Eddie Hearn Confident Anthony Joshua Becomes Undisputed Champ

Eddie Hearn has full confidence Anthony Joshua will become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.

Currently, Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk are set to fight for the undisputed title in February in an intriguing matchup. The winner of that fight could then face the winner of Joshua vs. Francis Ngannou.

If that does end up happening, Eddie Hearn does believe Anthony Joshua will beat Francis Ngannou and then defeat the winner of Usyk-Fury.

“One of the big takeaways from [Monday’s] press conference was, again, [Turki Alalshikh’s] vision of the winner of this fight fights the winner of Fury-Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight world championship,” Hearn told TNT Sports (h/t BoxingScene). “I mean, for Ngannou to fight for the undisputed championship in his third fight, it could be a rematch with Fury. You know, he could become undisputed heavyweight world champion. For us, and for AJ, we’ve dreamed about that for so many years.

“I just said to AJ before the face-to-face [with Ngannou], ‘Two wins, you’re undisputed heavyweight world champion.’ And I believe he’s gonna do it, I really do. I know I’m a fan boy, but I believe he’s gonna beat Ngannou, then I believe he’s gonna beat Tyson Fury,” Hearn continued.

According to Eddie Hearn, he thinks Tyson Fury will beat Oleksandr Usyk which will finally allow for Fury and Joshua to fight in a massive bout.

“And, you know, I would just say February the 17th, Oleksandr Usyk, I love you,” Hearn said. “But Tyson Fury, you’ve gotta win this fight. Because AJ, once he goes for Ngannou, we’ve gotta make it happen. So, good luck to both, but it’s just what I see. And, you know, the vision [Alalshikh] has, how exciting is that for boxing, that we’ve got a path and we’ve got this plan for just brilliant fights in the division?”
