Eddie Hearn: 'Anthony Joshua to crack America in next 12 months'

Eddie Hearn: 'Anthony Joshua to crack America in next 12 months'

Let's give the world an epic fight, one that's going to be in the history books for years and years to come.

"There have been a lot of rumours that he will join up with us".

Anthony Joshua promoter Eddie Hearn is confident a Joshua-Deontay Wilder fight for the undisputed heavyweight title can happen in 2018 if Joshua beats challenger Joseph Parker on March 31. We've had some conversations.

It is little secret that Fury has targeted IBF and WBA champion Joshua, who first must overcome WBO belt-holder Joseph Parker in their unification bout this month. I think he's talking to [other promoters] right now.

"The heavyweight division is buzzing right now and we have two very important fights coming up in Dillian Whyte v Lucas Browne on March 24 at the O2 and Jarrell Miller v Johann Duhaupas on April 28 in NY".

But Fury, whose last fight in November 2015 ended Wladimir Klitschko's near 10-year reign as world heavyweight champion, remains one of Joshua's biggest targets.

It was a tactic which did not go down well with the Englishman but when asked how it felt to be sitting face-to-face with Parker having being called out so strongly, Joshua felt that had become irrelevant.

The resolution of Fury's dispute with UK Anti-Doping has opened the door to his return and, as he sheds much of his excess weight, he is seeking a promoter for his comeback.

Tyson Fury knows the easiest path to Anthony Joshua's doorstep but it wouldn't surprise anyone to see Fury take the road less travelled.

Anthony Joshua is a flawless 20-0 in his career with 20 KOs. Nail him to the canvas, because if you can't do that I'm going to eat you up, eat you all up.
