Fury Reveals Text Message Exchange With Hearn Ahead Of Potential Anthony Joshua Clash

Fury Reveals Text Message Exchange With Hearn Ahead Of Potential Anthony Joshua Clash

Tyson Fury has unveiled a text message conversation with Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn, in an interview with The Sunday Times.

The exchange hints at a potential, all-British super-fight between Fury and current unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

The self-proclaimed Gypsy King returned to the ring after a lengthy time out battling mental health problems. He fought WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, in December last year where a controversial draw decision was given.

It's not known whether a rematch will happen just yet. Both unbeaten fighters have to make a decision in early February.

Joshua's next opponent is yet to be finalised after he beat Alexander Povetkin at Wembley in September last year.

A transcript of the conversation leaves the option open.

Hearn: 'Before we make our move, is it worth having a conversation about the fight?'
Fury: 'I'm ready. How much?'
Fury sent another text after no reply: 'Have you gone cold on me?'
Hearn: 'No. I want to do things properly.'
Fury: 'Send me your offer in writing. How much?'
