Richardson Hitchins Gives Eddie Hearn The Highest Praise: “Ever Since I Got With Eddie, My Life Changed”

Boxing Scene

Richardson Hitchins couldn’t understand why his boxing career wasn’t flourishing. He was a former amateur standout, a 2016 Olympian, and one of the most skilled young fighters around. He also had the public backing of Floyd Mayweather and Mayweather Promotions.

Yet, for whatever reason, Hitchins (17-0, 7 KOs) spent more time sitting and watching as opposed to actually fighting. Once he neared the end of his deal, he was allowed to walk prematurely. That sign of kindness from Mayweather Promotions opened up the door for Hitchins to take his talents elsewhere.

After taking a long and strong look at what was around him, Hitchins decided that it would be in his best interest to sign on with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing.

Putting his career in the British promoter’s hands, at least so far, has been a sagacious move. In less than 12 months, Hitchins has managed to jump into the ring on three separate occasions. Also, most recently, he headlined his own show against well-known contender, Jose Zepeda.

Once that victory was in the bag, things have continued to go in the right direction. Hitchins is set to make his 2024 debut on April 6th in a headliner against Gustavo Daniel Lemos, an undefeated contender.

Due to his work ethic and propensity for staying in the gym, Hitchins doesn’t always take the time to sit back and reflect on how far he has come. However, he caught up with BoxingScene.com to do just that. With his bank account looking healthier than ever and his status in the boxing world being solidified, Hitchins admits that pairing up with Hearn has been a blessing.  

“Ever since I got with Eddie, my life changed. I’m not gonna lie. My life changed. My boxing career got a whole lot of structure. Everything blossomed for me. I feel like if I was with them earlier in my career, I would’ve been had a world championship but everything happens for a reason.”
