Tyson Fury taunts Eddie Hearn with ‘wish you were here’ message after comments comparing his training to Anthony Joshua’s
Tyson Fury has made light of Eddie Hearn’s recent comments comparing his current training camp to Anthony Joshua’s.
As the two sides work to finalise the site deal for their undisputed fight in August, comments are already flying back-and-forth in the media.
Hearn joined talkSPORT last week and took aim at Fury.
The ‘Gypsy King’ has flown out to Las Vegas to start his training camp, while AJ remains home in London, preparing at his old amateur club – Finchley ABC.
Hearn told White and Jordan: “I just think when I look at those two together – you’ve got one guy working behind closed doors in Finchley with a dream to become undisputed champion.
“And then you’ve got another bloke who’s swanning around in a suite at the encore in Las Vegas, wearing terrible Versace shirts, screaming on social media all day calling everyone a dosser.”
Fury initially replied with a video telling Hearn: “Eddie, you’re talking about me, living in the hotel in Vegas, wearing the Versace shirts.
“Yes, I’m absolutely guilty Eddie, I’m over here in my 6000 sq ft hotel room in Versace every single day.
“If you keep sucking Canelo off you’ll be able to get a couple of these shirts yourself mate.
“Or, if you want, I can borrow you a couple, don’t worry about it. And maybe give you a little bit of swag too.”
Now, Fury has taunted Hearn further.
In his latest video, he and his trainer SugarHill Steward stood together smiling while delivering a message for AJ’s promoter.
Fury said: “Here we are, two bosses on the casino floor, Versace’d up, breakfast by the pool, living the dream.
“Eddie, wish you could be here, but you’re not.”
As things stand, progress is being made towards finally getting the reported $150million+ Saudi Arabia site deal over the line.
Fury’s UK co-promoter Frank Warren told SecondsOut on Friday night: “Yeah, we’ve had something come through from the other side – a contract which we’re all reviewing.
“A proposal I should say, a proposed contract which we’re reviewing.
“Obviously we’ll look at it and hopefully we can agree terms, that’s what we all want.
“It’s not been about being negative, you can only respond to an offer when you’ve got an offer and try and get it over the line.
“We’re working hard, everybody’s working hard to get this on and fingers crossed we will get it over the line.”
Hearn added to iFL TV on Saturday: “Frank said they’ve now received the contract and they’re reviewing it, true story.
“We got the contract through last night from the Middle East.
“Obviously they’ve gotta have a look at it and so have we. We’re in a great position, I keep telling people…
“Everybody is on board. Yes, Frank Warren was correct and thank you Frank for that positivity, genuinely…
“I want to announce next week.”
