Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn signs first book to Hodder

Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn's first book will be released by Hodder & Stoughton, revealing his way of working and the lessons of life and business he has learned along the way.

Huw Armstrong, senior commissioning editor, acquired world rights in print, serial, digital and audio from Matchroom Boxing. Relentless: 12 Rounds to Success will be released on 29th October.

Hearn is one of the most recognisable faces in British boxing. His company, Matchroom Boxing, has represented some of the biggest names in sports, including the likes of Anthony Joshua, Katie Taylor, Tony Bellew and Carl Froch.

The book's synopsis explains: “In Relentless, Eddie will reveal his business mindset. Structured in 12 rounds and the key skills that Eddie values the most, this book looks at business, life, and the drive to succeed. From his beginnings selling double glazing to selling out Wembley and negotiating a billion-dollar streaming deal, Eddie draws the valuable lessons that he has learnt along the way to inspire readers to apply them to their own life.”

Hearn said: “I’m very proud to release my first book, Relentless, with Hodder & Stoughton this October. Lockdown has given me the opportunity to focus on some projects that I wouldn’t normally have time for, it also gave me a chance to reflect on my career and experiences so far. This book reveals my strategy for success and how a positive mindset and a relentless worth ethic can help you achieve your goals. I feel in the current climate, with the challenges that undoubtedly lie ahead, the contents are more relevant than ever.”

Armstrong added: “Eddie’s career has been remarkable. His rise as one of the most prominent and influential voices in the sport is unparalleled. This book will offer readers a side to him they don’t often see – the grit, determination and relentless pursuit for success. I can’t wait for this book to be out there; it’s not going to disappoint.”
