Warren: We Got Wilder For Fury - Hearn Was Unable For Joshua

by Frank Warren, courtesy of The Daily Star

Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight in the world and on his day will beat anyone in the division.

But you have to be wary of banana skins – and he could slip up against Otto Wallin if he doesn’t bring his top performance at the T-Mobile Arena here in Las Vegas.

I’ve no doubt he will do that as he has prepared for this as if it is the biggest fight of his career.

Fury is rejuvenated as he gets set for his highly-anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder.

This is the second leg of his proper entrance into the American market after he beat up Tom Schwarz back in June.

Eddie Hearn said this week that the Gypsy King’s profile is getting hurt by facing Wallin.

If he really thinks that then he should visit Las Vegas this weekend.

One walk down the Strip and all you can see his Fury’s face on huge billboards while the fight is on ESPN+ in the US to a huge audience.

If it wasn’t Wallin, who is there to fight? He’s fighting an undefeated and ranked fighter.

He is fighting a boxer with a 20-0 record.

If you’d have gone back eight months ago and made Wallin against Andy Ruiz Jnr – who went on to beat Joshua - people would have been questioning who would win.

He is also keeping busy while Wilder deals with his committed bout with Showtime, was he supposed to just not fight?

We also delivered for Fury what Hearn couldn’t do for Anthony Joshua and that was getting our man the fight with Wilder.

And now he is going to face him again early next year.

Hearn should focus on resurrecting Joshua’s career because it is currently on the floor like he was in his last fight.

This is all about keeping Fury active and ensuring he is in perfect condition for the Wilder fight next year.

But before we can really start planning for that huge fight, he has to come through this one unscathed.

And the one thing we have learnt in boxing is that anything can happen.

Watch Fury v Wallin live on BT Sport Box Office from 2am.

[QUOTE=jonnyc420;20058354]A decision Wilder probably regrets after Fury was robbed after giving him a boxing lesson. Wilder should be ashamed to even be seen with Fury's belt. Although idk if he would even beat AJ anyway lol. Wilder cheerleaders triggered now.…
