But Matchroom Boxing boss Hearn claims that Fury’s comments are an attempt to hide the fact that he is instead interested in fighting German heavyweight Mahmoud (formerly Manuel) Charr.
“Convos are decent and moving in the right direction, but there’s still a long way to go.” Hearn to Seconds Out.
“Fury wants to fight Manuel Charr, that’s pretty obvious, and the public isn’t the smartest if they actually think otherwise.”

Although the long-speculated clash between the top two British heavyweights of a generation seemed the closest thing to reality, Hearn explained that if Fury’s ultimatum on Monday was sincere, the fight will not happen.
“I think that there is no way that this contract will be signed on Monday because there is still a lot to do
“This fight will take time. We waited 10 days to get the contract… suddenly he wants it signed within 24 hours. No chance.’
