Since the Gypsy King did so, talk of an undisputed showdown between the British duo has surfaced.Fury must first get past Wilder again later this year, however, after the American activated the rematch clause in their contract, while Joshua is scheduled to face IBF mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev.But Hearn, who recently recovered from a heart attack, believes a dream matchup between the pair is “95 per cent” certain to happen at the start of next year.“Anthony Joshua is probably the easiest boxer I have ever worked with, he literally will fight anybody and he is very keen on unifying the titles and Tyson has the missing belt,” the 71-year-old told Betfred.“Tyson is not afraid of anyone, at the same time, and he knows if he beats Joshua he will be an even bigger global figure. “The good news about this pile-up of global sport events is that there will be competition for airtime when sport returns and people will not pay for tick-over contests.“I think we have an excellent chance of seeing that fight, I would say 50-50 it is this year and, if it is not this year, then it’s 95-5 for early 2021.”Joshua recently threw down the gauntlet to Fury, insisting he needs to get the better of him to be considered the No.1 fighter in the division.“Come fight me, you really want to say you’re No 1, come fight me,” he told Sky Sports.“Let’s get it on, I’ve got the rest of the belts so it only makes sense.” Tags: Anthony JoshuaBarry HearnDeontay WilderTyson Furylast_img read more
