Eddie Hearn has questioned whether a rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will actually go ahead and has mocked the lack of hype surrounding the Gypsy Kings next bout.

Fury takes on Otto Wallin in Las Vegas next weekend, which is expected to be his final outing before a long-awaited rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Wilder in February 2020.

But the Bronze Bomber has said recently that he would want Fury to step aside so he can unify the division against the winner of Andy Ruiz v Anthony Joshua, and AJs promoter isnt sure the fight will go ahead.

ESPN and Bob Arum are having an absolute stinker because this fight is non-existent. Non-existent. There will be no-one in the arena, other than complimentary tickets.

I mean, Furys a genius, because hes done this big deal where hes just having all these easy fights.

But his profile is going like that [downhill] because no-one even knows hes fighting.
