Anthony Joshua’s adversary Tyson Fury has been warned by Eddie Hearn ahead of the Deontay Wilder trilogy.
On October 9, Tyson Fury will battle Deontay Wilder for the third time in a trilogy, with the American out for vengeance.
Despite still endorsing Tyson Fury to win his trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder, Eddie Hearn has remarked that the British fighter “doesn’t appear ready.” The promoter is still grieving from Anthony Joshua’s loss to Aleksandr Usyk last Saturday, a fight many expected AJ to win to set up a long-awaited rematch with his British opponent.
Those intentions are now jeopardized, as Joshua, 31, must focus on enforcing his rematch clause with the Ukrainian boxer, who is now the new owner of the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles.
Meanwhile, Fury will battle Wilder for the third time next Saturday, October 9 in Las Vegas.
The fight comes three years after their disputed draw in 2018, before the ‘Gypsy King’ won the rematch in seven rounds in 2020.
Fury, 33, planned to postpone the third agreed-upon fight until 2022 while negotiating a fight with Joshua, but Wilder filed a lawsuit, and the judge ruled in his favor.
The trilogy clash was originally scheduled for September but was postponed after Fury tested positive for Covid-19, and now Hearn has told Boxing Social that the British fighter is unprepared.
“In my perspective, Tyson Fury doesn’t appear ready,” he stated.
“I still believe he’ll win comfortably, but there’s a chance he’ll make a mistake.”
“You could lose the fight if you make a mistake against Deontay Wilder. He’s a real threat.” “I don’t think he’ll lose a round, but it doesn’t matter.” One blunder, and it’s all over. I sincerely hope he wins because I want the WBC to order Fury v (Dillian) Whyte to be made mandatory.” The last fight between Fury and the 34-year-old Wilder shattered records, with over $13 million in ticket sales at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The significant difference this time is that, because to Covid-19, Fury will not have the benefit of traveling assistance.
And Hearn, 42, was quick to strike back, claiming that there was “zero hype” about the fight.
“Take a look at Fury-Wilder; they’re giving tickets away.” They’re lowering prices, and that’s one of the most important battles going on right now.
“It won’t,” says the narrator of “Brinkwire Summary News.”
