Hearn spoke to SkySports and gave an insight into how preparations were going. He said, “Completely…He is training, sleeping, resting. I want to rein him in for a rest. He is so focused. Although he’d tell you that he’s training just to improve as a fighter, I know that all he’s thinking about is Fury.”

This is easy to believe as ‘AJ’ is famous for his hard work and dedication in the gym. He goes into the fight against Fury as a massive underdog. However, if the comments from Hearn are anything to go by, Joshua seems to be thriving on the underdog status.

Eddie Hearn comments on Tyson Fury’s training

The promoter also spoke about what Joshua’s opponent is doing during this time. Fury has previously said Joshua would be his easiest fight ever, and he would have no problem knocking him out. However, Hearn thinks otherwise.

He said, “Fury is a fantastic fighter but AJ will do a job on him. The preparation starts now. Don’t think Fury isn’t doing the same. He knows. This may be the biggest fight of all time.”

This comment showed Hearn’s confidence in his fighter. Experts suggested Fury’s boxing ability and awkward style would be too much for Joshua to handle. However, if the promoter’s comments hold value, ‘The Gypsy King’ may face a Joshua fully equipped for his awkward style.

Despite all the talk between the fighters, Hearn is right in saying this could be an all-time classic fight. Therefore, both men will come into the ring on the back of the best preparation they could have.

What do you make of these comments from Eddie Hearn? Do you think Anthony Joshua can beat Tyson Fury?
