Hearn says there might be more to Fisher than his ability to sell tickets

Johnny Fisher is a character.

The heavyweight prospect dispatched of Dmytro Bezus in a round, needing only two minutes and 51 seconds to score the stoppage.

After the fight, the blue-collar fighter spoke to his fans. 

“As I go up the levels it is about setting things up, because it is going to be different,” Fisher said. “But we gave people the round one knockout."

“Now it is time to get some donuts and beers…”

The 24-year-old heavyweight, known as ‘The Romford Bull’ to his fans, now boasts a record of 11-0 with 10 early wins. Fisher is seen as a regional talent who could sell tickets but now it seems that his promoter, Matchroom Boxing, sees him as a bit more. 

“But, for me, look how many people I brought out to Las Vegas,” said Fisher. “Everyone of these people paid their hard-earned money to be here, and some people don’t bring this to a show in London. I brought more to Las Vegas, and that shows how loyal these people are. These are all my friends, these are all my family.”

Eddie Hearn, Fisher’s promoter, said: “From my side, I am starting to talk about a world-class heavyweight prospect now, not just a bloke from Romford who sells tickets. I want to see him back, April 13 in Manchester at the arena there on the undercard. I want to see him headline in London this summer, we have got to keep him active. He has been a little bit unlucky with injuries.”
