After a step aside deal for the Fury vs Usyk fight fell apart at the last hour, Tyson Fury wasted no time and went on Twitter to take a jab at Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte. The Gypsy King retweeted a post shared by ESPN and trashed AJ and Whyte for being greedy.

It is needless to say that Tyson was unhappy with this news as he tried to push for an undisputed heavyweight title fight with Oleksandr Usyk. However, Eddie Hearn who is the promoter of Dillian Whyte does not think that way as he made a bold claim during an interview with IFLTV.
According to the British promoter, Fury could have pushed for this bout as soon as the Ukrainian won the belt. “Fury don’t want to fight Usyk in my opinion. Because he had the opportunity to do it before these discussions and really when it came down to it he really don’t want him. What Fury wants to do is have a little easy one in March.

Hearn also added: That’s what he really wants to do. But now he’s gonna have to fight Dillian Whyte and by the way, after all the kerfuffle he will get beat by Dillian Whyte. He will get knocked out by Dillian Whyte.”
“But the reality is when it came down to it he never wanted to fight Oleksandr Usyk because he could have gone straight into a fight with Oleksandr Usyk. But he didn’t want to go straight into a fight with Oleksandr Usyk. “
Tyson Fury responds to Eddie Hearn’s comments
After Eddie Hearn predicted that Dillian Whyte will knock out Tyson Fury, The Gypsy King along with his brother Tommy and his father John Fury responded to Hearn by posting a video on Twitter.

He captioned this video by taking an indirect swipe at Eddie “There are some silly businessmen out there.” In this video, Fury also slammed Whyte and Joshua by yelling “You idiots, you silly, silly boys”
Both AJ and Whyte have not responded to Fury’s video. As it stands, Tyson Fury will most likely defend his belt against Dillian Whyte. And Joshua will try to reclaim his heavyweight titles against Usyk. Do let us know in the comment section who you think will come out on top in these two heavyweight bouts.
