They even had an agreement in place to fight last December until talks once again collapsed.

Joshua, 33, now returns on Saturday against Jermaine Franklin, 29, in his must-win comeback bout.

Meanwhile Fury, 34, has been left in the lurch after his proposed title unification with Oleksandr Usyk, 36, suffered a similar KO.

Hearn could capitalise by pitting AJ against the Gypsy King at last with talks said to have already started.

In quotes reported by Daily Mail, he said: “I have had talks this week with George Warren and fundamentally the original contract is still in place and we all know that the timing is perfect now, as it happens because of the circumstances with Usyk.

“This is the very last chance for this huge fight to happen. I expect to be exchanging pilot contracts with Queensberry soon.

“Maybe as early as next week. AJ knows there’s a big opportunity. At last. So much at stake now, but he also has his total focus on Franklin.”

Despite Hearn’s hope, Fury’s promoter Frank Warren hit back to talkSPORT: “It was a 30-second conversation.

“That thing that was in the Mail yesterday, George rang Hearn and said, ‘What’s this all about?’ He said he was unaware of it. I’m just telling you what he said.

“George said it was less than a 30-second conversation and we’ve not even discussed it with Tyson.

“Really annoyed about that because that 100 per cent did not happen. ‘Contracts are gonna be signed in the next week’, it’s just absolute b****cks.

“This is what starts all that stuff going, I know you’re in the social media business and we are to a certain extent, but social media’s actually killing some of the fights because of the expectation level.

“Something’s exploded and the next minute it’s, ‘Why’s that not happened?’

“I don’t wanna be conducting negotiations through social media. That became part of the downfall of the fight with Usyk.”

Knees
