Following this past weekend’s Anthony Joshua knockout win over Alexander Povetkin promoter of Joshua, Eddie Hearn played down talks of a possible fight against Tyson Fury in the future.
Both he and Joshua have made clear that they want a fight with Deontay Wilder next in April back at Wembley stadium.
Wilder must first come through Tyson Fury however on December 1st, no mean feat in itself.
This past weekend Eddie Hearn spoke candidly and made no bones about his opinion of Fury’s style. One that he considers boring.
Fury has now hit back at him this morning:
There is a certain daddy’s boy in boxing. Who offered me millions of pounds to sign a contract with him! Because he didn’t get GK he now says I’m the worst fighter he as ever seen! Bitter little spoiled punk, #sausage pic.twitter.com/nc1XSNkl1G

Negotiations are thought to be ongoing for the Joshua vs Wilder fight behind the scenes.
The Fury fight with Wilder first up is expected to take place on December 1st with a venue in the United States expected to be confirmed later this week at some point.
