Matchroom’s new president was speaking at DAZN’s Boxing Show.
Eddie Hearn thinks he’s convinced Tyson Fury that the fight with Anthony Joshua will continue.
Speaking to the DAZN Boxing Show, Hearn said he met the WBC champion while in the United States.
Fury is in America training for a fight with Joshua – although his father believes he will have to engage in a fight soon to stay alert – and the two met at Hearn’s suggestion.
“I was just in touch with everyone in Vegas, I just had as many meetings as I could. I went up to her pretty hotel suite and we spent a good ten minutes.
“It was good. It was nice to hear it from the horse’s mouth.
The Matchroom promoter explained that Fury seemed confident in the fight after perhaps having reservations.
“I think at the end of the day he’s happy with the position we’re in.
“Everyone has now accepted the site’s offer. We know where we are going. We stick the paperwork on this site agreement.
“He’s comfortable now, because maybe he was a bit of a non-believer that I was going to push this through or that we were going to have the opportunity to get this deal.”
“We still have to move forward, but I think he feels like the fight is on. I think he will want the fight and this is the only fight he will want.
