Hall of fame boxing promoter Frank Warren isn’t looking towards his fighters to do the talking this time, as the 67-year-old has claimed he could beat Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn in a fight.
Both Warren and Hearn have rivalled each other for many years now, with Eddie Hearn boasting the likes of Anthony Joshua at Matchroom Sport while Frank Warren currently represents Tyson Fury.
During an in-depth interview with GQ, he revealed that despite they both represent various elite British stars, they have never actually had a direct conversation with each other.
Nonetheless, Warren and Hearn have never been afraid to fire shots at each other.
They recently had a spat just before Christmas when Hearn organised a heavyweight bout between Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora on the same night as Josh Warrington’s fight with Carl Frampton.
Warren was reportedly infuriated by this decision, as his fight was already announced ahead of Hearn’s card.
When posed the hypothetical question on who would win if they ever had to settle their differences, Warren didn’t hold back.
“I’m giving a lot of age away, I’m giving a lot of height away, a lot of weight away as well,” he told GQ.
“But lock us both in a room and I think I’ll come out on top,” Warren revealed.
In addition to this, Warren responded as to whether a fight between Joshua and Fury could ever actually happen:
“We want to put it together, but they don’t want to put it together.
“They don’t want to meet. They don’t want to talk. I know they do not want this fight.
“They don’t want it. It’s very simple. If you want a fight (to happen) it’s 50/50.”
Tyson Fury shocked the boxing world in recent weeks as he revealed that he didn’t want to take on the re-match against Deontay Wilder, opting for a fight beforehand. While on the other hand, Anthony Joshua will be making his first trip states’ side to take on Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller.
This will be AJ’s first fight in the US and Hearn revealed his excitement for the fight: “AJ has created an incredible ‘Lion’s Den’ atmosphere in the UK and we plan to bring that energy to New York, on a card that will be stacked with British vs American talent.
“When you look at the Heavyweight greats that have graced the renowned ‘Mecca of Boxing’, the names of Ali, Frazier, Marciano and Tyson stand firm and June 1st will be a moment when the world will witness AJ’s turn.”
