The Matchroom Boxing promoter revealed that he was looking into a new boxing-related venture, however, sharing plans to create a video game that would rival EA’s classic Fight Night series.

EA Sports’ Fight Night series has produced many popular boxing games for fans to enjoy.

Many fans still consider the Fight Night series to be among the best boxing games of all time despite the most recent, Fight Night Champion, being released in 2011.

During his Instagram Live on April 11, Eddie Hearn revealed that he approached EA SPORTS about releasing a sequel for the popular series and claimed that they had shown little interest in returning to boxing.

“Fight Night 3 I’ve answered those questions about EA SPORTS, do you know what EA SPORTS don’t really seem interested in boxing and Fight Night,” he revealed.

Hearn shared that he was going to take it upon himself and explained to fans that he was considering setting up his own game to rival Fight Night.

“Should I just do one myself? I have got a few other interesting projects coming around,” Hearn asked.

Prince Khalid of Saudi Arabia, who is an avid boxing fan, was in Hearn’s chat at the time and seemingly also showed interest in making the game a reality.

“We’ll start our own rival game to the EA SPORTS Fight Night, me and the one and only big K, Prince Khalid,” Hearn explained, telling the Prince to message him, “I’m going to release a new boxing game, f*ck it.”

Despite apparently showing little interest in a new boxing title, EA has not completely pulled out of fighting games as they are due to release the fourth edition of the UFC game series in 2020, seemingly shifting their focus to MMA in recent years.

It’s no secret that TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has a dedicated fanbase, but some supporters began accusing another TikToker of copying her hairstyle — and the Queen was not happy about these allegations.

Charli D’Amelio is the most-followed content creator on TikTok, having reached a whopping 90 million followers since rising to the top of the platform in March.

Boasting her own drink at Dunkin’ Donuts, her own makeup collection with Morphe and her own line of Hollister hoodies, the youngest D’Amelio sister has amassed quite the empire in a short time — as well as a seriously intense fanbase.

While hopping on popular trends is quite the norm these days, some viewers have accused innocent TikTokers of copying Charli, even alleging that older sister Dixie had “copied” her nose surgery.

This behavior hasn’t stopped, it seems, as other fans claimed that TikToker Madi Monroe had copied Charli’s hairstyle after dying her blonde hair with streaks of rose gold (or pink, depending on how you look at it).

Charli dyed her own black hair a shade of purple underneath, and while it could be true that other influencers have taken inspiration from her new ‘do, the TikTok Queen wasn’t too pleased with those piling on Monroe for her fashion choices.

In fact, Charli claimed that other names like Avani Gregg and Hayley had kickstarted the trend by dying their hair before she’d even made the decision to go purple, as told in a pointed response to the online outrage.

Charli D'Amelio decries users accusing Madi Monroe of copying her hairstyle.

“Hayley and Avani dyed their hair like this before me,” she explained in a TikTok comment. “I did not start this trend. Also, who cares? Madi looks amazing as per usual and she is rocking the pink hair.”

Madi followed up Charli’s comment with a statement of her own, showing tons of love to the purple-haired TikTok guru.

“Why is this even tea?” she said of the issue. “Hell yeah, Char rocks this hairstyle. That comment wasn’t supposed to be rude but NGL I’D LOVE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE CHARLI SHE’S THE BADDEST!”

It looks like there’s no bad blood between these two influencers, who have had enough of the made-up drama surrounding their hairstyle choices.
