Joshua is the future undisputed champion. So says his promoter Hearn


Promoter Eddie Hearn recorded an excellent video interview with Father Barry Hearn, with the padre asking him questions from LADbible TV podcast viewers and the son responding, usually with a touch of British humour.

But about some things, the head of Matchroom Boxing was quite serious.

When asked who would be the next undisputed heavyweight champion, Hearn Jr. answered without a shadow of hesitation that his client Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs). The latter has a re-fight scheduled for July 23 against the holder of the IBF/WBO/WBA belts Oleksandr Usyk.

“Obviously Tyson Fury will fight Dillian Whyte (interview recorded before the fight – ed.), and AJ will come out again against Usyk, and the winners will fight each other,” he told LADbible TV. – I’m betting on Joshua, ironically. I believe that he will beat Usyk in a rematch, and then, on a wave of success, the winner of the fight between Fury and Whyte.

Eddie also expressed regret that Joshua didn’t fight Deontay Wilder.

Hearn on Fury’s present and future: Says, “The world’s best heavyweight.” And the legendary heavyweight believes that “Americans have become small.”
