And Anthony Joshua's promoter initially backed fellow Brit Fury to beat Wilder, but he's now tipping the undefeated American to retain his WBC belt.

Hearn fancies Wilder to stop Fury after hearing a "few things" from the Gypsy King's camp in preparation for the blockbuster rematch.

"I thought [Fury] might win the fight, but I've heard a few things in the camp and stuff like that," he told talkSPORT.

"Listen, it might be rubbish, but [now] I do think Wilder's gonna win the fight by stoppage.

Fury, meanwhile, has vowed to KO Wilder and Hearn weighed in on his prediction.

"Wilder doesn't really have a chin, but Fury can't really hit that hard in heavyweight terms," he added.

"For me, Wilder should be more reckless in the fight."
