Eddie Hearn ‘confident’ about Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua despite John Fury doubts

"We're in a good place. We're out there grafting away every day to get this done."

Eddie Hearn says he's 'confident as ever' about Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua's world title clash going ahead, despite John Fury's recent comments.

The Matchroom promoter also said 'multiple deals' would be put on the table this weekend, with venues around the world under consideration.

Last month, Fury Snr cast doubt on the heavyweight unification bout.

Speaking to BT Sport, he said: "What have they signed? They've signed nothing in my eyes. They've got no date, no venue, no nothing.

"What does it mean if you can't get a date and a venue? What does it mean if no one is willing to put up the money?

"That's the position and I don't think they can get it together."

Responding to the 56-year-old's comments, Hearn told Sky Sports: "At the end of this week both fighters and the teams will be presented with all the offers and options on the table. There will be multiple ones.

"We're in a good place. I saw John Fury's comments. It's almost like they don't really want the fight. I'd like them to talk it up rather than talk it down.

"We're quite aware that there has been a global pandemic. We're aware that it's not easy, but we're out there grafting away every day to get this done."

A two-fight deal is widely expected to be announced, which will crown the division's undisputed king.

Joshua holds the WBA, IBF and WBO belts, while Fury is the WBC champion.

Hearn continued: "A little bit of support would be nice, John and Tyson, thank you very much.

"There will be around three or four offers presented to both camps this weekend. Then it's over to them and the teams to discuss which one we want to take - the dates of those fights.

"It's everything we're working towards and I'm as confident as ever that it gets done."

The highly-anticipated deal will see two of the biggest sporting icons finally meet in the ring. Between them, they have beaten the likes of Wladimir Klitschko, Deontay Wilder and Alexander Povetkin.

But only one can be crowned as the true heavyweight king of our era.
