Last Saturday was a big night for Claressa Shields as she became undisputed in two weight divisions simultaneously. The celebration did not last long as fans and promoters are already moving into the conversation in what’s next for Shields.
There are those that want to see a fight with the winner of McCaskill – Brækhus or a fight against Katie Taylor but one name keeps getting mentioned, Savannah Marshall.
Marshall is the only fighter ever to hold a victory over Shields and that happened when they fought as amateurs. Marshall has gone 9-0, 7 KO’s since turning pro and the demand is there for a rematch with Shields. It’s a fight that Eddie Hearn thinks Marshall will not just win but by stoppage and it should be a two-fight deal.
Hearn’s comments on the potential fight grabbed Shields’s attention who in turn called Hearn a clown, and the two interacted in a series of Tweets.
1. CS: Lol Eddie Hearn you just became a clown in my eyes. Not only would she not be able to beat me but for you to say “Stops me” you are biggest dozer of them all. Get the money right, til then I don’t need you or Marshall.
PIERS MORGAN and Eddie Hearn were involved in a Twitter spat after Anthony Joshua's promoter called for more 'hope and positivity' in coverage of coronavirus. Good Morning Britain host Piers has. On Thursday, Eddie Hearn more or less begged Fury and his team to be more positive as the promoter scrambles to put the massive fight together. “We’re in a good place,” Hearn was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. “I saw John Fury’s comments. It’s almost like they don’t really want the fight. We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us.
The latest tweets from @NoContextHearn. A parody no-context Twitter account themed around Eddie Hearn has become a viral sensation and boasts over 40,000 followers in less than 11 days since it launched.
CS: You get the picture, Get the money right and stop trying to build Marshall off my accomplishments. Be a promoter and promote her, off her own name. Loser.
EH: She’s doing fine – has two big networks behind her and fights again on April 10. Hopefully we can get it made.
2. CS: I hate being disrespected by a silver spoon fed ass person. Eddie Hearn has never laced up a pair of gloves nor been in a fight to even say that a 2X UNDISPUTED CHAMPION, 3X DIVISION WORLD CHAMPION, 2X OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST would get stopped. Clown.
EH: Now you are just using my name to build your profile.
CS: Never have I ever. After you get the money right and I whoop Marshall ass, I’m gonna throw you a pair of gloves and you gotta go a round with me for talking all this shit. 3 minutes Shields Vs Hearn.
EH: That would be your biggest PPV.
CS: That would be your biggest ass whoopin too.
EH: My honest opinion is that Marshall beats you but you definitely beat me. I could never fight but I can do great business so fingers crossed.
CS: Eddie your opinion is yours, I can’t take that away from you. Get the offer right big guy. Now I have some training to do.
EH: Good luck – you are welcome in Dallas this week with your team to watch McCaskill Braekhus 2 and maybe we could all try and sit down and get a deal done.
3. CS: I like to start my mornings positive. If Eddie Hearn has anything to say to me he should be saying congrats! None of his fighters can do what I’ve already done in 11 fights.
EH: You seem to be starting this one positively. I’m a big fan of yours Claressa.I just think Savannah Marshall beats you.
talkSPORT.com reporter: “Hi, No Context Hearn, would you be able to have a chat with me about how successful your Twitter account has been?”
No Context Hearn: “Oh, go on then!”
The parody account of charismatic boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has taken Twitter by storm since September and has already amassed more than 320,000 followers.
If you haven’t heard of No Context Hearn then you must be living in a cave!
But in a nut shell, No Context Hearn collects some of the best/most random clips from interviews with Hearn and allows anyone to make a tweet to caption it.
Below is the account’s most famous ‘Oh, go on then!’ clip.

Hearn himself gave context to some of the clips with talkSPORT shortly after No Context Hearn made it big.
An ‘Out of Context’ or ‘No Context’ account is nothing new on social media but the impact No Context Hearn has had is unrivalled.
It’s even got to the stage where people are re-enacting the ‘Oh, go on then!’ clip or ‘My darlin’, you with the headband, you are different gravy’ out in the real world.
If you follow No Context Hearn or at least follow enough people who follow it, you’ll know one’s feed on Twitter is filled with numerous hilarious clips of Hearn with some hilarious captions.
Some of the captions are admittedly a little close to the bone, but there’s an understanding among everyone that no one’s being serious.
So who is the genius behind the hilarious parody account? talkSPORT.com spoke exclusively to its creator.

He would like to maintain some secrecy while running the account, but tells us his name is Andy and he works for the NHS.
The account was a spur of the moment thing after seeing other successful ‘No Context’ accounts but Andy has been surprised by the success of his.
“I definitely didn’t expect the account to go viral,” he said. “The account is just three months old and rapidly closing in on a quarter of a billion impressions.” Tor brave.

We all have our favourite No Context Hearn clip but which one is Andy’s favourite?
He added: “It would either be ‘Oh, go on then!’ or ‘My darlin’, you with the headband, you are different gravy’ due to them going so viral.
“It was great to see Brighton Hove Albion and Newcastle/Allan Saint-Maximin using them last week.”

Such has been the success of No Context Hearn, fans can now buy official merchandise including mugs and pint glasses with some memorable catch phrases from the account.
Andy has never met Hearn personally himself, but revealed the pair have been in communication about the sales of products to do with the account.
They came to an agreement that a percentage of sales will go to a charity of Hearn’s choice.
Andy added: “I had several companies approach me about selling merchandise. The Terrace, a retro sport and kit inspired culture store, managed to convince me to go for it.
“Thankfully Eddie was okay with us giving it a go and we agreed to donate a percentage of sales to a charity of his choosing.

He said: “I wouldn’t say I have a specific aim for the account. I’m enjoying providing people a rare opportunity to have a positive, fun time on Twitter.”
