Eddie Hearn, promoter for WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, is holding his nose at the recent comments made by Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, who co-promotes WBC world champion Tyson Fury.

A few months ago, the two sides were close to a deal to stage Fury vs. Joshua on a date in August in Saudi Arabia.

The unification fell apart when an arbitrator ordered Fury to honor a rematch clause due to Deontay Wilder.

Fury will now defend against Wilder on October 9th, while Joshua faces mandatory challenger Oleksandr Usyk on September 25.

Provided both champions come away with wins, Arum would like to stage Fury-Joshua in the UK - and the Hall of Fame promoter claims that he's not concerned with other countries offering more money to secure the rights.

"My hope is that the fight goes to the UK. I don't care what the money is. Both fighters owe the UK fans this tremendous event at Wembley or Cardiff, rather than taking it to a foreign country," Arum told Sky Sports.

Hearn is not sold on Arum's take on the matter.

At the end of the day, Hearn expects money to dictate the location for Fury-Joshua.

"Do you honestly think that Bob Arum would do the fight in the UK for half the money that was available elsewhere? Honestly, ask yourself that question. I've never heard so much bollocks in my whole life, 'oh let's do it in the UK, the UK deserves it man! I don't see a problem making the fight.' Yeah because it's been smooth as you like so far hasn't it?," Hearn told IFL TV.

"I don't even think that he's intentionally lying. I just think that it's waffle. But when the money comes through, what I'll do is I'll say 'Bob, I saw your quote where you said you want this fight.' So as long as his man is ready to take half the money, which means half of his commission, I'll ask him 'are you good with that, yeah?' We'll see."
