(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Fury sat down with Hearn in Arlington, Texas, where he is supporting fellow Briton Billy Joe Saunders, who fights Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez for the WBC, WBA and WBO super-middleweight titles on Sunday.
Fury – holder of the WBC heavyweight title – is expected to take on Joshua – the IBF, WBO and WBA champion – in Saudi Arabia in late July or early August.
Financial terms are said to have been agreed almost a year ago but the final points of the arrangement are being worked on. Hearn told listeners of his podcast that both he, Joshua and Fury were all intent on concluding a deal.
“I can’t wait to get the big dosser in the ring and give him a good hiding to prove to the world what a fake he is,” added Fury.
“AJ couldn’t lace my boots. He doesn’t have the minerals to fight me. He’s a great champion. The real difference is he’s a businessman and I am a spartan. We’ve all got a few quid, what does it matter? We’re all bare bums in the shower at the end of the day.
“You can have all the money in the world, what can you take with you? Nothing. Everything on this world will stay here but do you know what, they’ll be talking about me in 1,000 years – the Gypsy King from England.”
