Eddie Hearn predicts Anthony Joshua will knock out Tyson Fury after ‘steamrolling’ Kubrat Pulev

eddie hearn predicts anthony joshua will knock out tyson fury after steamrolling kubrat pulev

Eddie Hearn believes Anthony Joshua is primed to demolish Kubrat Pulev and Tyson Fury in his next two fights by knocking both of his rivals out.

Joshua, who currently holds the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight titles, is set to face Pulev in a mandatory defence of his belts later this year, with a fight on December 12 pencilled in.

And despite his return to the ring being delayed by months because of the Covid-19 pandemic, promoter Hearn insists his man is ready to establish himself as the division’s unified champion in style.

‘I actually messaged him and I said: “You’re going to steamroll through these guys,” Hearn told Sky Sports.

‘He just replied in capitals and said: “STEAMROLL!” I think he’d love to [stop Fury]. Yeah. He knows that Fury is an outstanding fighter and it’s going to be very difficult. 

‘But you can ask him for yourself, I believe he has bad intentions in those fights and I believe he expects to. I believe he will knock out Kubrat Pulev and Tyson Fury.’

Joshua is scheduled to take on Fury in two mega-fights in 2021 after the financial terms of the deal were agreed earlier this year.

And with the Gypsy King holding the WBC title – the one belt which has so far eluded AJ during his career – Hearn expects to see an even more aggressive performance from the 30-year-old.  

‘I think he’s ready to start doing a demolition job on these guys,’ Hearn added. 

‘I think he’s shown, coming back from the [Andy] Ruiz Jr fight, that he has the ability to box and move. That’s in the arsenal now. 

‘But he still loves knocking people out – and when you see the drills, when you see the pads and you see that spite in his shots.’

Rafael savages ex-Man United boss Louis van Gaal as ‘one of the WORST people’ he worked with

rafael savages ex man united boss louis van gaal as one of the worst people he worked with

Rafael da Silva insists Louis van Gaal is ‘one of the worst’ managers he has ever worked under as the former Manchester United full-back opened up on the ‘s***’ tenure of the Dutchman at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal was brought in by United as successor to David Moyes but Rafael, who feels no ill-will towards Moyes, was soon to learn he had no future under the Dutchman – and he was even shunned on the first day of training by Van Gaal.

‘I talk bad about some people, like Van Gaal. I don’t like Van Gaal,’ Rafael told the Athletic

‘When they said Van Gaal was the manager, a lot of friends called me. I could not believe it, as a lot of people told me he does not like Brazilians (because of their style of play). They told me, “The first thing he is going to do is take you out.” 

‘Actually, it was the second thing because on the first day, he did not speak to me. On the second day, he said, “You can leave.” I had not even trained and he said that. I could not believe it.’

Rafael, a three-time Premier League champion under Sir Alex Ferguson, felt disrespected. 

He recalled how at every meal time for the first team Van Gaal would interrupt with a speech.

Rafael, who left Manchester United to join Lyon in 2015, revealed that Van Gaal is 'one of the worst people I have worked for' in his professional footballing career to date

It was not welcomed by the squad in the eyes of Rafael and he believes it created a ‘s***’ culture that contributed to their demise in recent seasons. 

‘Every day, after breakfast, after lunch, or if we had dinner together, he would speak to everyone for 15 minutes about training, about what has happened, about everything, about life,’ Rafael explained. 

‘You know when you start to stop listening to what someone is saying, because they speak so much? He wanted to show he could speak. But it was every day! All the time! 

‘You need to wait for everybody to finish their food to leave, which is fine, OK. But then we watched him talk, for 15 minutes, with all due respect, about s***. That is the truth, man. It was s***. 

‘He didn’t care how people are, he just wanted to think about himself — “I am like this, you respect me, you do like I want.’ That’s how he speaks. Players get tired of this. You don’t need to speak all the time. If we talk (about culture), he changed everything.’

Rafael, who joined Istanbul Basaksehir on a free transfer this summer, fought for his place under Van Gaal for one season before accepting his fate and leaving. 

He joined Lyon in 2015 to end his seven-year stint with United. 

Van Gaal would go on to last another season at Old Trafford before he himself was given the boot – despite winning the FA Cup against Crystal Palace at Wembley. It was the only piece of silverware the Dutchman won as United boss.

The style of football and mood of the first team squad had deteriorated and Van Gaal was replaced by Jose Mourinho in the summer of 2016.
