Hearn said Joshua has a chance to fight Fury

Promoter Eddie Hearn has said that Anthony Joshua has a chance to fight WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

“Then he will do another interview where he will say that he will not be satisfied with his career if he does not fight Joshua. If you take even one of his words seriously, then you are a fool. But Fury is interesting, he is a showman."

“You'd have to be pretty stupid to think Fury would fight Joe Joyce over Anthony Joshua when AJ is worth 7-9 times more. But let's see how everything will be. At the moment, there is no particular point in discussing it, because Joshua is focused on March - early April, and Fury can fight Usyk."

Roy Jones previously said he could become Joshua's trainer and said Anthony lost his rematch with WBA/WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk due to a misunderstanding with his trainer Robert Garcia.

AJ wants to get in the ring for his next fight with Dillian Whyte. It will be recalled that the former "interim" WBC super heavyweight champion Dillian White defeated the American Jermaine Franklin by decision - 115-115, 116-112, 116-112.
