Matchroom kingpin Eddie Hearn has his eyes on Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3, as the outcome will be crucial for crafting his client Anthony Joshua’s future in the heavyweight division. Following Joshua vs Usyk on September 25, Fury vs Wilder 3 on October 9 can finally pave the path for a four-belt heavyweight unification clash in the future.

That said, Hearn envisions Tyson Fury beating Deontay Wilder once again in the trilogy collision. That said, he has revealed some major insights about Fury’s recent camp that might not sit well with ‘The Gypsy King’ loyalists.

In a conversation with the Fight Hype, Eddie Hearn pointed at several scenarios surrounding the heavyweight division, including the upcoming WBC heavyweight title fight. Furthermore, Hearn believes, Fury vs Wilder 3 can actually be a 50-50 matchup, depending on various credentials.

Hearn said, “It’s always 50-50. You know, he has gone out there. He is not prepared. But he is probably still good enough. He has just not had a proper camp. I mean, you can’t compare his preparation for this fight to the last Wilder fight. You know there’s so much stuff going around.

“But he doesn’t need to be at 100%. I think I just saw an interview today. He said I can be 10% or whatever, and still and he is probably right. He can lose a round but he can’t be knocked out. So the fact that he is not prepared for the fight actually makes it a good fight.”

Wilder claims himself to be more than ready, and this means Tyson Fury can come face to face with a massive threat in the ring. He has all the features to overcome that. But cannot afford to overlook Wilder as an opponent.

That seems to have impacted the current scenario, as Hearn and Fury don’t appear to have any love for each other. In a chat with Gary Neville’s The Overlap, Tyson Fury expressed resentment on Hearn for not signing him.

“He had the opportunity to sign me, I believe he said in one of his interviews that it’s the biggest regret of his life that he didn’t sign the Gypsy King up,” said Tyson Fury.

This verbal back-and-forth keeps going between fellow Britishers Tyson Fury and Eddie Hearn. However, an in-ring scrap between ‘AJ’ and Fury put an end to that. A loudmouth, Tyson Fury, will never shy away from demeaning his critics until he is proven wrong. Hence, the undefeated world heavyweight champion can look forward to continuing the feud with Hearn. But only after surpassing Deontay Wilder for one last time.
