Eddie Hearn, promoter for heavyweight contender Anthony Joshua, believes Tyson Fury would beat Oleksandr Usyk - if the two unbeaten champions ever met in the ring.

Back in September, Usyk outboxed Joshua over twelve rounds to capture the IBF, WBA, IBO, WBO heavyweight titles.

And the following month, Fury retained the WBC belt, when he knocked out Deontay Wilder in the eleventh round.

However, Hearn is still confident in Joshua's ability to beat both.

“It’s hard to split those guys right now. Tyson Fury I think beats Oleksandr Usyk. I do, because of the size, because of the movement," he told the True Geordie Pain Game Podcast.

“I think it’s a great fight, it might not be the most interesting fight to watch [though]. I believe AJ can beat them all."

Joshua will face Usyk in a rematch in the first quarter of 2022.

Around the same time, Fury is potentially going to make a mandatory defense against Dillian Whyte.

The winners of both bouts will be positioned to collide in a full division unification.

In a division loaded with talent, Hearn gave his take on the top five fighters in the weight class.

"If you want to rank them now, on paper as of today, then I think you have to do one and two, Usyk and Fury," Hearn said. "You know, three AJ and four Dillian Whyte and five Deontay Wilder.

"I thought Fury's last fight was thrilling. But if I'm being critical, he's beaten one guy in the last nearly three years. I don't see how you can keep moving up the pound-for-pound list by just beating the same guy. I believe AJ is the best heavyweight in the world. Now is he still the best heavyweight in the world? He's got a point to prove."
