The head of the Matchroom Boxing promotion company Eddie Hearn, who represents the interests of the British boxer Anthony Joshua, commented on the situation with the possible signing of a contract for a fight with the WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

“We received the contract a few days ago. It was not what we expected and we sent it back. Now it becomes as we expected. This is very positive. We don’t say anything negative like they do. I have never talked to Frank Warren (Tyson’s promoter. – ed. Sport.ua), so I wasn’t sure if it would work. But now I met him, and we got along. We got along very well.

I think we put everything aside and said, “Look, we have a chance to do something special. We don’t have much time, the broadcasters have to negotiate, but we would like to do it.” When we got the contract, it was maybe 90-10 against the fight, but now we’re positive about organizing it. The probability is 70-80 percent, but everything can change very quickly – someone suddenly gets injured, someone needs more time, or Tyson Fury wants to fight someone else,” said Hearn.

Earlier, Eddie Hearn spoke about a possible fight between Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk and American Deontay Wilder.
