- Eddie Hearn’s belief that Anthony Joshua will knock out Tyson Fury.
- The Matchroom chief revealed last week that the contracts are signed for the bout.
Hearn, who revealed on talkSPORT Breakfast that the fight could take place at Wembley Stadium in London, has backed his man to produce the goods when he goes head-to-head with the Gypsy King.
“AJ, like Lawrence Okolie winning the world title last week, is very inexperienced in boxing terms,” Hearn explained.
“This is a guy who had 40 amateur fights, which is absolutely nothing in the amateur code.
“He went on and won silver in the world championships, and actually should have won gold there, and won gold in the Olympics.
“After 16 fights he was challenging for the world title. After 18 fights he was fighting Wladimir Klitschko for the unified title and after 20 fights he was unifying again against Joseph Parker – so he had to learn very quickly.
“I just believe the momentum is with Anthony Joshua. Every time AJ fights he looks to get his guy out of there before the final bell.”
“He’s 30 years of age and he’s in the absolute prime of his life. Tyson Fury has been fighting since the age of five or six, as early as he can remember, he’s very experienced, he’s technically fantastic, he’s very awkward and he knows his way around the ring.
“This fight could go the distance but I truly believe Anthony Joshua will stop him when they fight. Every day that passes I believe it more and more.”
