Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury could fight twice in 2021, according to Eddie Hearn.
A recent media report mentioned that Wilder would be willing to not fight, if he is first in line for a crack at the winner.
While Hearn says Joshua has “no problem” signing a deal to face Fury, he explained why the fight is not expected to happen before the end of this year.
“I had a conversation saying, ‘Wilder is not stepping aside, we will take care of that fight, you take care of the Pulev fight, but let’s get a deal done for 2021,'” Hearn told Sky Sports.
Hearn also confirmed that any agreement is likely to include a rematch clause, setting up the potential for a hugely lucrative doubleheader between Joshua and Fury next year.
“It would probably be a two-fight deal, Any deal between Fury and AJ, you run it twice. “
