Bob Arum, head of Top Rank, said his British counterpart Eddie Hearn has just one contract fight with WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. According to Arum, this is why Hearn is trying so hard to organize a unification duel with Tyson Fury this summer.
“Eddie Hearn has only one fight left under Joshua’s contract. Therefore, he wants to organize a big fight for him. Against Usyk, this is also a good fight, but not as big as against Fury. If you look at how events are developing now, then the confrontation between Tyson and Anthony seems unreal either this year or next year or even a year later, and Joshua, like Fury, needs to enter the ring soon, ”Arum said.
Bob Arum also confirmed that they intend to organize a third fight for Fury against Deontay Wilder.
“Fury’s fight against Joshua looks dead. Tyson has too much easy time, so he has to fight this summer, and who else can he fight besides Wilder? The third fight between them is a huge event, ”added Arum.
