Anthony Joshua’s Tactics To Beat Tyson Fury In Unification Clash Revealed By Eddie Hearn

Fury, 31, produced a stunning display last Saturday to stop Wilder in the seventh round and capture the WBC championship.

Hearn believes that 'AJ' would have to take the fight to the newly-crowned WBC champ and "fight him on the inside."

The Matchroom chief told Boxing Scene: "You box [Fury], you fight him, you fight him on the inside.

"You know what he's going to do; you know he's got the ability to do whatever he wants. He won't walk Joshua down like he did to Wilder, he won't.

"Joshua's too strong, he's too sharp and he's too good. [Joshua is] not just waiting for this big right hand over the top.

"He's got left hooks, he's got uppercuts, he can fight to the body, he can fight on the inside, he can fight long.

"And Fury knows that, Fury will fight the fight against 'AJ' that he boxed against Wladimir Klitschko.

"I don't believe 'AJ' loses that fight but right now, the bookmakers say 'AJ' is the underdog in that fight and I love it."

Joshua's promoter has insisted that a unification match must happen now while both Brits hold all of the major heavyweight titles.

"We've got two Brits who can unify and become the undisputed champion of the world, we must take that chance and we will take it," Hearn told BBC Sport.

"Three months ago, [Wilder and Andy Ruiz Jr's promoter] Al Haymon and the Americans had the heavyweight division on lockdown, now we control it all.

"Everyone is combined to try and make it happen and talks are already under way.

"Because me, 'AJ,' Tyson Fury, [Fury's co-promoter] Bob Arum, all these people, they want that fight to happen."
