Anthony Joshua has 'a confidence issue', according to Tyson Fury

Anthony Joshua has 'a confidence issue', according to Tyson Fury”

Hearn also indicated that WBO super-middleweight world champion Billy Joe Saunders will learn next week if he has landed a unification fight with Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez, who holds the WBA and WBC belts.

"Even the great Mohammed Alli struggled in some of his title defence", the former boxer recalled, adding, "as things appear now, I believe this is the best time for Joshua to take on Fury".

"I don't think he's as good as people crack him up to be, or he doesn't believe he is, in his own self".

Usyk has hinted in the past that he would be willing to delay his title shot to allow boxing fans the opportunity to watch two of best heavyweights of the last decade go head-to-head.

Fury believes that he can take advantage of these confidence issues and get the better of Joshua.

With the fighters" financial split agreed at 50-50, and the victor then slated to receive 60-40 for the rematch, Hearn is "optimistic' that the remaining details of the deal, including the location and broadcasting arrangements, can be tied up in the next two weeks.

A percentage split of the money the fight could generate is said to be agreed between the pair. "The fight has been brewing for a long time".

"There's some stuff you'd expect and again, I know everyone wants it in the United Kingdom but at the moment they aren't even allowing boxing so we've got a long way to go".

Fury insists that the fight must take place earlier rather than later and contrasts the fight with the one between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao that eventually took place in 2015. It maybe should have happened four or five years earlier.

In the aftermath of Joshua's December win over Pulev, his promoter, Eddie Hearn, said the finer details over a Joshua-Fury fight could be sorted in a couple of days.

"So hopefully we get to go one-on-one combat with not only the two best heavyweights out there but two heavyweights who are in their prime and not past it".

Fury, 32, said now was the time for Joshua to back up his words by finally fighting him. It is the night boxing longs for in 2021 but there are problems to solve before punches can be thrown.
