Eddie Hearn looks like he is all set to drop a bombshell just after Saturday’s fight between ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders. The Matchroom promoter wants to make the final announcement about the highly anticipated Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua as soon as possible.
Speaking to the DAZN Boxing Show – he is due to join DAZN in July – he said:
“I can’t speak on behalf of Tyson Fury, but even speaking on behalf of him I don’t think anything’s in jeopardy. We received the offer from the site on Friday night and we are reviewing that with the teams. There are three different sets of lawyers on this, from the fight in terms of the promotion.
“Everyone’s moving as fast as they can, nothing is in jeopardy. In an ideal world I’d love to be in the ring with you guys on Saturday after the Canelo fight, so we’ll see if that’s possible.”
