Tyson Fury’s record branded "laughable" compared to Anthony Joshua
Tyson Fury's record is "laughable" compared to his fellow world champion Anthony Joshua.
That is the view of Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn ahead of a potential unification clash between the Brits next year.
Fury won his world title by stopping Deontay Wilder early this year – but the American joined Wladimir Klitschko as the only world class opponent on his resume.
Fury had been pencilled in to make his first defence against Agit Kabayel but that fight has now been postponed.
And Hearn poured scorn on the 32-year-old's list of opponents thus far.
"It makes me laugh when people look at AJ's resume," Hearn told Sky Sports . "Maybe I'm seeing something other people don't?
"I mean Dillian Whyte, Dominic Breazeale, Wladimir Klitschko, Joseph Parker, Alexander Povetkin, Carlos Takam previously that I missed out, Andy Ruiz, Kubrat Pulev.
"These are consecutive fights. You don't see Tom Schwarz, Otto Wallin, Sefer Serferi. Who is the other geezer? I can't even remember his name, the Italian bloke? And then Agit Kabayel.
"I mean it's laughable when you compare the two resumes, but it's in black and white for everyone to see.
"AJ has consistently proved that he will fight all-comers – mandatory challengers, unified champions, future hall of famers.
"Anybody, and now he's doing it again, and that's why when you talk about [Oleksandr] Usyk, he will fight Usyk no problems at all, but he wants to fight Tyson Fury.
"He wants to prove he's the best heavyweight in the world and undisputed or not, we will do everything we can to make sure it is. Not one person can have any doubt after that fight, who the baddest man on the planet is."
Joshua will defend his three world titles against Kubrat Pulev on December 12.
