Eddie Hearn believes Tyson Fury will “not be happy” with the third fight against Deontay Wilder because it will generate less money than their rematch in February.

Fury beat Wilder in seven rounds to win the WBC heavyweight title last month.

Hearn feels Fury has “bigger problems” ahead of his third fight against Wilder.

“Fury-Wilder is still a big fight. Any fight that Wilder is involved in means anything can happen, but it was so one-sided. ‘But there are bigger problems in this situation if you’re Fury and you’ve put in the performance of career and won the WBC heavyweight belt because you want more money in a rematch. That probably won’t happen because there won’t be as much money generated so he’s not going to be happy,” said Hearn.

“The conversations I’ve had with Bob Arum in the last 48 hours have been pretty good in the sense of doing a deal between the winner of these next two fights to take place in November/December. We’re willing to do that deal with Wilder just in case he beats Fury in a rematch too.”
