Promoter Bob Arum reacted to the recent statement of his British colleague Eddie Hearn, who admitted that he had forbidden him from discussing with the media the planned megafight of British heavyweight champions Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO) and Anthony Joshua (24-1-0, 23 KO).
“Yes, that is right. There is a clause in our agreement that the negotiators should not talk about this until they are completed. We, for our part, adhere to the prohibition, and I already know that Eddie’s people scolded him for it.
Eddie must shut up until the end of the deal. We are making great strides, because both he and we have professionals who understand their business and excellent lawyers. So we and Matchroom are constantly exchanging and correcting draft contracts, narrowing down the issues, ”said Arum.
