Eddie Hearn: “I believe Joshua will knock out Pulev and Tyson Fury”

BOXING

The promoter of the heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, Eddie Hearn, is confident that his ward will pass both challenger Kubrat Pulev and WBC champion Tyson Fury without problems.

The Joshua-Pulev fight is set to take place on December 12 and if the Briton wins, he could face Fury next year. Fury himself is not up to the prospect of a fight with Joshua now, he will have a fight with an old opponent. And if nothing extraordinary happens, on December 19, Tyson Fury (30-0) – Deontay Wilder (42-1) will play. This is the third meeting of the fighters. The first fight in 2018 ended in a draw, and in the second, in early 2020, Fury confidently won.

Hearn admits that it won’t be easy to break Fury:

“This guy is an outstanding boxer and it will be difficult to do it, nevertheless, I know that Joshua will knock out both Pulev and Fury. Joshua is ready to spoil the statistics of these guys. And he has already demonstrated a lot of what he can do in the fight with Ruiz- junior “.

Recall that Anthony Joshua has not entered the ring since December 2019 after winning a difficult 12-round duel over Andy Ruiz.
