Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has assured that the world heavyweight boxing champion will clash with his compatriot Tyson Fury – the Gypsy King, in future.
Hearn says that Joshua who reclaimed his belts with a rematch win over Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia will still fight Fury in future whether or not the Briton won his rematch with Wilder.
“[Sparring Fury is] going to be interesting with AJ’s schedule. How are you going to do that?,” Hearn told iFL TV.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up flying out there and doing some rounds.
“They’ll definitely fight, win or lose. If Fury loses against Wilder, I promise you AJ and Fury will fight at some stage in the future.
“I can’t say the same about Wilder.”
The Gypsy King’s promoter, Frank Warren has however shrugged off a sparring session offer from Joshua ahead of his boxer’s rematch with Deontay Wilder.
“It’s just stupid, isn’t it? That’s not happening. The better idea is for Anthony Joshua to say let’s fight and let the fans see it. Warren told iFL TV.
“Why do you want to go and do it in a gym? Could you imagine them two sparring in the gym? Why would you do that? Save it for the fight.
“I don’t see the sense of it behind closed doors. Do it in a ring, get paid for it. It would be the biggest fight ever. It’s nonsense, stupid, ridiculous. It’s the easiest fight in the world to make.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
