TYSON FURY is gearing up for his huge rematch with Deontay Wilder, who has revealed he broke his hand when facing the Gypsy King in 2018.
And Eddie Hearn says Fury must win, if the world is to ever see a unification fight against Anthony Joshua.
AJ has said he wants a match-up against Fury or Wilder before the end of 2020.

Tyson Fury insists he still has “a lot of options open” with just three fights left on his £80million Top Rank contract.
The heavyweight champion appeared on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday morning – but refused to reveal too much about his plans beyond this weekend.
Fury steps back into the ring for his eagerly-anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder on Saturday night, desperate to claim the WBC heavyweight world title.
But what happens next is still up in the air.
Fury said: “I’ve got three fights left on my contract, I’m 31 years old.
“We’ll take one at a time, there are a lot of options open.”
The Bronze Bomber loves his motors.
Deontay Wilder, 34, has amassed a £23million fortune during a boxing career that’s left many of his opponents dazed and confused and hitting the canvas.
And his car collection is also a knockout, featuring a very special Lamborghini, a gentleman’s Rolls Royce, as well as a good, old American favourite.
As Wilder gears up to face Tyson Fury at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on February 22, SunSport takes a look at the Tuscaloosa, Alabama native’s fine garage.
MORNING, BOXING FANS
Tyson Fury completed a hat-trick of outrageous claims – on the day Anthony Joshua urged the Gypsy King and Deontay Wilder to hurry up arranging their own trilogy…
Appropriately enough, the long-awaited Fury-Wilder rematch in Vegas is now just three days away.
And having already said he masturbated seven times daily to keep his testosterone levels up, while also “doing a lot of p**** licking” to strengthen his jaw, married father-of-five Fury now says he would celebrate victory with a “binge on cocaine and hookers”.
He explained: “I go to the cheap $30 ones. Always give yourself a shot of penicillin before s****ing them.”
But the time has almost arrived for Fury to knock out his sensational claims and focus on what he can do in the ring.
And ex-world champ Joseph Parker insists he has seen at first hand Fury WILL try to stop WBC king Wilder rather than just outbox him in his typical style.
Most pundits believe either hard-hitting Wilder will land a KO or Fury will triumph on points – in the way many felt he had done in the duo's drawn first contest.
But Fury insists he will go for an inside-the-distance win – and New Zealand heavyweight Parker backed that up: “The reason I say he is going to put on more pressure is that I have seen it in camp.
“Coming forward, back, forward in his movement, he looks like he is implementing what he is saying he is going to do which to come forward, throw more punches, be more aggressive.
“I think Tyson is going to try to knock Wilder out at some stage of the fight, for sure.”
Meanwhile, promoter Eddie Hearn has urged the two rivals to quickly sort out a third fight – which Fury says will definitely happen – so Joshua can take on the winner this year.
After AJ regained his IBF, WBA and WBO crowns with revenge over Andy Ruiz Jr, his priority is to unify the titles.
Hearn said: “My opinion is that Joshua is the best but, until he beats the winner, the world will not be satisfied.
“We have to put the pressure on the winner to finally get our fight on in 2020.”
Fury will dream it is him – unless he falls hooker, line and stinker against Wilder.
TYME WILL BE UP
TYSON FURY claims he will retreat to his Morecambe home and “never sniff boxing again” if he cannot beat Deontay Wilder in their rematch.
Fury, 31, said: “If I cannot beat Deontay Wilder then I am no good.
“I will go back to Morecambe and never sniff boxing again. I will be s***, total s***.
“That is how confident I am of kicking him all over that ring. There is no losing and if he wants a rematch then he will lose again.
“I look at Wilder and I don’t see a tough fight.
“People go on about him being the biggest puncher in heavyweight history but Wilder has fought 35 stiffs.
“Here in America they call them ‘tomato cans’.
“He has only had probably seven competitive fights, where people have tried to fight back.”
“I am going for a second-round knockout 100 per cent”
“They can expect the most exciting fight in 50 years, I know he is coming for a fight and so am I.
“I am not scared even scared of the devil. If the devil confronted me, I would confront him as well.
“Who is ready for a f***ing war? Let’s go!”
