Tyson Fury believes Anthony Joshua is "finished" after he was sensationally dethroned by Andy Ruiz Jr in NY.
"He did it that night and I don't think he will come back from it". When he got to the ring I saw he didn't want to be there.
Joshua, 29, whose defeat against Ruiz was the first of his career, had previously made Fury an offer to fight.
Joshua is the more well-known fighter between the two and considered the "A" side of the negotiations, which would give him the power to dictate terms, even though Ruiz is now the champion.
Speaking to DAZN this week, Hearn said that the former unified heavyweight champion didn't receive any major injuries, but took a little bit of positivity from the fact he managed to last a further four rounds after being knocked down for the first time.More news: The T.50 is Gordon Murray’s McLaren F1 successor

Hearn says Joshua has a "rematch clause".
It now falls to Fury to make sure that he doesn't lose ahead of his rematch with Deontay Wilder next year, when he faces Tom Schwarz on Saturday. In what world could he ever beat me?
Fury was one of the heavyweight fighters who was deadset on a match with Joshua but after his historic loss, it seems as though Fury is much more interested in a rematch with Wilder.
"It's not something I would have predicted", said Arum, who promoted Ruiz for several fights. "He would break every heart monitor, has probably worn out every treadmill in the gym, smashes the bag, (but) it's all very unimportant".
Wilder and Fury fought to a draw in Los Angeles in December after an epic 12-round battle at the Staples Center.
