Eddie Hearn believes Anthony Joshua wants to do a ‘demolition job’ on Tyson Fury next year.
The two Brits have agreed financial terms to meet in 2021, though there are still hurdles to overcome in the meantime.
Fury must first overcome Deontay Wilder again in a trilogy battle.
Meanwhile, AJ is currently preparing to face Kubrat Pulev next.
Hearn told Sky Sports: “I actually messaged him and I said, ‘You’re going to steamroll through these guys.’
“He just replied in capitals and said, ‘STEAMROLL!’”
Asked if he thinks Joshua intends to beat Fury in emphatic fashion, Hearn said: “I think he’d love to. Yeah.
“He knows that Fury is an outstanding fighter and it’s going to be very difficult.
“But you can ask him for yourself, I believe he has bad intentions in those fights and I believe he expects to.
“I believe he will knock out Kubrat Pulev and Tyson Fury.”
The promoter concluded: “I think he’s ready to start doing a demolition job on these guys.
“I think he’s shown, coming back from the [Andy] Ruiz Jr fight, that he has the ability to box and move. That’s in the arsenal now.
“But he still loves knocking people out – and when you see the drills, when you see the pads and you see that spite in his shots.
“That’s something not just what they are working on, that’s something that’s coming from inside of him…
“I’m never seen him so excited to fight Pulev and Fury.
“That is what he’s got and he has bad intentions to do a demolition job on these people and I’m one million per cent convinced he does it.”
