Eddie Hearn: ‘I’m not very keen on sucking Tyson Fury’s nuts’

Well, we got a response.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Recently, Tyson Fury said that both Anthony Joshua and Eddie Hearn “can suck (his) big, hairy nuts.”

Hearn has responded.

“I’m not very keen on sucking Tyson Fury’s nuts,” Hearn told iFL TV, “but he does make me laugh.”

As for the talks of Deontay Wilder and Fury fighting later this year, Hearn is skeptical.

“He ain’t fighting Wilder in December, because he knows he won’t be ready. And if he loses to Wilder, he loses the AJ fight, he loses everything. But, listen, maybe he just wants to roll the dice, good luck to him.

“I’m just telling you my gut feeling. He didn’t want to fight Tony Bellew, he didn’t want to fight Dillian Whyte, I don’t believe he would fight Wilder until he was ready for that fight, which he’s not. But maybe he’s just had enough, maybe he just said, ‘You know what, get me some money, and I’ll roll the dice and I’m done.’ If so, good luck.”

Asked about recent offers he made for Dillian Whyte or Dereck Chisora to fight Wilder, Hearn said of Wilder, “I just don’t think this geezer wants to fight anyone. I don’t know,” adding, “Either someone’s lying to Deontay Wilder, or he may have lost the plot.”
