Joshua Promoters….“We Would Seal The Deal Soon” Eddie Hearn confirms Step Aside To Allow Fury vs Usyk

Published

Eddie Hearn reveals that conversations have begun for a possible step aside deal for Anthony Joshua to allow Tyson Fury to face Oleksandr Usyk next for the undisputed heavyweight championship. During an interview on Friday, Hearn casually mentioned that Joshua might need $40 million for the step aside, which obviously will not happen.

 

 

Hearn says that if the offer from Fury’s team makes sense, he’ll present it to former IBF/WBA/WBO champion Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs), but until then, AJ will be facing Usyk next as planned.

 

 

According to Hearn, Joshua just wants the rematch with Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) to avenge his loss to the Ukrainian fighter last September.

 

 

Joshua was beaten soundly by a 12 round unanimous decision in London and came within an eyelash of being knocked out in the final round. The way that Usyk thrashed Joshua, he’ll undoubtedly do the same in the rematch and end what’s left of his career.

 

 

Team Fury would take the fight with Usyk next because they believe their fighter has a better chance of beating him than AJ.

 

 

It’s not because they’re trying to hog the glory from having their fighter Fury be the one that defeats Usyk to become the undisputed heavyweight champion. It’s more of a case of Fury’s team wanting to preserve a future mega-fight with Joshua by taking care of Usyk for him.

 

 

If Joshua stumbles into the rematch with Usyk, blinded by his anger from being humiliated by the Ukrainian last September, he’s likely to lose again but worse.

That second defeat by Joshua will sink the hopes of a mega-fight against Fury because AJ will be seen as a washed-up fighter living off the dreams of his past accomplishments.

 

 

“Yeah, their team has reached out to us,” said Eddie Hearn to Boxing King Media on Tyson Fury’s team had contacted him on a possible step aside deal for Joshua to allow Fury to face Oleksandr Usyk next.

 

 

Suppose Hearn is serious about Joshua needing $40 million to step aside. In that case, he’s going to be stubborn about it and take the rematch with Usyk, oblivious to what he’s about to do to his career. Being obstinate isn’t going to help Joshua and Hearn.
