EDDIE HEARN claimed Tyson Fury is “piping up again” to take the shine away from Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.

Joshua, 32, was beaten by Usyk, 35, last September but the two prepare to do battle again on August 20 in Saudi Arabia.

As the huge unified heavyweight world title bout edges closer, Fury, 33, has come out and announced he will make a return to boxing.

And the timing of the Gypsy King’s revelation – who insisted he is still the best heavyweight in the world – comes as no surprise to AJ’s promoter Hearn.

He told iFL TV: “‘I’m the best heavyweight in the world?’

“Yeah, because Anthony Joshua is obviously fighting in a couple of weeks, so he’s going to start piping up again.

“All eyes are on AJ in Saudi in two weeks tonight. It’s unbelievable how quickly it’s come around.

“A little week this week of us locking in our schedule for September, October, and November, and then off to Saudi to see AJ do the business.”

Fury has been linked with a return fight to challenge the winner between Joshua and Usyk in what would be an undisputed title decider.

But the 6ft 9in unbeaten star has instead turned his attention to Derek Chisora, 38, the man he beat in 2011 and 2014.

It is believed the pair are closing in on a deal for a trilogy bout in December at Cardiff’s 75,000-seat Principality Stadium.

Fury said on Instagram: “I spoke to your management team, we’re all good.

“Everything is sorted, looking good. Contract be over or a day or so. Peace out, you’re getting knocked out.”
