We are inching closer and closer to the much anticipated Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev fight on the 12th of December, at the Wembley Arena, London. A win here for Anthony Joshua will undoubtedly set him up with Tyson Fury next. And, hence, promoter Eddie Hearn wants “The Gypsy King” to be one among the 1000 spectators at the Wembley Arena, come Saturday.

Speaking of this to Sky Sports, Eddie Hearn wanted Tyson Fury to attend the fight to do his research about his next potential opponent, as the match between the two Brits is imminent.

“It’s called doing his research and building the fight” – Eddie Hearn

Eddie Hearn was quoted as saying, “I think that he should be coming. If he wants to fight Anthony Joshua, it’s not a case of calling him out, it’s called doing his research and building the fight. Tyson Fury is more than welcome to come down. I only live 45 minutes away from Wembley. He can come around on Sunday afternoon for a roast as well, if he wants and a cuppa. [via Sky Sports]

“We just want to get that fight made. But first things first, we’ve seen it before at Madison Square Garden with Andy Ruiz when we were talking about the Wilder fight. This is it. This is the last hurdle, Kubrat Pulev, December 12. He knows the pressure is on. He knows that all he has to do is beat Kubrat Pulev on December 12, and the Fury fight, the undisputed fight will present itself.” [via Sky Sports]

Should Tyson Fury accept Eddie Hearn’s invitation? Can Anthony Joshua beat Pulev and set up a blockbuster clash with Tyson Fury?
