PROMOTER Eddie Hearn does not take kindly to Lennox Lewis’ commentary on Anthony Joshua’s career choices.

Joshua has unified three major world heavyweight titles, in 22 pro contests. He holds the WBO, WBA and IBF belts and is currently waiting to decide his next move, with Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte and Jarrell Miller in the frame for a shot at the popular Englishman.

Lewis was the last undisputed heavyweight champion and has been urging Joshua to secure showdowns with Wilder or Fury.
