Hearn said, “His (Fury’s) time is coming, and he is gonna get his wish because the fight is gonna happen, and hopefully there will be some good news soon. When it does, there’s only one winner, only one winner. I am so confident and like I said, working hard.”

Meanwhile, he added some more cheek to the tale and continued, “Hey Tyson (Fury) can you unblock me? Because when we get this fight made, I want to start the banter. Online. And it’s not fair that he can say something about me on social and I can’t reply.”
