Tyson Fury Rips Eddie Hearn For Backing Canelo Over Billy Joe Saunders

WBC and The Ring Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury fired back at Eddie Hearn for what he believes to be favoritism.

Canelo Alvarez is set to put his WBA, WBC, and The Ring Super-Middleweight Titles on the line against Billy Joe Saunders on May 8. Saunders’ WBO Title will also be at stake. The title fight is being promoted by Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing.

Hearn was aware that Fury felt he wasn’t backing Britain’s top boxers for his own fights. The Matchroom head honcho said Fury was talking “absolute bollocks.”

Fury hit back at Hearn with the following response in an Instagram video (h/t Boxing News 24).

“This is a message for Eddie ‘The [expletive] Hearn, talking about me in the hotel in Vegas, wearing the Versace shirts. Yes, I’m absolutely guilty, Eddie. I’m over here in my 6,000 square foot hotel room, wearing Versace every single day. If you keep {expletive] Canelo off, you might be able to get a couple of these shirts as well, mate.

“If you want, I can borrow you a couple, don’t worry about it. I’ll give you a little bit of swag, too. Keep [expletive] Canelo off, and when my boy Billy Joe Saunders gives him an absolute boxing lesson and knocks him out, you’re going to have egg on your face, boy.”

Saunders has said he’s a bit disappointed in Hearn over looking for potential locations for Canelo vs. IBF Super-Middleweight titleholder Caleb Plant.
