Boxing promoter and Matchroom Sport MD Eddie Hearn has heated up things between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, the two heavyweight icons by claiming that the former’s records are laughable in comparison with the latter.

Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua are undoubtedly two of the biggest names in the history of boxing and the greatest heavyweight pugilists of all time and a fight between the two legends has been one of the biggest desires of the global boxing fandom.

On one hand, ‘The Gypsy King’ (30-0, 21 KOs) is a two-time heavyweight world champion and currently holds the WBC belt, with previous unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring, and lineal title holds. The Briton is also the only heavyweight in history to have won  WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, WBO, and The Ring magazine titles.

On the other hand, Fury’s compatriot Anthony Joshua (23-1, 21 KOs) is a two-time unified heavyweight champion and currently holds the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles. He is also a 2012 Summer Olympics gold medallist.

There is a split in the global boxing scene when picking the better one between the two, with both Fury and AJ’s fans taking stances as why their con sits at the throne of the heavyweight division at present. Now, Eddie Hearn has a say in the matter.

It’s laughable to compare the two resumes: Eddie Hearn between Fury and Joshua

Be that as it may, Eddie Hearn’s recent comments regarding the boxers has definitely spiced things up. The Matchroom MD, who is Joshua’s promoter, asserts that he has fought tougher opponents in his career compared to Fury, the latter whom Hearn claims has a ‘laughable’ resume.

“It makes me laugh when people look at AJ’s resume,” Hearn said in an interview with Sky Sports, “Maybe I’m seeing something other people don’t?”

Its no doubt that AJ has faced some of the toughest challenges in the ring, from Whyte to Klitschko as well as Ruiz and is now gearing up to take on Kubrat Pulev on 12th December at the O2 Arena.

“I mean Dillian Whyte, Dominic Breazeale, Wladimir Klitschko, Joseph Parker, Alexander Povetkin, Carlos Takam previously that I missed out, Andy Ruiz, Kubrat Pulev,” Hearn added.

Moving on about Fury, who just postponed his Agit Kabayel title defense to 2021, Hearn compared the opponents he has faced in the ring, claiming them ‘laughable’ compared to Joshua’s previous fights.

“These are consecutive fights. You don’t see Tom Schwarz, Otto Wallin, Sefer Serferi. Who is the other geezer? I can’t even remember his name, the Italian bloke? And then Agit Kabayel,” Hearn went on, “I mean it’s laughable when you compare the two resumes, but it’s in black and white for everyone to see.”
