Tyson Fury given "straightforward road" to Anthony Joshua fight by Eddie Hearn

Tyson Fury given

He will probably need a stoppage against Joshua to win because it's hard to see the three judges scoring close rounds for Parker, the WBO heavyweight world champion, given he is fighting in enemy territory against a holder of two recognised world belts.

"Eddie Hearn, please stop using my name on a daily basis to build Anthony Joshua vs Joseph Parker", he previously tweeted.

Hearn said: "There have been a lot of rumours that he will join up with us".

Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder remain on collision course to decide the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world after Eddie Hearn indicated a bout between the pair is pencilled in for 2018.

"Ultimately the grand prize of Joshua because that is a huge fight". We've had some conversations.

The resolution of Fury's dispute with UK Anti-Doping has opened the door to his return and, as he sheds much of his excess weight, he is seeking a promoter for his comeback.

"Joshua has been doing a good job of polishing my belts, keeping them nice and warm".
