And Hearn has now told Fury to ‘hurry up’ and beat Wilder once again so that he can set up a showdown with Joshua.

Hearn told the Sun: ‘People don’t want the third fight. They’ve had 19 rounds now, Wilder’s probably won three of them and in the last fight he got battered.

‘But I understand the contractual position. He does have a right to a rematch clause.

‘I’d just say “Hurry up, please” and do it quickly. We just hope they get on with it and get it out of the way.’
