Tyson Fury vs. Anthony Joshua Set For November Or December, Says Eddie Hearn

Tyson Fury vs. Anthony Joshua Set For November Or December, Says Eddie Hearn

Eddie Hearn has told Tyson Fury to "hurry up" and win a third fight with Deontay Wilder so he can set up a blockbuster meeting with Anthony Joshua in November or December.

But Matchroom boss Hearn wants the 'Gypsy King' to fight Joshua in a mega showdown.

Speaking to iFL TV, he said: "People don't want the third fight. They've had 19 rounds now, Wilder's probably won three of them and in the last fight he got battered.

"But I understand the contractual position. He does have a right to a rematch clause.

"I'd just say 'Hurry up, please' and do it quickly. We just hope they get on with it and get it out of the way."

Joshua, who reclaimed the heavyweight world titles against Andy Ruiz Jr, is set to face mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev in June at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before hopefully taking on Fury in an undisputed clash in November or December.

Hearn added: "We can't get Fury, we've got to fight Pulev and we'll get that out of the way.

"Hopefully, Fury can get his out of the way and we can get this done in November or December this year."

Hearn continued by saying: "No banana skins, all business.

"AJ beats Pulev at Tottenham Hotspur, Fury beats Wilder again, probably in America and let's make it happen.

"You'll get some crazy numbers around the world to host it but how often are we going to get the chance for two Brits to fight for the undisputed heavyweight world championship?

"To do it at Wembley Stadium would be special.

"We've got the chance now to make an undisputed fight between two British champions. We would be daft not to make this happen."
