He said, “That’s a lot of money okay. Well, I mean no I started back it’s my own it was my own big mouth that got me into it. Started with his jewelry. I joked it was 10 grand. It’s probably I don’t know whatever hundreds. Then I said well what about a million thinking hoping he’d say oh! Steady on and he went all right then I went oh! s*** t.”

Furthermore, Hearn added that the 25-year-old insisted on it. He said, “Jake’s right does add a little bit of pizzazz and a little bit of meaning but I want her to win with or without the bet but we’ll keep to our words and I’ll take the money over to jewelry but I truly believe Katie will win on Saturday night and he feels the same about Amanda.”

He proposed putting on all the jewelry as the price of the deal. Hearn hit him back and asked for something big. Eventually, the bet closed with the shaking of hands-on million dollars, but initially, Hearn looked reluctant before going for it. Which he mentioned later while talking to ‘DAZN Boxing’.
