Eddie Hearn 'Wouldn't Be Surprised' If Joshua Sparred With Fury Ahead Of Wilder Fight

Eddie Hearn 'Wouldn't Be Surprised' If Joshua Sparred With Fury Ahead Of Wilder Fight

Eddie Hearn says he "wouldn't be surprised" if Anthony Joshua followed through on his offer to help Tyson Fury out ahead of his rematch with Deontay Wilder.

The two-time world heavyweight champion offered his services to 'the Gypsy King', telling him that he would be willing to spar with him across the stand as he prepares for his second bout with the WBC world champion in February.

Fury was quick to see the proposal and told his fellow Brit he would "love" to have him in his camp, as well as congratulating him for his victory over Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia.

And while 'AJ' is a busy man given all the promotional commitments he has going on, his promoter Hearn reckons the 30-year old is serious about his offer.

"Now he's said it, I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up flying out there and doing some rounds. It's a weird one."

Joshua recently stated that sparring Fury would also be for his own benefit as he believes if the lineal champion was to win against Wilder, then "he would be more inclined to fight me next and quicker than Wilder would."

Hearn, meanwhile, is adamant that the pair of Brits will slug it out in a marquee heavyweight bout in the future - irrespective of the result in the upcoming fight in Las Vegas.

"They'll definitely fight, win or lose," he added.

"If Fury loses against Wilder, I promise you AJ and Fury will fight at some stage in the future.

"I can't say the same about Wilder. He [Joshua] hopes Fury wins because he knows Fury will fight him. The whole problem before is, that they all wanted 50-50. Neither of them [Wilder or Fury] deserved it."
