Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn believes Tyson Fury is better than Anthony Joshua in the boxing ring. PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

Fury and Joshua are two of the biggest names in boxing right now, with the British heavyweights being constantly compared.

The Gypsy King has been retired for the time being, with Joshua looking to regain his titles against Oleksandr Usyk later this month.

Fury is undefeated in his professional career, while Joshua has lost two of his last three fights by comparison.

Joshua was a big part of Hearn’s success as a promoter at both Sky Sports and now joins him at DAZN.

However, talking on Jaackmaate’s Happy Hour Podcast, Hearn admitted that Fury was the better boxer between the two heavyweights.

“If you were to ask me now who is the best heavyweight in the world I would say Tyson Fury. It hurts us to say it, but those are facts. Right now Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight in the world on paper. If Joshua Usyk beats it’s arguable you know but again you get to a point I think as they get older it’s easier I think people just go ‘oh look who cares’ Joshua is earlier got into a position when they run – in second place and he’s actually one of them saying, “I don’t care, I just want to fight.”
