Tyson Fury has never shied away from taking on the challenge of facing the very best.
This week, he came under criticism from Barry Hearn for facing Tom Schwarz on June 15 in Las Vegas.
Fury went to Wladimir Klitschko’s backyard to beat him and end his reign as world heavyweight champion.
Fury also faced WBC title holder Deontay Wilder not long after his return.
Hearn’s criticism is a bit rich considering we are still waiting for Anthony Joshua to take on the American.
Now we have to listen to all the rubbish about Fury and Wilder not wanting to fight Joshua when it was Hearn who went on national radio stating he doesn’t care if those clashes never happen.
I’m also not sure what he was talking about earlier this week during a press conference on Sky Sports when he mentioned promoters and slavery in boxing – he must have been talking about himself.
A lot of boxers were angry about his comments – including Lennox Lewis.
Meanwhile, Joshua has to face Andy Ruiz Jnr on June 1 after Jarrell Miller’s drug test shame.
I feel their pain on the late change but Joshua is mixing it with these guys because he hasn’t stepped up to fight Fury or Wilder yet.
On the subject of heavyweights, Daniel Dubois looked sensational in stopping Richard Lartey last weekend.
The Ghana fighter came to win and traded with Dubois but my man showed his chin is as solid as his own punches.
We’ll be announcing a big heavyweight show for July 13 at the O2 Arena next week featuring Joe Joyce, Nathan Gorman and Daniel Dubois.
