Eddie Hearn doesn't thinks Tyson fury vs Anthony Joshua would work


Eddie Hearn thinks Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua won't fight on December 3 as their fight talks are seemingly up in negotiations. 

Heavyweight champion Fury stated he would come out of retirement by offering Joshua the chance to settle their domestic rivalry on December 3 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. 'AJ' accepted terms offered by Fury and the two teams began to discuss fight contracts, but Joshua missed Fury's proposed deadline of Monday to sign a contract and the fight was seemingly off.

Fury then turned his attention to a fight with Manuel Charr but, in a bizarre turn of events 'The Gypsy King' said Queensbury Promotions boss Frank Warren had convinced him to go back into negotiations with Joshua, leaving Charr frustrated as he accused Fury of avoiding a fight against him. Hearn is still not confident Fury vs Joshua will take place due to Fury wanting the fight to be finalised today.

"I think as we sit here now, I'd say no [it doesn't happen]," Hearn told Off Script on Dubai Eye. "I've just opened up Instagram and saw he's called out Manuel Charr again. he's calling him out like this a guy who is an actual credible heavyweight. 'You're the one Manuel, you've got the guts.' This is a guy who's not even rated. It's a chronic mismatch and if he doesn't want to fight 'AJ', why doesn't he fight Joe Joyce? He's ready to guy and they have the same promotional company."

Fury has been extremely vocal on social media amid his negotiations with Joshua, even calling for a second fight on December 3 if he ultimately ends up fighting Charr instead of his domestic rival. Hearn, who thinks even Fury's promoters are confused by the whole situation, said there are still conversations to be had about commercial rights for the fight.
