Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury talks

Eddie Hearn has revealed he’s held talks with Anthony Joshua over a potential unification fight with WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. “I’ve already spoken to AJ and he wants to go into this fight next,” the Matchroom Boxing chief told talkSPORT.

“I promise you we will do everything we can to make this fight. It has to happen.”

When pressed on Fury’s performance, Hearn added: “I heard out of his camp he was going to be aggressive and go for it and I thought it was absolute madness and it ended up being genius from him and his team,” he said.

“Just a wonderful performance. What a time for British boxing – an incredible night.

Deontay Wilder’s coach Jay Deas has partially attributed the American’s defeat to Fury to fatigue, which he believes was caused by the “heavy” costume he wore for his ring walk.

“His legs didn’t look great to me early on. I didn’t think his legs look like they normally look,” Deas told Boxing Social. “I know he came to the ring in the outfit, which was very heavy.

“I don’t know if that had anything to do with it. Tyson’s a lot of weight to be putting on you as well.

“I don’t know all the answers yet but once I see the film, I’ll know more.”
