Hearn: Fury Event is Stinker, Nobody Knows He's Even Fighting!

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport is not convinced that Tyson Fury will collide with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder in a rematch next year.

Wilder is slated to face Luis Ortiz in a rematch in the coming months, while Fury returns on Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Fury will face heavy underdog Otto Wallin.

Hearn promotes numerous heavyweight contenders, including former unified world champion Anthony Joshua.

Fury made his Las Vegas debut a few months ago, when he dominated and stopped overmatched opponent Tom Schwarz in the second round.

Wallin is viewed by some expects as being just as big of an underdog.

Based on Fury's opposition and the delay in finalizing Wilder-Ortiz, Hearn is not sure that a Wilder-Fury rematch comes off.

"God knows if that will even happen. One, [Wilder] hasn’t announced his Luis Ortiz fight yet. I understand that’s going to happen soon, the announcement. But look at Fury’s fight this Saturday. No one even knows he’s fighting," Hearn told IFL TV. 

"ESPN and Bob Arum are having an absolute stinker because this fight is non-existent. Non-existent. There will be no one in the arena, other than complimentary tickets.  I mean, Fury’s a genius, because he’s done this big deal where he’s just having all these easy fights. But his profile is going like that [downhill] because no one even knows he’s fighting. After beating Tom Schwarz last time out, Fury now fights Otto Wallin.

"So all this big stuff about ESPN, the exposure, no one knows he’s fighting. No one is going to the venue. Who is talking about him? This is Fury, he’s supposed to be the best heavyweight in the world. He’s fighting on Saturday, no one knows. It’s on Box Office in the UK – are you mad? The whole thing [Fury v Wilder rematch] just seems weird. I don’t know what’s happening."

[QUOTE=tophat1;20047866]Good point, its tyson fury fight week and most people on here are talking about aj and ruiz. Bob has lost touch of what the fans want . Terrence Crawford's next fight is a clear example of that[/QUOTE] Well said…

This series should be called bum fights. This is his fourth bum fight out of five fights.

[QUOTE=BoZz;20048263]Fury's event might be a stinker but he did toy with the man who was considered the best in the division, the guy who you and your cash cow avoided all these years. And the only reason people are noticing…

[QUOTE=greeneye99;20048195]Bob Arum If you gonna hate on him at least spell his name right Lol[/QUOTE] Harem was a deliberate "mistake" designed to heighten his point about Arum being a pimp.
