Popular boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn has come out to say that Anthony Joshua’s heavyweight showdown with Tyson Fury could finally happen in February, 2022. He recently revealed this to the press, and the world has been reacting.
According to him, the highly sought after fight can be revived if both of them can come through their respected challenges unscathed, with February being seen as the new date.
He added that the fight would simply be about generating as much money as possible.
His words, “We wanted to do it in December.”
“But I think with AJ fighting September 25, Fury now delayed until October, I think February is more realistic.”
“They had a huge offer from Saudi Arabia to do the fight there.”
“Ultimately in the fight game, which is extremely dangerous and these guys are putting themselves on the line, it is about generating as much money for the fight as possible.”
“With fans back in the UK is that an option? Las Vegas? We’ll see.”
“But first things first, let’s just beat Usyk, because if that doesn’t go to plan we can forget about it.”
“No, I haven’t had any talks with anyone because I don’t want to waste my time.”
“I spent six months wasting my time so let’s get these fights out of the way and let’s see what happens.”
