Tyson Fury's boxing record 'laughable' compared to Anthony Joshua's, slams Eddie Hearn ahead of proposed title fight | The Sun

September 14, 2022

TYSON FURY possesses a 'laughable' boxing record in comparison to Anthony Joshua, Eddie Hearn once claimed.

The Matchroom boss has been AJ's promoter since he turned professional in 2013, overseeing fights against the likes of Wladimir Klitschko and Dillian Whyte.

Joshua is currently licking his wounds following another defeat to Oleksandr Usyk, going down by split decision in Jeddah.

But back in 2020 – before Joshua won back his belts against Kubrat Pulev – Hearn was adamant that AJ had faced better fighters than Fury.

He told Sky Sports: "It makes me laugh when people look at AJ's resume.

"Maybe I'm seeing something other people don't?

"I mean Dillian Whyte, Dominic Breazeale, Wladimir Klitschko, Joseph Parker, Alexander Povetkin, Carlos Takam, Andy Ruiz, Kubrat Pulev.

"These are consecutive fights. You don't see Tom Schwarz, Otto Wallin, Sefer Seferi.

"Who is the other geezer? I can't even remember his name, the Italian bloke? And then Agit Kabayel.

"I mean it's laughable when you compare the two resumes, but it's in black and white for everyone to see."

Both Joshua and Fury have beaten heavyweight legend Wladimir Klitschko, the latter downing the unified champ in 2015 before experiencing personal problems.

On his comeback, the 34-year-old fought a number of lesser-known opponents before a duel with Deontay Wilder.

The 2020 rematch victory over the American saw him claim the WBC title.

Fury is vowing to finish off Joshua “nice and quickly” in their blockbuster fight, pencilled in for December 3.

If terms are sensationally agreed, it could end up being the biggest bout in British boxing history, worth over £70MILLION.

Fury, who we recently revealed is “training like a man possessed”, is not planning on hanging around when the pair step in the ring.

"Tyson wants to leave win and win in style,” a source close to the Gypsy King said

"He wants to leave no one in doubt who is the better fighter. He wants an early KO to put the whole debate about who is the better fighter to bed once and for all."
