Not much has happened with Dana White’s long talked about plans for Zuffa Boxing just yet, but he is seemingly teasing it again on social media. The UFC President took to twitter to post a photo with boxing promoter Eddie Hearn, with the caption “Uh Oh!!!!!!!!”

The pair was at the UFC Performance Institue, and the English promoter and Matchroom Sport head also posted a similar photo on his Twitter account:

White, who recently said that he’s making all of his moves in boxing after this summer, has also been rumored to be interested in one of Hearn’s fighters in Anthony Joshua in the past. That never pushed through, but White was among those people who stated that Joshua is yet to be a legitimate star in the US.

The meeting of course, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s about the heavyweight champion in Joshua. Hell, this might not even be about Zuffa Boxing or any business meeting at all, as the UFC Performance Institute regularly hosts athletes from various sports.

Hearn is currently is Las Vegas to promote Daniel Jacobs in his bout against Canelo Alvarez.

Apart from Joshua and Jacobs, Hearn also promotes several other boxing stars and champions such as Amir Khan, Kell Brook, Oleksandr Usyk, Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, Maurice Hooker, and Callum Smith among others.
