Fury’s Team Blasts Offer From Hearn
The rivalry between Frank Warren and Eddie Hearn has made a new turn this week, as Warren blasted an offer made to Tyson Fury.
Warren, who promotes the former unified heavyweight champion of the world, stated in an interview with the Daily Mail that an offer made for Fury to fight current unified champion Anthony Joshua in London on April 13th, was below Fury’s worth.
“Eddie’s offer is nowhere near what Tyson is worth. It is derisory offers like that which are keeping his man at home twiddling his thumbs after turning down $80 million for two fights against Wilder. That is money he will never get back,” Warren told Daily Mail.
“Because of this Joshua’s bubble has burst with the public a bit. There will be no more just sticking his face on a poster and selling out 80,000 tickets. Yes, he’s going from Park Lane to Brick Lane.”
And with news of Fury nearing a deal to face Deontay Wilder this spring in a rematch, Warren is not concerned with the fight happening at Barclays Center, he just wants to ensure an even playing field for his fighter.
“All we want is a fair fight. So no American judges and no British judges,” Warren said.
