Two successful boxing bouts are underway between heavyweights Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, and shots are already fired from both camps.
According to Eddie Hearn, the conditions are already in place for the British heavyweight world champions to compete.
Although no contracts have been signed, Hearn expects WBA, IBF and WBO belt holder Joshua to face WBC champion Fury to determine the undisputed king of the heavyweight scene in 2021.
World heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua has now revealed he wants to smash the head of WBC belt holder Tyson Fury.
“I have a lot of respect for the man, he’s a good family man and a good fighter, but on the other hand, I want to break his head,” Joshua said while appearing on Sky One’s A League of Their own.
“First six rounds, I think, well I know I’m going to take him out then.”
Regardless of how Joshua feels, he would have to wait until he deals with Kubrat Pulev while Fury gets a trilogy with Deontay Wilder.
Meanwhile, fellow British boxer Dillian Whyte will need a rematch with Alexander Povetkin before he can face the winner between Fury and Wilder.
Whyte was eliminated by Povetkin last week.
