EDDIE HEARN thrilled his Fight Camp crew with a spot of karaoke – belting out a brilliant rendition of Ain't No Sunshine ahead Dillian Whyte's clash with Alexander Povetkin.
The Matchroom promoter, 41, is gearing up for his final Fight Camp with a star-studded fight.
And Hearn provided the entertainment on the eve of the showdown by singing 1971 Bill Withers hit Ain't No Sunshine superbly.
Hearn revealed his song choice was a reflection on the enforced coronavirus lockdown.
Ironically, the promoter has done well during lockdown – turning his former home in Brentwood into Fight Camp HQ, for four weeks of incredible events.
Ahead of his crooning session, Hearn revealed: "I'm going to sing a song that represents the pain and suffering we suffered under lockdown without boxing, Ain't No Sunshine."
Despite the raging success of Fight Camp, Hearn refused to extend its run beyond this weekend.
He did, however, hint at a return next year.
But for now, it will be all eyes on Whyte and Povetkin as they prepare to headline the final Saturday event.
And Hearn confirmed the winner of that fight WILL become the official WBC heavyweight challenger.
That means Whyte or Povetkin will face the winner of Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder III.
Ahead of their clash, Povetkin told "scared" rival Dillian Whyte to stop hiding in his caravan.
Brixton ace Whyte has resorted to living in a couple of motorhomes at Brentwood Holiday Inn, while his Russian opponent stays in a regular room.
Whyte, 32, and Hearn insisted it is to stop the pair scrapping on the M25 before Saturday's first bell.
But the heavyweights shared a cordial stage for Wednesday's press conference and Povetkin, 40, even invited his rival to share a buffet lunch with him before he flies home.
