Eddie Hearn believes Anthony Joshua is ready to destroy Kubrat Pulev and Tyson Fury in his next two fights by taking out both rivals.
Joshua, who currently holds the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles, will face Pulev in a mandatory defense of his belt later this year, with a fight on December 12.
And despite his return to the ring being delayed for months by the Covid-19 pandemic, promoter Hearn insists his man is ready to establish himself as the division’s unified champion in style.

Tyson Fury is next for Joshua after Pulev, but Eddie Hearn thinks he’ll be knocked out
“I actually messaged him and I said, ‘You’re gonna roll steam through these guys,’ Hearn recalled Sky Sports.
He just answered in capital letters and said, “STEAMROLL!” I think he would like it [stop Fury]. Yes. He knows Fury is an excellent fighter and it will be very difficult.
‘But you can ask him yourself, I think he has bad intentions in those fights and I think he expects that too. I think he will take out Kubrat Pulev and Tyson Fury. ‘
Joshua will face Fury in two mega fights in 2021, after financial terms of the deal were agreed earlier this year.

And with the WBC title Gypsy King – the only band that has escaped AJ in his career so far – Hearn expects an even more aggressive performance from the 30-year-old.
“I think he’s ready to get rid of these guys,” Hearn added.
‘I think he’s shown coming back from the [Andy] Ruiz Jr fights that he has the ability to box and move. That is now in the arsenal.
“But he still likes to knock people out – and when you see the drills, when you see the blocks and you see it in his shots.”
