Hearn Feels He Can Create a Good Path For Fury To Land Joshua

Eddie Hearn has told Tyson Fury he would have a "straight forward" route to the "grand prize" of fighting domestic rival Anthony Joshua by signing with his promotion company.

Former heavyweight champion Fury is training towards a first bout since dethroning Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, having ballooned in weight in the intervening period.

Fury, who picked up the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO titles with his victory over Klitschko, had a serious battle with depression and substance abuse - which eventually led to the loss of his titles and his license to box.


It is little secret that Fury has targeted IBF, IBO and WBA champion Joshua, who first must overcome WBO belt-holder Joseph Parker in their unification bout this month.

Joshua and Parker will stake their undefeated records on March 31 at Principality in Cardiff, Wales.

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will be ringside and plans to call out the winner.

Even though Joshua vs. Wilder is arguably become the biggest fight in boxing - a showdown between Joshua and Fury is easily the biggest money fight possible in the UK.

Fury is without a promoter and Hearn says that if he were to link up with Matchroom then the glamour fight with Joshua, who is already on Hearn's books, would be much easier to achieve.

There is talk that Fury might sign with Hearn's main rival, Frank Warren.

"There have been a lot of rumours that he will join up with us. That's not true, as far as I know," Matchroom boss Hearn exclusively told Sky Sports.

"We're not close to any kind of agreement. We've had some conversations. I think he's talking to [other promoters] right now.

"If he comes with us, there's a very straightforward road into a lot of heavyweight fights. Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte, Tony Bellew.

"Ultimately the grand prize of Joshua because that is a huge fight."

Im not that keen on this fight anymore. Furys one of the most overrated boxers I’ve ever seen. He gets dropped by AJ and Wilder.

Yes, I can see that path for Fury now: Ancient Shannon Briggs, chinless David Price and finally mini Tony Bellew to lead up to the epic Joshua clash. Fury ought to sign with Sauerland, just so I can hear stories…
