Tyson Fury’s record is ‘laughable’ in comparison to Anthony Joshua, says promoter Eddie Hearn | Boxing News

first_imgHearn said: “AJ has consistently proved that he will fight all-comers – mandatory challengers, unified champions, future hall of famers.“Anybody, and now he’s doing it again, and that’s why when you talk about Usyk, he will fight Usyk no problems at all, but he wants to fight Tyson Fury.“He wants to prove he’s the best heavyweight in the world and undisputed or not, we will do everything we can to make sure it is. Not one person can have any doubt after that fight, who the baddest man on the planet is.” Joshua believes victory over the ‘dangerous’ Pulev could set up huge fights “Fighting for the WBC would be an honour. It’s a prestigious belt, it’s one that I’m keen on getting my hands on.“When the time is right, the opportunity will present itself.”Referring to Pulev, Joshua added: “He wants the titles and he wants to beat me.“That’s what he possesses – hunger and motivation. I’ve got to take away that motivation and suppress that confidence.“That’s how you beat somebody, by breaking their soul.” Tyson Fury’s list of opponents is “laughable” in comparison to Anthony Joshua who will prove himself as “the baddest man on the planet”, says promoter Eddie Hearn.- Advertisement – Tyson Fury has delayed his return to the ring Tyson Fury has delayed his return to the ring
