Asked if the bout could reach 2.5 million PPV buys as suggested by Frank Warren, the Matchroom boss replied: "More!"

He continued by saying that he expects it to do 3 million PPV buys: "I believe this does 3 million buys.

"You're never, ever going to get a fight like this again."

Joshua vs. Wladimir Klitschko remains the highest grossing U.K PPV with a reported 1.5 million buys.

Hearn's predicted figure for Fury vs. Joshua will DOUBLE the current PPV record in the U.K.

He's also previously said that the PPV will not cost £40 after Simon Jordan suggested Sky Sports will increase the price of the event.

Hearn explained: "I don't know where these rumours come from.

"Again, I haven't had any discussions about the PPV price, I certainly don't think it'll be £40.

"So, nothing's been discussed, nothing's been set.

"I just started getting some tweets and some DMs going, 'You're a disgrace! £40 PPV.'

"I was like, 'Where's that come from? No discussions.

"I like Simon Jordan, but I don't know where they got that from?"
