Arum accused Hearn of disrupting the Fury-Joshua fight

Top Rank chairman Bob Arum doubts that promoter Eddie Hearn really wants to arrange a fight between WBC world champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) and Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs).

Arum harshly criticized Hearn, saying that Eddie does not want Joshua to enter the ring in a fight with Fury. Bob believes that Hearn is deliberately dragging out the negotiation process.

"Hearn is stalling [negotiations], he doesn't want the fight to happen. Hirn will drag on until the end. At the same time, Joshua wants to fight with Fury. I know Tyson wants [the fight], but Hearn doesn't."

Fury approached Joshua with a proposal to complete negotiations on a joint fight in the near future. The boxer said that his promoter Frank Warren convinced him to continue training for the fight.

In turn, German heavyweight Manuel Charr demands that Fury sign a contract for a joint fight. The German declares that everything is ready from his side and only Fury's side is taking time.

Tyson's father John Fury said his son is considering three candidates to replace Joshua: Filip Hrgovic, Andy Ruiz, and Luis Ortiz.

In social networks, Tyson repeatedly discussed a possible fight with Ukrainian champion Oleksandr Usyk.
