Hearn speaks about the Usik-Fury fight

British promoter Eddie Hearn expressed hope that Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs) will defeat Oleksandr Usik (21-0, 14 KOs) in a fight for the title of absolute world heavyweight champion. This will increase the chances of organizing a fight between the Gypsy King, as the Manchester native is called, and Anthony Joshua (27-3, 24 KOs).

Hearn said this in an interview with TNT Sports following the results of the grand boxing night in Saudi Arabia on December 23, sportbible.com reports. Commenting on the victory of Joshua, whose case he manages, the promoter emphasized that the defeat of Deontay Wilder (43-3-1, 42 KOs) by Joseph Parker (34-3, 23 KOs) put an end to the confrontation between the American and Anthony.

"This is boxing. It happens in this business. Joshua wants to become a three-time world champion. I want to see him fight Tyson Fury. If Tyson Fury can beat Oleksandr Usik, I'd like to see that fight. I like this fight. I hope that Tyson will beat Usik. Joshua is the man you'll need to watch in 2024," Hearn said.
