Hearn: I Believe Joshua Will Knock Out Pulev and Tyson Fury

Eddie Hearn, promoter for IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, believes his boxer will score a knockout win over mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev and WBC champion Tyson Fury.

Joshua is scheduled to face Pulev on a the tentative date of December 12.

Should he win, the British star would be in position to face Fury in 2021.

But to get there on his end, Fury must overcome the challenge of Deontay Wilder in their trilogy fight, which is scheduled for the tentative date of December 19.

Joshua has been out of the ring since December 2019, when he won a twelve round decision over Andy Ruiz in Saudi Arabia. The contest was a rematch of their bout from June of the same year, when Ruiz pulled off a massive upset by dropping Joshua four times to secure a seventh round stoppage at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

After a cautious win in the rematch, Hearn indicates that Joshua is ready to batter his opponents.

"I actually messaged him and I said: 'You're going to steamroll through these guys," Hearn told Sky Sports.

He just replied in capitals and said: STEAMROLL! I think he'd love to [stop Fury]. Yeah. He knows that Fury is an outstanding fighter and it's going to be very difficult. But you can ask him for yourself, I believe he has bad intentions in those fights and I believe he expects to. I believe he will knock out Kubrat Pulev and Tyson Fury.

"I think he's ready to start doing a demolition job on these guys. I think he's shown, coming back from the Ruiz Jr fight, that he has the ability to box and move. That's in the arsenal now. But he still loves knocking people out - and when you see the drills, when you see the pads and you see that spite in his shots."

[QUOTE=JakeTheBoxer;20784952]I don`t know what are you talking about man, Fury beat Wallin about 9-3 in rounds regardless the huge cut. Cuts are pure luck. Joshua was terribly beaten by Ruiz, who would not even be a competition for Fury. I…

[QUOTE=BangEM;20785195]No, Dillian Whyte really sparked Fury in sparring and Peter Fury did indirectly confirm it because it was during the period when he was Fury's coach. But he said sparring is sparring. And Fury already said what happened between him…
