International Track 200

Matchroom ran a Covid-secure “fight camp” in the garden of its Essex mansion headquarters in August, where boxers including Katie Taylor took part in crowd-free, pay-per-view bouts. Set up in 1982 by chairman Barry Hearn, 72, to promote snooker, it now stages, promotes and televises events across 11 sports; Barry’s son, Eddie, 41, is group managing director. Staging Anthony Joshua’s heavyweight world title fight with Andy Ruiz in Saudi Arabia boosted overseas sales to £99.7 million in 2019.
