The Eddie Hearn headbutt has proved a popular hit in the boxing Twittersphere today, perhaps indicative of how quiet boxing is at the moment.
The video, for those who have not seen it yet, shows promoter Eddie Hearn and boxer Tony Bellew coming together in an accidental clash of heads, with Hearn coming the worst off:

Already in its first hour on a Sunday, its managed to fetch over 500 “likes” on the Twitter platform.
Perhaps also a sign of the hilarity of it and the promoter’s popularity with the wider boxing fan base.
Here’s some of the reaction so far from boxing fans (including the promoter’s reaction):
Didn’t even feel that at the time ??
