The chairman of Matchroom Sport Eddie Hearn did not mince his words when he witnessed the darts on social media. He remarked, “The one thing you have to do when you see a relationship like that, a professional relationship sliding away, you’ve got to get together, and you’ve got to try and mend that.” However, the 1992 Olympics winner Oscar De La Hoya did not appreciate the fact that Eddie was interfering and intimidated him on Twitter.
