Hearn revealed Fury’s team had “reached out” to request that Joshua step aside.

Speaking about the cost to persuade Joshua to walk away, Hearn said: “Seven figures? A million?

If there’s a route and an offer and it makes sense then we’ll see but right now, it’s just conversations between the camps.” he added
