A few days back, ‘The Gypsy King’ again turned his attention towards the Matchroom boss, accusing him of not promoting Billy Joe Saunders to his full extent. Fury’s comments reached Hearn, and he clapped back at the undefeated boxing kingpin.

In a conversation with iFL TV, he said, “You’ve brought Parker in camp and you’re plotting the downfall of Chisora. He just talks absolute b***cks, Tyson Fury. I’ve never seen someone talk so much b***cks.” (h/t Michael Benson)

On May 1, Chisora and Parker will lock horns against each other. This fight will play a pivotal role in both the fighters’ careers. That said, ‘The Gypsy King’ saw an opportunity there to help Parker for this fight. This didn’t quite impress the Matchroom supremo.

Citing the same, Hearn issued verbal jabs at his foe, thus elevating the rivalry with Fury to a different level. Moving further, it’ll be interesting to see how the WBC heavyweight king comes up with a response. Or could Hearn have the last laugh following tomorrow’s Parker vs Chisora?
