“If that fight doesn’t happen this summer, it’s got to happen sooner or later. But Top Rank has to give me two fights this year. I will fight two times on [Top Rank network partner] ESPN. I don’t care who it is. If it’s not Joshua, we’re looking to fight in April or early May, and the end of the year. If it is Joshua, then June and the end of the year. Bang, bang. So, 2021 is looking bright.”

Fury turned some more heads during a recent interview with iFL TV. “The Gypsy King” said he’s open to fighting Deontay Wilder a third time due to some issues behind the scenes with the Joshua fight.

Hearn responded to Fury’s comments and appears to be confused (h/t Michael Benson).

“Although they’re going to put pen to paper, the interview was a bit disappointing. Don’t know whether he was in a bad mood or pulling everyone’s plonker. What I do know is everyone’s put a lot of work into this and he is on board.”
