Eddie Hearn has spoken about the Anthony Joshua/Tyson Fury Twitter spat in an interview with iFL TV yesterday.
Speaking with iFL TV’s Kugan Cassius, Hearn was asked why Fury always had to involve him when 'The Gypsy King' starts a spat on Twitter.
He asked the boxing promoter: “Whenever Fury’s involved, I love it that he always involves you. And you always become, what does he call you? A bitch.
“But it went on, and then the response by Anthony Joshua. What do you make of the whole situation?"
After a quick smirk and a chuckle about the whole saga, Heard replied: “I think AJ has seen the tweets and thought I’m going to let him have it. Fury, for me, I can’t see how he can talk about calling people out right now.
“What he had achieved was incredible. And that win will go down as one of the greatest wins in British boxing history.
“But, from there, whether it was his fault or whether it was due to metal illness, or whatever. But if you like, he threw it away, so that’s not AJ’s thought.
“AJ fought for a title, AJ fought Wladimir Klitschko, the biggest fight in British boxing history.
“When you talk about levels, don’t forget that Tyson Fury was meant to box Wladimir Klitschko, they couldn’t sell 12,000 tickets.”

Joshua meets Klitschko for the IBF and WBA super heavyweight world titles in two weeks at Wembley stadium and will be shown live on Sky Sports Box Office on April 29.
The fight has been marketed as the biggest fight in British boxing history, with 90,000 packing into a sold out Wembley.
27-year-old Brit Joshua is in possession of the IBF title. The IBF belt was Tyson Fury’s after he managed to beat Klitschko in 2015. Fury was stripped of it after admitting to drug abuse and mental health issues.
The Gypsy King is still suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control, however, due to a UKAD investigation which is stopping him from returning to the boxing ring.
Fury had tried to use a legal loophole to attain an Irish boxing license, but this has been blocked.News Now - Sport News
