Eddie Hearn shouts expletive after mistaking live filming for rehearsal
"Apologies... Yeah, we are live."
Eddie Hearn found himself in an embarrassing situation live on TV on Friday, as he mistook the live broadcast of a weigh-in at Fight Camp for a rehearsal and to shouted "Cha'mone, motherfuckers" as a joke.
If the silence that followed didn't tell him what he'd just done, the presenter clarifying, "yeah, we are live" confirmed it.
To be fair, Hearn owned what must have been quite a mortifying experience by laughing it off. This sort of faux pas suits his reputation as a class clown anyway, so he's not exactly let anyone down with this gaffe. Bar maybe the TV director who must have facepalmed their keyboard.
