FORMER world heavyweight titlist Tyson Fury could carve out a route to Anthony Joshua, the reigning, unified heavyweight champion. Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s promoter, would welcome Fury into the Matchroom stable and believes that would offer him the clearest path to some of the biggest fights in the sport.

“There’s been a lot of rumours that he’s going to be joining up with us. That’s not true as far as I know. We’re not close to any kind of agreement,” Hearn told Sky Sports. “We’ve had some conversations, as I think he’s talking to everybody right now.

“We’ll see.”
