- His promoter Eddie Hearn insists that they put pressure on the victor to fight
Anthony Joshua will increase the pressure on the winner of the Tyson Fury rematch with Deontay Wilder.
AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn insists that they will push to start a huge collision in 2020, whether against the American or the ‘Gypsy King’.
He told Sky Sports: “Everyone has opinions, but it is impossible to say. My opinion is that Joshua is the best, but until he beats the winner, the world will not be satisfied.

Wilder and Fury have their long-awaited rematch this Saturday in Las Vegas
“We have to put pressure on the winner to finally compete in 2020.
“We will have a conversation and say,” Are you doing a third fight? If so, can you do it quickly? “”
Much will depend on the nature of the victory on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
There may be a third collision between Wilder and Fury to settle their score once and for all.
If that’s the case, the fight with Joshua would take a back seat and fans might have to wait even longer to see the former Olympic champion try to unite the heavyweight division.
AJ wants to fight against Wilder of Fury before the end of 2020, but there can be a trilogy fight
Negotiations are never easy, but Hearn believes there is a better chance of reaching an agreement with the Fury team.
“It’s easier on the Fury side because it’s just a conversation with [his US-based promoter] Bob Arum and [his management] MTK, “Hearn added.
“Wilder may not even want to know.”
AJ found relief last year in Saudi Arabia with a unanimous decision to reclaim his titles and take revenge on Andy Ruiz.
There is a huge call to fight Fury of Wilder and the 30-year-old will undoubtedly watch with great interest on Saturday.
