Joshua Against Fury Could Take Priority Over Pulev Fight- Hearn
Anthony Joshua’s undisputed world title fight with Tyson Fury could “start taking priority” over his IBF mandatory clash with Kubrat Pulev, says promoter Eddie Hearn.
Britain’s unified heavyweight champion is scheduled to defend his titles against Pulev at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20, with Hearn still hopeful that this confirmed fight date will go ahead.
But the Matchroom Boxing boss has a contingency plan due to the coronavirus pandemic and refused to rule out a blockbuster battle in 2020 between Joshua and Fury, who is also trying to fit a third fight with Deontay Wilder into his schedule.
Hearn told Sky Sports: “Well I think, all of a sudden, does the Joshua-Fury fight start taking priority, maybe over a Pulev fight, if the Pulev fight extends beyond the summer. There’s so much that could happen right now.
“I mean anything is possible, but contractually Deontay Wilder is going to want his fight next, whether that’s in July or whether there’s a force majeure that takes that to October, November wherever.
“Right now, for us, we’re fighting Kubrat Pulev, June 20, and it could be July 25, but everything is uncertain at the moment, whilst the country and the world tries to contain this pandemic.”
