Eddie Hearn describes Tyson Fury email leak as classless

Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed his opinion on Tyson Fury tweeting a screenshot of a private email to his 952,000 followers.

Fury leaked the email in response to comments from Hearn in the weeks before, where he openly described Fury as boring, saying: “I don’t want to be disrespectful, but Tyson Fury is the most unentertaining fighter I’ve ever seen.

“He’s never been in a good fight in his whole career, apart from (Steve) Cunningham, where he got knocked down."

Fury initially hit back with a tweet reading: “There is a certain daddy’s boy in boxing. Who offered me millions of pounds to sign a contract with him! Because he didn’t get GK he now says I’m the worst fighter he as ever seen! Bitter little spoiled punk, #sausage.”

As it turns out, Fury was not finished responding to Hearn's comments, having posted the email on his Twitter two weeks later.

Despite this, Hearn seemed relatively calm about the situation when he spoke to iFL TV, appearing more bemused as to why Fury blocked him.

"Class isn't really something that plays into his mind.

"I'm just disappointed that he blocked me! He's been giving me stick for three years on social media, I've never bitten once, and I just said that he's the most boring fighter I've ever seen and he blocked me."

Hearn later confirmed the email was real and that he intended on offering Fury fights with Tony Bellew and Dillian Whyte, before going on to criticise the fighter for the leak.

"You don't put out an email that's private and confidential, I could try and sue him. I'm not that way, but there's other promoters that would be sending him legal letters.

"At the end of the day he can say what he wants, but he shouldn't sulk and block me on Twitter because I said something he didn't like, otherwise I'd have blocked him years ago."

Fury will now look to forget any grudges with Hearn as he gets set to face Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles on December 1 for the WBC title.
