Eddie Hearn has an idea of how Anthony Joshua’s next two fights will play out.
Joshua is coming off a KO win over Robert Helenius and is on a two-fight winning streak after losing back-to-back fights against Oleksandr Usyk to lose his heavyweight titles. The hope now is Joshua will fight Deontay Wilder next and after that, can secure the bout with Tyson Fury.
Although Wilder will be a tough out, Eddie Hearn is confident Anthony Joshua will KO ‘The Bronze Bomber’ and then KO Tyson Fury.
“I never like to put a timescale on his career on his career, but he did the other day when he said, ‘You know, I won’t be boxing in three [or] five years’ time.’ So, maybe we’ve got one in December and maybe we’ve got a couple of blockbusters next year. And then who knows? I don’t think he’s really got a timing on his career, but he wants to fight Wilder, and he wants to fight Fury,” Hearn told Talk Sport. “I think if he doesn’t fight them, he won’t be very happy and fulfilled with everybody he fought. Once he fights those two, he’s boxed absolutely everyone in the division, all the players.
“I am Anthony Joshua’s number one fan. In my head, call me deluded, he’s going to knock out Deontay Wilder, and then he’s going to knock out Tyson Fury. He’s going to become the undisputed heavyweight world champion and then we are going to sail off into the sunset. Like I said, call me deluded, whatever you want, I don’t care what you call me! I see it. We have the vision for that. Let’s make it happen,” Hearn continued.
If Anthony Joshua would KO both Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, it would be statement-making performances that would make him the heavyweight champ again.
