After belittling Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder on social media, the elite boxer who is training in Las Vegas, also took shots at the UFC heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou. Whilst, ‘The Predator’ has responded, ‘AJ’ hasn’t indulged himself in trash-talk. Hence, Eddie Hearn addressed the issue in an interaction with talkSPORT.

Per Michael Benson, Hearn said, “You’ve got one guy working behind closed doors with a dream to become undisputed. And then you’ve got another bloke swanning around Vegas, wearing terrible Versace shirts, calling everyone a dosser.”

This statement proves that unified titlist, Anthony Joshua, has also begun his training, but he has revealed very little from his side. Instead, he is just putting in the hard yards behind closed doors. Although Tyson Fury has appeared to be the favorite, ‘AJ’ will also have his legitimate chances in the mix.
