Eddie Hearn says who he is rooting for in the fight for the title of absolute heavyweight champion. The famous British promoter said that he respects Alexander Usik, however, he will support Tyson Fury.

According to the functionary, he has his own reasons for this, as he wants to arrange at a later time a big fight between the British super-heavyweights.

“Imagine if Joshua knocks out Ngannou and Fury wins the Usyk fight. After that, AJ’s fight with Tyson will be right on a plate – it’s the biggest fight in boxing history.

So I want Fury to win. In fact, I love Usyk and I respect him, but for Anthony’s sake I want Tyson to win this fight. I want Fury to be the undisputed champion,” Hearn told Boxing News.

We remind you that the fight between Usik and Fury will take place on February 17 in the capital of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh. Joshua is scheduled to fight Ngannou on March 8.

It was previously reported that Usik will be preparing for the Fury fight with his sparring partner Ngannou.
