Eddie Hearn fires back at Tyson Fury over Anthony Joshua’s bold claim

The entire fighting world is eagerly awaiting the showdown as the orthodox fighter takes on the agile southpaw. This is a testing ground for Usyk who earlier last year defied all odds and defeated Joshua, beating the Brit to a decision to take all the titles. However, taking on Fury certainly won’t be a walk in the park for the former cruiserweight champion who is jumping up a weight class.

With both fighters confident in their abilities and fans expecting a war during the highly anticipated fight, Joshua’s promoter had to engage in a brutal fight with Fury. According to Eurosports, Hearn said:

“You may call me misguided, but in my mind AJ beats Tyson Fury for the undisputed championship and that would be a really nice way to walk off into the sunset.”

Despite the setbacks, Hearn still believes in Joshua and is confident the British heavyweight can topple ‘The Gypsy King’. That said, the upcoming fight is important for all three fighters: Fury, Usyk and Joshua.
