Eddie Hearn has had a pop at Tyson Fury this week, saying any fan with a modicum of sense knows not to take anything Fury says seriously.
Hearn told Boxing Social that Fury’s recent contradictory comments about a fight with Anthony Joshua were a prime example of Fury being impossible to read.
“Unless you have not one brain cell in your head, you will make no sense of what Tyson Fury says.”
“I’ve lost track. I saw the interview where he said “I’ll never be happy with my career unless I fight Anthony Joshua” and I thought that was really good news, then literally two days later he said he would never fight Anthony Joshua. So I don’t know.”
Relations between Fury and Joshua’s team seem to be at an all time low after the collapse in negotiations for a potential fight earlier this autumn, with both sides laying the blame at each other’s door.
Despite initial discussions appearing to be positive, fans were ultimately left disappointed once again and questions as to whether the generational fight would ever occur surfaced on social media.
Fury will instead fight Derek Chisora, with the two veterans locking horns at Tottenham Hotspurs’ stadium on December 3rd. The event has come under criticism for what many fans believe to be a pay-per-view price not worthy of the action.
The Fury – Chisora bout has come under heavy criticism from fans, mainly due to the fact the champion comprehensively defeated ‘Del Boy’ on two occasions when the pair met in their earlier careers. Chisora is also coming off three losses in his last four fights.
As for Joshua, fans still await news of his return to the date, with spring 2023 looking most likely despite prior suggestions the former unified world champion would be out again before the end of the year
