SUPER-HEAVYWEIGHT

Eddie Hearn had the unenviable task of picking a winner between Ally McCoist and Alan Brazil, should the two Scottish legends ever meet in a boxing ring.

The Matchroom Boxing supremo was on the Breakfast Show to discuss Anthony Joshua’s upcoming clash with Alexander Povetkin, live on talkSPORT.

And while Hearn suggested the tough Russian could be Joshua’s toughest fight to date, he seemed far more relaxed in picking a winner between McCoist and Brazil.

While the super-heavyweight clash is highly unlikely to sell out Wembley stadium, there is only one winner for Hearn.

He told talkSPORT: “You know what, I think Alan would come out of the traps real fast and I think he would stick it on Ally.

“And I think you could be close to a stoppage.

“But then I expect Alan just to gas a little bit, to run out of steam maybe after 25 seconds.

“So the I think, eventually, Ally would come out on top.”

While Joshua will definitely be fighting on Saturday, his promoter is far less certain British rival Tyson Fury will scrap with the undefeated Deontay Wilder, despite squaring off after Fury’s points win over Francesco Pianeta a month ago.
