Popular boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn has come out to claim that Anthony Joshua will knock out Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury before ending his career. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he is Anthony Joshua’s number one fan, and he believes the Nigerian will go on to become the undisputed heavyweight world champion soon.
Eddie added that if AJ does not fight both Wilder and Fury before retiring, he would not be fulfilled or happy.
His words, “I am Anthony Joshua’s number one fan. In my head, call me deluded, he’s going to knock out Deontay Wilder, and then he’s going to knock out Tyson Fury.”
“He’s going to become the undisputed heavyweight world champion and then we are going to sail off into the sunset. Like I said, call me deluded, whatever you want, I don’t care what you call me!”
“I see it. We have the vision for that. Let’s make it happen.”
“I never like to put a timescale on his career, but he did the other day when he said, “You know, I won’t be boxing in three [or] five years’ time.”
“So, maybe we’ve got one in December and maybe we’ve got a couple of blockbusters next year. And then who knows? I don’t think he’s really got a timing on his career, but he wants to fight Wilder, and he wants to fight Fury.”
“I think if he doesn’t fight them, he won’t be very happy and fulfilled with everybody he fought. Once he fights those two, he’s boxed absolutely everyone in the division, all the players.”
