Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury can be agreed in & # 39 two minutes & # 39; says Eddie Hearn | Boxing News

The rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury is finally upon us, and both camps are finishing up their final preparations for the imminent showdown next Saturday night, February 22nd, from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada! Fury has more to his arsenal so that's why I'm leaning to him.

"Unfortunately, I think Wilder is going to win the fight".

But Wilder is sceptical that the self-styled "Gypsy King" plans to go on the attack, and believes that he has already planted doubt in Fury's mind after sending him to the canvas with a crushing combination in the 12th round last time. He is underestimated with his punching power that makes him risky. "If you underestimate someone, he makes it risky because you don't respect him until they hit you".

"Fury is a really good fighter, up to a point, so he has the advantage. If you can avoid that, you have the beating of him". However, the undefeated 34-year-old has irked Hearn by criticising Joshua's win over Andy Ruiz, playing down talks of a meeting between the pair and claiming that AJ is "out of the picture". "I know I will eventually have it in my hands". "I want to keep him for several years".

"Trust me, a different beast has woken up".

The final press conference for "Wilder vs. Fury 2" will air live on Wednesday, February 19th, at 4:30 PM ET on FOX Sports 1 and ESPN2, which will be hosted once again by Kate Abdo.

Asked about his rivals' rematch, Joshua said: "Wilder coming through is better because [a fight with me] is what people have been eagerly anticipating".

And he had stern words for Joshua's team, including promoter Eddie Hearn, for their approach to setting up big fights that focuses too much on business. "That's disconcerting", Hearn said. If anybody should be changing up anything, you would think it would be me, since he says he beat me by such a wide margin. "It's a two-minute call with MTK and Bob Arum, deal done".

He accused his new client of "not stepping on the gas" in the first fight, and has suggested that Fury will not be making the same mistake twice.

"The victor of that fight will be under such pressure to fight Joshua that, this time, it will be inevitable".

"The curve is in terms of; those guys are preparing for their (third fight) and we have an opportunity in place that we can present to the victor to get them away from (a third fight)", Hearn explained.

Since then, however, the two have appeared to be nowhere near agreeing on a fight.

England's Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs) has surprised Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) by changing trainers, from Ben Davison to Javan Steward.
