The promoter wants AJ’s next opponent wrapped up within two weeks ahead of a possible April showdown
Eddie Hearn has revealed an offer has now been made to Tyson Fury for a fight with Anthony Joshua on April 13 at Wembley Stadium.
The unified heavyweight world champion’s promoter has also submitted proposals to Deontay Wilder and Dillian Whyte and says any one of them can take the fight with Joshua if they want it.
“Well, to say Deontay Wilder’s camp has gone quiet, that’s saying it lightly,” Hearn explained to Sky Sports.
“If they wanted the fight they would talk to me, they’re not even talking to us. We’ve made offers, percentage splits, everything we can do to try and make that fight.
“I think right now there’s more chance of fighting Tyson Fury. There’s a man that knows he can have this fight if he wants it.
“I’ve spoken to him. He knows if he wants to fight Joshua, it can happen April 13. We’ve probably got about ten days to two weeks before we have to officially pull the trigger.”
Dillian Whyte exclusively told talkSPORT he had received an offer to face Anthony Joshua last week, but branded it “utterly ridiculous” and stated he believed they did not want the fight.
As Hearn represents both men, he is in a difficult position in negotiations, but laid out the potential challenger’s situation after a meeting with him on Monday.
“Dillian, I was with him this morning,” the promoter continued, “He wants a great deal to fight Joshua. He’s been through a hard road to get to number one.
“He can wait and become mandatory at some point, but if Dillian Whyte wants to fight for the world heavyweight title on April 13, there is the opportunity for him to do so, right now.”
To conclude, Eddie Hearn stated that all three of Joshua’s main heavyweight rivals can fight him on April 13 at Wembley.
“Wilder, Fury and Whyte, they’ve all had offers, they could all sign now, today, and get the fight, but do they want it?
“The offers, some have been made, some are about to be improved, it’s put up or shut up time.”
