Eddie Hearn insists that he is now determined to get Anthony Joshua in the ring with Tyson Fury, and admits that this is the fight that his esteemed property then wants to enter.
Joshua has been associated with a Fury collision for quite some time, although he had always withheld the prospect because of the time of the Gypsy King away from the ring.
Now Fury is back and better than ever before, after he had blown away Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas to be crowned the world’s heavyweight champion again.

Joshua, the IBF, WBA, and WBO belt holder, faces Kubrat Pulev in June, but is ready to bypass that to make everyone fight and agree to a full British confrontation with Fury.
“I have already spoken to AJ and he wants to go into this fight next,” Hearn said talk sport in the aftermath of the victory of Fury.
Fury showed his true caliber by realizing the amazing performance in the MGM Grand
“We must let this fight take place. We will never have the chance for two Britons to fight for an undisputedly tough world championship.
“I promise we will do everything we can to fight this fight. It must happen. “
Wilder now has a 30-day window to use a rematch option in the bilateral agreement with Fury, who would set up a blockbuster trilogy collision in the summer.
Hearn acknowledges that Wilder will most likely record the rematch, given his current lack of high-caliber options after the humiliation.
“I don’t think anyone wants to see a third fight because it was so persuasive, but we’ll see if he practices that clause,” Hearn added.

“I probably expect Wilder to do that – I don’t see where else he should go.
“But our obligation [IBF] challenger, Kubrat Pulev, is also promoted by Bob Arum, just like Tyson Fury, so there is a very easy maneuver there if Wilder does not accept the rematch to go straight into this undisputed fight in the summer. We must insist on that in the first instance. “
Fury’s promoter Arum gave his own opinion about the situation and added: ‘The question is addressed to Deontay Wilder.
“He can now abandon a third and get himself together and do it again next year, in which case Tyson Fury engages himself with other opponents. If he wants to continue, that’s what the contract says and we’ll honor that. ”
