Hearn confirms Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury could come face to face at Pulev fight with Gypsy King ringside

MEET IN THE MIDDLE

ANTHONY JOSHUA and Tyson Fury could come face to face when AJ fights Kubrat Pulev, according to Eddie Hearn.

Joshua's promoter Hearn says the British heavyweight icons could meet with the Gypsy King set to be ringside for AJ's December 12 clash with the Bulgarian.

Joshua, 31, is fighting IBF challenger Pulev at London's O2 Arena next month.

And Fury, 32, could be sat just yards away watching the action, according to TalkSPORT.

Joshua has already verbally agreed to a double header to face the Gypsy King for next year.

But the London 2012 gold medallist is first putting his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles on the line against Pulev.

The pair are not believed to have seen in each other in the flesh since a chance meeting in Marbella in July.

The photo showed Fury parked up in his car with Joshua stood by the roadside chatting to him.

And Fury revealed afterwards he urged the Londoner not to lose to Pulev.

Yesterday, Lennox Lewis also issued a word of caution to AJ.

Lion shared his belief that Fury will emerge victorious over his fellow Brit when they finally meet in the ring in 2021.

As quoted by the Daily Mail, he said: "The Fury and Joshua fight, you have got two big guys and they can punch and they can box.

"You’ve got Fury, he is a switch hitter and he is going into the fight with a lot more dangerous things to watch out for - the fact that he can punch with left hand, with his right.

"He is a slugger as well, the way he went after Deontay [Wilder], nobody expected that.

"He said what he is going to do and he did it. I like guys who box with confidence like that."

Mike Tyson says he's happy he's not knocked out and Roy Jones says everything hurt as it made contact with Tyson after their fight
