Eddie Hearn Speaks on Fury-Usyk: AJ is Next!

Eddie Hearn's latest comments could lead to a heavyweight boxing blockbuster. Matchroom Boxing founder Eddie Hearn has publicly supported Tyson Fury's win over Oleksandr Usyk in the February 17 undisputed heavyweight championship fight. Hearn's favouritism is a strategic business move to set up a massive Fury-Joshua fight later this year.

Tyson Fury, the undefeated WBC champion with 34 wins, no losses, and one draw, including 24 knockouts, faces IBF, WBA, and WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk in a crucial bout. Hearn clearly wants Fury to win. He sees a Fury-Joshua fight as a huge financial opportunity and an easier way for Joshua to reclaim heavyweight supremacy.

Hearn told TNT Sports about his bluntness: He said, “February 17, Oleksandr Usyk, I love you, but Tyson Fury, you’ve got to win this fight.” “We must do it. Good luck, both. How exciting for boxing that we have this path and plan for the biggest fights in this division.” He expressed enthusiasm for the fight, which could lead to one of the most significant heavyweight fights in recent history.

Fury vs. Usyk is a battle of champions, styles, and strengths. Usyk, with a perfect 22 wins and no losses, including 14 knockouts, is known for his mobility, quickness, and technical skill, while Fury is known for his size, strength, and unconventional fighting style. This makes the fight exciting and unpredictable.

Gareth A. Davies, a respected boxing journalist, told Pro Boxing Fans, “A good big un always beats a good little un, they always say.” This fight represents the classic size-skill battle; this adage suggests it.

The ultimate prize for Hearn is beyond February 17th. A Fury win sets the stage for a Joshua-Fury fight, which could earn Joshua financial rewards and reclaim his heavyweight boxing title. The boxing world eagerly awaits Fury vs. Usyk, which could determine the future of the heavyweight division.
