(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Tyson Fury reassured Eddie Hearn in person that he is fully focused on agreeing the dream fight with Anthony Joshua, the promoter revealed.
IBF, WBA and WBO champion Joshua and WBC titleholder Fury are now “on the verge” of a one-fight deal to decide the undisputed heavyweight championship in “the biggest fight in British boxing history,” Hearn says.
“I bumped into Fury in Vegas and he reassured me that he’s all-in,” Joshua’s promoter Hearn Said.
“There are lots of characters involved – some are not so involved but still have comments to make.
“I wanted to see Fury because you see interviews from various people and I had started to doubt that he actually wanted the fight. I felt that he did.
“When we met up, he made me feel that he really wants this fight.
“‘Let’s get this done, it’s the only fight that I want’.
“He’s bang up for this fight and so is Joshua.”
