Eddie Hearn has Tyson Fury’s return figured out, won’t be Deontay Wilder
Eddie Hearn has predicted Tyson Fury will not fight Deontay Wilder immediately despite a recent revelation from Bob Arum on the matter.
The Top Rank boss stated the Wilder v Fury rematch could happen straight away following an easy win for the Briton against Tom Schwarz.
‘The Gypsy King’ lit up Las Vegas in his MGM Grand debut. He channeled Apollo Creed for his ‘Living in America’ ring walk.
“Now that Tyson Fury has left Las Vegas, it is a much quieter place. He was a big hit in town and everyone wants him back for his next fight,” said Arum.
America took Fury to their hearts. Hearn believes another similar event is planned for later in the year in New York City.
“He’s going to have another easy touch later in the year. Then hopefully next year we’ll see him even fight Wilder, or the Ruiz-Joshua winner,” Hearn told Sky Sports.
“Fury had a good week, he’s a very good fighter, he’s a great character. I would like to see him in slightly more competitive fights, with better undercards,. But he’s going to do his thing and he’ll get another easy win later in the year. I think next year you’ll see him in some big fights.”
On the level of opposition, Hearn added: “Fury is a great entertainer. Tom Schwarz, with all due respect, I don’t believe would win a British title.
“Tyson did what he was supposed to do, entertain, get an easy win, make some good money.”
In the build-up and since the Schwarz fight, Fury and Wilder have been vocal on Joshua, airing their opinions on the Andy Ruiz loss.
Hearn doesn’t pay too much attention to what Fury and Wilder say on social media, though.
“Everybody has got an opinion,” The Matchroom promoter said. “Tyson Fury’s comments fluctuate every day. He praised Joshua then he’s slagged him off.
“Wilder’s said what he’s going to say, but look, it doesn’t really matter. You’ve got to take the rough with the smooth in life.
“They love you when you’re on the way up and they kick you when you’re on the way down,” added Hearn.
