eddie hearn puzzled by tyson fury's rejection of anthony joshua's lucrative offer for all-british showdown

Eddie Hearn has claimed that Tyson Fury is turning down the opportunity to fight Anthony Joshua, despite a massive financial offer for a British bout. Hearn, the promoter for Joshua, revealed that he had tabled a significant sum of money to secure the highly anticipated fight between the two British heavyweight champions.

Hearn expressed his frustration with Fury’s decision, stating that he believes the fight would be the biggest in British boxing history. He emphasized that the financial offer made to Fury was substantial and would have been a career-high payday for the undefeated heavyweight.

The potential clash between Joshua and Fury has been a topic of great interest among boxing fans, with both fighters holding multiple world titles in the heavyweight division. Many have considered it to be a dream matchup that could determine the undisputed heavyweight champion.

Despite the financial incentive, Fury has chosen to pursue other options for his next fight. He recently signed a two-fight deal with Deontay Wilder, whom he defeated in their rematch last year. The trilogy fight between Fury and Wilder is scheduled to take place on July 24th, 2021.

Hearn expressed his disappointment with Fury’s decision, but acknowledged that the heavyweight division is unpredictable and subject to constant changes. He remains hopeful that a fight between Joshua and Fury can still be arranged in the future.
