The managing director of Matchroom Boxing, the renown Eddie Hearn has been very vocal this week in his support of the former unified heavyweight kingpin, Tyson Fury (25-0). Hearn attempted to reach a deal for a 2018 mega clash between Fury and Joshua and has offered his support as the wheels are set to be put into motion over Fury’s return following statements being made by the BBBoC’s general secretary, Robert Smith.
You talk about AJ versus [Deontay] Wilder but it’s nowhere as big as AJ against Fury. That is a fight that can be built into something huge. Two completely different characters, two completely different styles, two undefeated heavyweights, two unified champions. An incredible match up,” Hearn told Sky Sports.
