Yet that hasn’t stopped the promoters from trying to find out a way. Matchroom Sport CEO Eddie Hearn has always been open to the matchup. It is a fight that will bring him a lot in the pot. But Hearn also believes that Joshua will defeat the undefeated ‘Gypsy King.’

Eddie Hearn puts his money on Anthony Joshua

While interacting with IFL TV, Hearn has clarified that Joshua vs Fury is the biggest matchup in the history of boxing. The British promoter aims to earn more than $100 million from the event.

“Is there a bigger fight in world boxing? Absolutely not. How much money is there when these two fights? Hundreds of millions of dollars. So you can’t really go one way,” Hearn said.

It is alluring to hear that Eddie Hearn is confident about Joshua’s win over Fury. Not only that, but he also believes that ‘AJ’ will knockout ‘The Gypsy King’ to notch his win.

“What do you think I want? Money and the glory and success. And all three of those come from that fight, [because] he will knock Tyson Fury out.”
