Eddie Hearn calls for Tyson Fury to attend Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev and even invites him over for Sunday roast

TYSON FURY has been invited to watch ringside as Anthony Joshua defends his world title against Kubrat Pulev next weekend.

And boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has even offered the Gypsy King a spot at his dining table for 'a Sunday roast' the day after.

Should AJ get past teak-tough Bulgarian veteran Pulev, it could set the wheels in motion to thrash out terms for an undisputed clash against Fury.

And Matchroom boss Hearn thinks it wouldn't be a bad idea for Fury to scout out the opposition at first hand on December 12.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Hearn said: "I think that he should be coming.

"If he wants to fight Anthony Joshua, it's not a case of calling him out, it's called doing his research and building the fight.

"Tyson Fury is more than welcome to come down. I only live 45 minutes away from Wembley.

"He can come around on Sunday afternoon for a roast as well, if he wants and a cuppa."

Despite Fury announcing back in March that two fights against Joshua had been 'agreed', there hasn't been any developments on this.

And Joshua seems sceptical that the Battle of Britain will happen next year.

Speaking to ESPN the 31-year-old said: "When I look at Fury, great talent, but I don't know whether he's coming or going.

"He announced he was going to fight me, then the deal didn't get signed and we're not fighting.

"I don't know what will happen in 2021 but if I was to bet all my money on it I would say Usyk because he is with Matchroom."

While the Watford champ has his doubts, he is clearly desperate for the fight to happen in 2021.

And he told exclusively told SunSport that he believes fighting Fury can lift the spirits of the nation after the coronavirus pandemic.

Joshua has even said he would be prepared to take a PAY CUT to get the deal over the line.

He has already missed out on an £8million payday when he fights Pulev at Wembley Arena in front of just 1,000 fans.
