‘I’ve already spoken to AJ and he wants to go into this fight next,’ Hearn said on TalkSport.
‘We have to make this fight happen. We will never, ever get the chance for two Brits to fight for an undisputed heavyweight world championship. ‘I promise you we will do everything we can to make this fight. It has to happen.’
‘He loves the Tyson fight, he has zero fear of fighting Tyson Fury,’ Hearn continued.
‘Tyson has been through everything already and he wants to be undisputed and this is the chance for our sport to have one of those legacy moments that we will never get the opportunity to have again.
‘I heard out of his camp he was going to be aggressive and go for it and I thought it was absolute madness and it ended up being genius from him and his team.
‘Just a wonderful performance. What a time for British boxing – an incredible night. I felt like he could school him but I didn’t think he could school him and beat him up, and he did that.’ Hearn concluded. (H/T – Metro.co.uk)
