good spirits! Thank you.”
