Hearn Claims Wilder-Fury Will Fail
Even though Eddie Hearn would welcome a potential showdown between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, but doesn’t expect it to happen.
If Tyson Fury was indeed able to defeat Deontay Wilder on December 1st, an automatic rematch close for the current champion prevent a Fury Joshua fight. On-top of that Eddie Hearn doesn’t see Fury defeating Wilder in their fight on December 1st.
“I think it’s gonna be a terrible fight and I think he’s gonna stink the place out,” Hearn said in reference to Fury. “He may even win the first couple rounds, but I do think he’ll get knocked out.”
“Listen, it’s nothing against [Warren],” Hearn explained about his feud with Fury’s promoter. “I absolutely admire Tyson Fury for what he’s done. … This is a guy who had major problems and has completely turned his life around. And I have the utmost respect for him. He’s not match sharp, he’s not match fit and I think Wilder hits too hard. And I think he’ll cut him up at some point.
“Don’t get me wrong – Fury’s gonna frustrate him, grab him, hold him, spin him, push him away, do it again. And [Wilder] may be behind after a couple of rounds. But eventually, he’ll get a hold of him. And when he does, I think he’ll win the fight.”
