Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn believes Tyson Fury is a better boxer than Anthony Joshua, according to NIGERIWATCH Sports.
Fury and Joshua are two of boxing’s biggest names right now, with the British heavyweights constantly compared.
For the time being, the Gypsy King has retired, with Joshua attempting to reclaim his belts against Oleksandr Usyk later this month.
In his professional career, Fury is undefeated, whereas Joshua has lost two of his last three fights.
Joshua has played an important role in Hearn’s success as a promoter, first with Sky Sports and now with DAZN.
However, Hearn admitted on Jaackmaate’s Happy Hour Podcast that Fury was the better boxer of the two heavyweights.
“If you asked me who the best heavyweight in the world is right now, I would say Tyson Fury.” It pains us to say it, but facts are facts. On paper, Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight in the world right now. If Joshua beats Usyk, it’s debatable, but you get to a point, and I think as they get older, it’s easier, and people just go, ‘oh look, who cares?’ Joshua has previously walked in second, and he is one of those who says, “I don’t care, I just want to fight.”
