White needs to go out and defeat Povetkin — Ukrainian News

Hearn intends to fight Joshua in 2020, even without spectators.

British promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed in an interview with The Sun that in December plans to organize a fight for world champion in the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight Anthony Joshua (23-1, 21 KO). Hearn said that the fight will take place even if it has to be held in empty stands.

«I hope that by December the moment will come when we will be able to at least half fill the O2 arena. Otherwise, it forms a hole in our budget of 5 million pounds.

But he will fight, he must, otherwise this year he will sit out of the ring. We must return it in 2020. If necessary, then I will organize a fight for him behind closed doors. The numbers will not be so good, but he is ready to do it, «Hearn said

According to the promoter, the main date is December 5, and the opponent should be Kubrat Pulev.

«Right now, our plan is still to fight Pulev, as he is a mandatory contender. But this whole situation introduces some uncertainty, and therefore there is a lot of everything. Joshua wants to fight Fury, but he wants the WBC belt even more, ”added the promoter.
