Talks remain on-going for a fight which is pencilled in for December with Cardiff’s Principality Stadium the front-runner to stage the Battle of Britain. 

But promoter Hearn says Fury’s unpredictable nature means anything is possible.

He said: ”I don’t know whether this guy is for real because you just never do.

“But AJ said ‘well, one I want the fight and two if he’s not for real then let’s find out.’ 

“So I think from Anthony’s point of view, he’s played it great. 

“If the contract is what they said it will be, we’re fighting. 

“And if Fury chooses not to fight, AJ looks like he’s accepted the fight but it didn’t come off.

“He does want the fight and he just felt that he doesn’t think he will get the fight again if he doesn’t accept it now.”

Hearn then added: “We’ve accepted the terms in principle, there’s not a lot more to go in the agreement.

“The broadcasters – DAZN and BT, have got to get together and make that happen, which they’re all saying, the basis of sharing the pay per view is not a problem.

“So I actually think that we’ll be okay. I think it’s just with Fury you just never know.

“He could decide now I don’t fancy fighting this year or retire again, or is this a ploy to get the Saudis to pay more money to bring in Usyk?

“I don’t know. But all I can go on is what I’m being told by George Warren, which is 100% they want this fight.”
