Eddie Hearn: “I don’t believe Fury, he should beat Usyk and Joshua”


British WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KO’s) hasn’t done enough to go down in history as one of the greatest in the category, but he could do so with one or at most two successful duel.

So says promoter Eddie Hearn, who doesn’t believe Fury really retired from boxing for good after defeating Dillian Whyte on April 23rd.

“I don’t believe anything he says. Although this does not negate the fact that he is also capable of doing anything. In the end, everything depends only on him,” Hearn emphasized. – If he wants to retire from boxing – good luck. It’s still a very tough sport. He made a lot of money, became a world champion, and if he is happy to do this, well, good luck to him. I just feel like the biggest fights, the legacy fights, are still ahead of him.”

Fury is one of the top 5 heavyweights in boxing history? Atlas opinion

“There is a lot of talk these days about Fury being the greatest heavyweight of his generation, better than Lennox Lewis and other fighters of the past. In my opinion, he doesn’t have the resume to prove it, but he could be if he beats both Joshua and Usyk or the winner of their rematch.”

“However, it all comes down to how much he wants it himself? Perhaps he no longer has the desire. I would like Fury to fight both Joshua and Usyk because that would be cool for boxing. But he may have really had his fill of boxing. Although I don’t believe him.”

Meanwhile, Tyson Fury beat Usyk in the ESPN pound.
