Anthony Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, has called Tyson Fury’s proposed next clash against German Tom Schwarz a ‘terrible fight’, Boxing Scene report.
Fury made a return to the ring after almost three years away from the sport last summer, defeating Sefer Seferi and Francesco Pianeta, which set up a huge clash with WBC champion Deontay Wilder.
Self-proclaimed ‘Gypsy King’ Fury almost capped a remarkable comeback with a victory against Wilder in Los Angeles, however, the Brit was floored twice in the final stages, with the bout resulting in a split decision draw.
The pair were thought to be facing off again this year, however, Wilder called off a proposed rematch and recently announced his next fight against fellow American, Dominic Breazeale.
And with Joshua preparing for his stateside debut against Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller in June, Fury has been left to find a new opponent for the summer.
German Schwarz is the man who will face Fury next, however, Joshua’s promoter Hearn is far from impressed with Fury’s choice.
When asked about Fury’s next fight, Hearn said:
It’s a terrible fight when you go from rematching Deontay Wilder to then fighting Tom Schwartz.
I have to admire Tyson Fury. If he’s getting paid the type of money he’s reportedly getting paid to fight Tom Schwarz, congratulations.
