Eddie Hearn has revealed that Anthony Joshua is not the only man on the receiving end of Tyson Fury’s sporadic FaceTime phone calls.
Last month, AJ explained that Fury would sometimes ring him up out of the blue and inform him he’s planning to knock him out in future.
Joshua’s promoter Hearn has now confirmed that he gets the same treatment.
Speaking on the True Geordie Podcast, the Matchroom boss said: “He [Fury] has blocked me on Twitter actually, still.
“He phoned me the other night, I was laying in bed, it was like ten to midnight.
“This was before he started training camp for Otto Wallin so I think he’d had a beer or two.
“It’s like *mimics phone vibrating* ‘Tyson Fury would like to FaceTime you.’
“I don’t know if he’s with someone and he wants to give me some stick like, ‘Eddie you w****r, waheyy.’
“So I’ve gone *mimics putting phone down* – like that.

“*Mimics phone vibrating again* – Same again, so I’ve just replied and gone, ‘I’ll call you tomorrow mate.’
“He’s gone, ‘Pick up the phone.’
“I’m like, ‘F***.’
“I’ve gone outside, downstairs, ‘What?’
“[He says], ‘Eddie boy, get up there my boy, waheyy. Why are you working with all these other dosser heavyweights? You need the ‘Gypsy King’ in your life.’
“I’m thinking, ‘What the f***ing..?’ But he’s one of a kind. He’s another great personality.”
