According to what Hearn told Seconds Out, as the event concluded, Miller approached Hearn. The British promoter then went on to narrate the entire exchange between them. “He came up to me and he said, ‘Oh, you’re scared now,'” Hearn recounted, setting the stage for an intense dialogue.

Hearn, known for his sharp wit, quickly dismissed Miller’s provocation. “I ain’t f***ing scared of you. I know what you did,” he retorted. This response reflects Hearn’s awareness of Miller’s controversial past, including failed drug tests that have marred his boxing career. The conversation escalated as Miller pressed on, questioning Hearn’s loyalty. “Why didn’t you back me like you backed Conor Benn?” Hearn recalled.

Unfazed by the threat, Hearn delivered a final, dismissive blow. “And I said, ‘Go f**k yourself,'” he revealed.
