"The winner of the Joshua-Ngannou fight will meet the winner of the Fury-Usyk fight. This is a dream chance for us because we have been striving for it for so long. Joshua is going to defeat Francis Ngannou, and then he will defeat the winner of the Fury-Usyk fight and become the absolute world heavyweight champion. Joshua takes the fight with Ngannou very seriously. As if he is facing a boxer who is ten times better than Fury. Because in case of defeat, it will mean that he was beaten by a boxer with a 0-1 record," Hearn said.
