Social media has been quite a buzz this week once fans realized Euan Walker from Masterchef bore a striking resemblance to a certain Mr. Eddie Hearn.
The 29-year-old from Edzell, made it through to the quarter-finals on Friday, impressing judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace with his obvious skills.
But it the eagled-eyed boxing community on Twitter who gobbled up the fact that Euan was a ringer for the Matchroom Boxing promoter.
Hearn, forever in the news as the UK’s most vocal pugilism salesman, is currently overseeing events in Frisco, Texas ahead of Mikey Garcia vs Jessie Vargas.
The comments, though, came thick and fast throughout the early stages of MasterChef competition:
“@EddieHearn on the old #MasterChef cooking an English breakfast wiv jellied eels.”
“I didn’t realize Eddie Hearn was competing on this year’s MasterChef or is it his better looking younger brother without the Bobby Charlatan sweep?”
“@EddieHearn loving you on master chef mate!”
“@EddieHearn chilling out on Masterchef when he should be making the Joshua-Fury fight.”
“Great cooking skills on Masterchef last night @EddieHearn.”
“If Eddie Hearn and Danny Dyer had a child Baby #masterchef.”
Walker has quickly placed himself as one of the favorites to win this year’s show. The further the Scot goes, the longer the comparisons will continue.
