Eddie Hearn believes Tyson Fury V Deontay Wilder fight will be the next bout for both boxers.
The Bronze Bomber announced on the eve of Anthony Joshua’s fight with Andy Ruiz Jr at Madison Square Garden on June 1 that his next two bouts would be against Luis Ortiz and the Gypsy King.
“I don’t believe Wilder will fight Ortiz, I think he’ll fight Fury next,” Hearn told Boxing Social.
“I think that’s what they’ll do and I think the winner will have to fight Dillian Whyte. That’s how I see it going. I don’t think Wilder will take the risk on Luis Ortiz which I think is very bad on Luis Ortiz considering they made him turn down the Joshua fight. I think they’ll go straight into that fight at the end of the year and I think the winner will have to fight Dillian Whyte.”
