(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Eddie Hearn has responded to John Fury’s comments concerning the upcoming bout between Anthony Joshua and his son, Tyson, saying it was an indication that the Gypsy King’s camp ‘don’t really want the fight’.
‘We’re in a good place. I saw John Fury’s comments. It’s almost like they don’t really want the fight. I’d like them to talk it up, rather than talk it down.
‘We’re quite aware that there has been a global pandemic. We’re quite aware that it’s not easy, but we’re out there grafting away every day to get this done.
‘A little bit of support would be nice, John and Tyson, thank you very much.
‘I know that there are some negative people out there and people that believe we can’t pull it off, but we spend a lifetime pulling things off, and I believe we will get this done, and I believe you will see this fight in the summer.’
Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Qatar and China are among the sites to have been considered.
Wembley Stadium is also an option, although it remains a longshot amid doubts that the London venue may not be able to host a full capacity crowd due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The winner of the AJ-Fury clash will hold all heavyweight belts for the first time since Lennox Lewis achieved the same feat in 1999.
