'He's a lot different in person' – Eddie Hearn likes the REAL Tyson Fury and gives rare insight into their relationship

'He's a lot different in person' – Eddie Hearn likes the REAL Tyson Fury and gives rare insight into their relationship

EDDIE HEARN admitted he has 'no problem' with Tyson Fury and claimed the Gypsy King is 'a lot different in person'.

The promoter and WBC heavyweight champion have publicly had their back and fourths in recent times.


But behind the scenes the pair appear to enjoy a more cordial relationship as Hearn claimed Fury even rings him up from time to time.

He told iFL TV: "I get a couple of missed calls when he is out and about.

"I think there was once when he was in London with Chisora recently and I saw him when he was in his hotel in Vegas.

"I actually like Tyson Fury I don't mind him at all. He is a lot different in person than what you see on social media and is actually a very knowledgable boxing head.

"Last time I was with him he actually went through our entire stable, I have no problem with him."

Hearn recently lost the purse bid for Fury's fight with Dillian Whyte, which was won by Frank Warren, who offered £30.6million.

The Matchroom Boxing boss predicted the British grudge match between the 33-year-old's at Wembley Stadium on April 23 may not sell out.

But within 90 minutes, over 85,000 tickets were sold leading to more being requested.

Fury sent Hearn a clip of his prediction to make fun of his rival – but the matchmaker was too busy at Canelo Alvarez's recent press conference.

Hearn said: "I do find it funny that they think of me I am over here busy doing Canelo, when he sent me that video.

"I just replied with that head-to-head of Canelo and said, 'Sorry I am busy at the moment'."
