Tyson Fury’s copromoter has put Eddie Hearn under fire for not having “nothing to say”Anthony Joshua: What’s in Store
Joshua, 31, has signed to Matchroom Sport. Hearn promoted Joshua since 2013, his professional debut.
They are currently in negotiations to a rematch. Usyk, 34 years old, stunned the British fighter by outclassing him at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September. He claimed his WBA and IBF heavyweight titles.
According to some reports, Joshua, 31, may have been asked to resign from the fight in order for Ukrainian Usyk, who will be able to get a lucrative title-unification bout with Fury. The epic trilogy fight between Tyson Fury and ‘The Gypsy King,’ in October saw ‘The Gypsy King’ retain his WBO & Ring Magazine belts.
Bob Arum (fury’s co-promoter) was asked if Hearn, 42 would speak to him about the proposal. He instead chose to slate him with an incoherent response.
“F*** Eddie Hearn, he’s got nothing to say about it,”Arum, 89, was quoted saying: Silver Screen Beats.
“All he does is spin his mouth. Joshua will make the decision for Joshua.”

Fury, 33 years old, is expected to face Dillian Whyte, the mandatory challenger in an all-British fight despite ‘The Body Snatcher” having to withdraw from his scheduled fight against Otto Wallin because of a shoulder injury.
The 33-year-old Whyte has been vocal about his desire for the WBC crown. He taunted Fury on social media and was always vocal about it. Now, he looks set to finally get his wish in 2022.
Fury was asked about the possibility of an all British clash with Whyte during the build up to his fight with Wilder. Fury seemed keen to discuss the idea provided his rival played fair financially.
“Let’s hope he doesn’t start asking for stupid money that don’t exist, because if he asks for stupid money, then he don’t want the fight,” said Fury.
“So you heard it here, we’ll do Wilder on October 9, we’ll do Dillian Whyte sometime in December, that’s definitely gonna happen, I’m gonna splatter him for sure.”
The winners of the proposed bouts between Usyk and Joshua, and Fury and Whyte, will inevitably meet in the latter half of 2022.
