Eddie Hearn Speaks With Tyson Fury, Offers To Guide Career

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom is very interested in working with former unified heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs).

Fury has been out of the ring since November 2015, when he traveled over to Germany to score an upset twelve round decision over Wladimir Klitschko to capture the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world titles.

The IBF title was taken away after Fury failed to make a mandatory defense Czar Glazkov. And he vacated the remaining titles to focus on his mental health issues.

After Fury admitted to abusing recreational drugs and alcohol, the British Boxing Board of Control took away his license to box.

But now Fury is back in training and motivated to return next year. Fury has a hearing sent for next month with UK Anti-Doping, who claim the boxer tested positive for a banned substance in early 2015.

Hearn is motivated to help Fury get back on track - in order to make a British mega-bout against WBA, IBF, IBO champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) in 2018.

Hearn has spoken with Fury and from he's been told the heavyweight boxer is a free agent.

"I've spoken to him," Hearn exclusively told Sky Sports. "I think he needs some help in terms of a team, it's a process that is complicated.

"He needs the right advice, he wants to box on the biggest shows, be a box office fighter and fight AJ, I can deliver all those things. More importantly, not thinking about his next promotional move, it's more about getting him back in the ring, he has a lot on his plate.

"I understand he is a free agent. I don't know the ins and outs of that but certainly, if he was we would be very interested in working with Tyson Fury. We can give him the biggest heavyweight fights and ultimately work towards the biggest fight in British boxing history."

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;18240742]Of course they should look at the split. Mandatories get 75/25 and bring no belts to the table. A world champion should get more than that.[/QUOTE] You're not mandatory. Work your way into that if you want that guarantee. A…

If Fury wasn't a free agent, would Eddie have made this 'Nice guy' move? Neither are c*nts but both far away from sane, selfless, sound fellas.
