Eddie Hearn Net Worth, Wife, Dad – Barry Hearn, Age, Height and Other Facts

In recent times, it’s like everything worthy of note about boxing in the United Kingdom has had input from English boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn. Such is Hearn’s influence in the sport that he has been likened to the legendary American sports promoter, Don King, although the two are very much different when it comes to their ethical approaches to the business of sports promotion.

Read on to find out more about Hearn’s family and how he got into the business as well as what he has been able to achieve in the sport.

Biography (Age)

On the 8th of June, 1979, Edward Hearn was born to Susan and Barry Hearn in Essex, England. It is not clear what his mother Susan did for a living but his father Barry, on the other hand, was an accountant turned sports promoter, whose work in the 70s and 80s laid the foundation of the business his son Eddie controls today. He has one sibling, a sister named Katie.

Details about Eddie Hearn’s childhood are not available. It is only known that he attended Brentwood School in Essex where he participated in almost all school sports activities and did not perform well in his academics. As the story goes, after leaving school, Hearn decided to become a boxer due to his father’s involvement in the sport. He spent some time as an amateur boxer before leaving the ring to take a job as a double-glazing window telemarketer. In the next few years, Hearn joined his father’s company, Matchroom Sport, and has since risen to become a managing director.

Eddie Hearn’s Net Worth

Eddie Hearn has an estimated net worth of £20million. He has been able to amass his huge wealth through his very successful career in boxing promotions. Hearn serves as the group managing director of Matchroom Sport, a sports promotion company that has fighters such as Anthony Joshua, Amir Khan, and Tony Bellew, under its management. With such headlining fighters under him, Hearn has been able to sell-out boxing events in stadiums all across the UK, which has all contributed to increasing his stock.

Family – Wife

Despite being one of the most talked about people in the United Kingdom, with regards to the boxing sport, Eddie Hearn has found a way to keep details about his personal life out of tabloids and newspapers.

It is known that Eddie Hearn is married to his wife, the beautiful Chloe Hearn, and the pair have two daughters; Isabella and Sophia, together. However, particular details about the family and the couple, including how they met and when they exchanged marital vows, are not known. On the other hand, thanks to social media, we were able to find out that Mrs. Hearn is a co-owner of a beauty bar called Chloe’s Beauty Bar in Brentwood.

Dad – Barry Hearn

As alluded above, Eddie Hearn’s father, Barry Hearn, is the one who paved the way for his son to be at the forefront of English boxing promotions today.

Barry Hearn’s journey into sports promotion began in the early 1970s with snooker at the time when he bought a snooker hall in Romford, Greater London while working as a property investor. His purchase of the property happened to coincide with the BBC’s promotion of snooker and its televising on colored television. This made the sport a huge attraction to the public and further prompted him to invest more in the sport. By 1974, Hearn began promoting snooker events of amateur snooker players who went on to become professionals. He later started managing a number of high profile snooker players under his company Matchroom Sport in the 1980s.

In football, Barry Hearn served as the chairman of Leyton Orient football league club from 1995 to 2014. In darts, he is the chairman of one of darts’ two governing bodies, the Professional Darts Corporation. He has in the past also served as the chairman of the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association (WPBSA).
