“I tell Tony Bellew that’s fight not happening. I’m not interested in that fight,” said Hearn at first in an interview with IFL.TV.
But he then quickly changed his tone when talking about the possible payout. Still, Hearn wants to focus more on Bellew’s boxing career.
“We can never rule anything out, but Tony Bellew is still in a stage of trying to create a legacy through his own boxing career. He’s won a cruiserweight world title. He could win a heavyweight world title. He’s beaten David Haye. Those kinda fights are fights you take,” explained Hearn.
