Eddie Hearn: “Arum forbade me to talk about the fight between Joshua and Fury”


Eddie Hearn, promoter of WBA / IBF / WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (24-1-0, 23 KO) admitted to being criticized by WBC Champion Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO) co-promoter Bob Arum, who considered his work with the media too active.

“Bob Arum called me two days ago and said, ‘I think you should stop talking about the Joshua and Fury fight.” I asked: “Why?” And he replied: “Because of you and I have to discuss it.” But what should I do if I am asked about this ten times a day?

To be honest, we have already sent them the contract, but they rated it rather low, and now it is being finalized. And out of harm’s way, I will continue to talk about two weeks [до подписания контрактов]but our plan is, of course, to do that as soon as possible, ”Hearn said.
