Eddie Hearn tweets his respect for Tyson Fury after WBC title bout

Oleksandr Usyk v Tony Bellew - Cruiserweight World Title Fight

Eddie Hearn has tweeted his reaction to the Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder fight in LA this Sunday morning, giving his opinion on the Gypsy King and the judging of the score.

Anthony Joshua’s mentor and promoter has been trying to tie up a fight between AJ and Wilder for a little while now, with both camps claiming they want the fight.

Attention then turned to the winner of the Wilder vs Fury fight and whether they would face AJ next year.

Hearn once again reaffirmed his stance that he believed Joshua would face Wilder in April next year.

Hearn has often been criticised for not showing the respect to Tyson Fury and fans claim that he and fellow British heavyweight and multiple champion Anthony Joshua are avoiding fighting the Gypsy King.

But, in a number of tweets this morning, Anthony Joshua’s promoter has outlined his respect for Fury for taking the fight, and even said he believed Fury was winning.

Hearn also commented on the scoring of the fight, and questioned how one judge could have scored it 115-111 in favour of Wilder, when replying to a tweet from Andre Ward.

“Big respect for Fury to get up there - got him winning this,” Hearn tweeted in direct reference to the Gypsy King getting up after his knockdown.

Hearn then turned his attention to a tweet from former professional Andre Ward, after Ward aimed a tweet at Hearn after the fight ended in a draw.

“Wait for it, Eddie Hearn is going to have a lot to say after this 😂😂😂,” the retired 34-year-old tweeted.

Hearn managed to reply to Ward in a controlled manner as to not get sucked into a war of words, and simply replied with his main thoughts on the fight.

“The main thing I’ve got to say is how can a judge score that 115-111 to Wilder!” Hearn replied.

It seems as though Eddie Hearn is trying to keep things civil between the two camps, as thoughts now turn to what’s next for both Wilder and Fury.

Inevitably, Anthony Joshua’s name has already been mentioned, but the likelihood is that 'Wilder vs Fury: The Rematch' will take place before any potential unification bout with AJ will even be discussed.
