Former heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury has singled out boxing promoter Eddie Hearn for some abuse as he closes in on an announcement for a fight with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

Fury had met with Hearn before his comeback earlier this year to discuss the possibility of working together as fighter and promoter.

Following their meetings, Fury even reached out to Anthony Joshua personally in a bid to cut through everything and make a super fight down the line.

According to Hearn, the reason an agreement could not be reached was that in his opinion Fury wanted too easy a level of opposition for his first four fights back after a near 1000 day hiatus from the sport.

Fury ultimately signed with Hearn’s rival Frank Warrren and now boxes on BT Sport in the UK, on Showtime in the US.

Joshua fights on rival networks Sky Sports in the UK and DAZN in the US.

A fight between the two next year could be possible but would need to overcome a lot of obstacles such as rival networks and promoters.

Fury has taken to Instagram to personally goad Hearn as he gleamed about the Deontay Wilder fight happening soon:
