He’s now as popular, big, and perhaps as bombastic as the boxers he promotes. Eddie Hearn is also an extremely busy man. Fresh from thrusting his back garden into the eyes of the watching world to make it the Essex MSG, the promoter has returned with his widely-popular pod ‘No Passion, No Point’ for Season Three

"I can't believe they've got me back again for season three..." he states at the start of this newest episode, but the BBC wouldn't say no to more glorious content. Reaching out to some of the biggest names in sport, entertainment, and business, Hearn desires to speak to people and celebrities who have the same graft and work ethic as he remains proud of.

In 2019, Eddie rounded up the likes of Wayne Rooney, Noel Gallagher, Stacey Dooley and, of course, his old muckas Anthony Joshua and Katie Taylor, and for his sophomore season Hearn kicked off brilliantly with Liverpool star Virgil van Djik, (VVD positing a tweet from the infamous ‘No Context Hearn’ account in the wake of the Merseyside outfit’s Premier League crowning) and ‘the fastest British woman in history’, Olympian Dina Asher-Smith. He then went on to feature such personalities as Maya Jama and Anthony Middleton. That’s some serious star power. He’s like a Dagenham Joe Rogan.

Now he has started the series with Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, with several other massive names in the pipeline, but we will keep them a surprise for now.

“If you’re listening to this series,” Hearn announced to the listener in typical passionate fashion at Season Two in the midst of the pandemic, “I hope these people do inspire you because these are the ones that are ready to dig deep, these are the ones that are ready to go the extra mile, these are the ones that we should all be learning from.

“I think if you want to spread positivity, then we should be in this environment where we’re listening to people who do spread positivity. We don’t want any negative vibes on this podcast. We’re going to be alright.”

We needed this uplifting pod in 2020 and we are even more delighted to see it return. Personal, poignant, and, of course, punchy, hear Hearn roar. Back again, every Wednesday through BBC Sounds.
