Hearn expressed his gratitude towards Levy and the club for allowing the fight to go ahead.

Speaking in a press conference, he said: “I think it’s important that we thank Daniel Levy and all the team at Tottenham as well, because that was some effort they’ve made to put this event on at this incredible stadium as well.”

Paulo Fonseca slams Spurs failure

Former Spurs managerial target Paulo Fonseca has revealed that his failed appointment only occurred because the club were not particularly convinced about his style of play.

Speaking in an interview with The Telegraph, he said: “The agreement was done. We were planning the pre-season and Tottenham wanted an offensive coach,” Fonseca said. “It wasn’t announced but we planned pre-season players.

“But things changed when the new managing director [Fabio Paratici] arrived and we didn’t agree with some ideas and he preferred another coach.”
