Tottenham Hotspur have finished their two test events and now are ready to broadcast their ‘state of the art’ to the rest of the Premier League when they host Crystal Palace on Wednesday night in their first professional match at their new home.
Their previous home ground was Wembley which has not only been used for football, but boxing too when Anthony Joshua defeated Wladimir Klitschko at the national stadium.
We all know that Spurs plan on using their new stadium to host NFL games in the future, but could boxing be on the cards too?
Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn believes that he would be able to take the heavyweight world champion to the new Tottenham stadium and make it a sell-out.
Furthermore, Eddie Hearns father, Barry, staged his first boxing fight the old White Hart Lane in 1987 where Frank Bruno emerged victorious over Joe Bugner.
“I’d love to emulate the old man and put on a fight at the new Spurs ground,” Hearn said (Standard Sport)
“The big stadium shows are quite rare but you’re always looking out for places. And Joshua had outgrown the indoor arenas here.
“Tottenham’s new stadium looks magnificent. Its ultra-modern and state-of-the art.
“I don’t know what Spurs’ plans are but it could be another option among several in London.
“With no roof you’d be limited to dates between April and September. But it looks perfect.
“It’s got to be on the radar for future big boxing events.”
