As Anthony Joshua prepares to fight this Saturday, taking on Denis Bakhtov at the O2 Arena, Eddie Hearn has come up with a fight he believes would excite the country.

Talking about his exciting heavyweight prospect, Hearn has remarked,

?In the world of boxing and particularly in this country, a fight between David Haye and Anthony Joshua in 2015 is a stadium event,?

?It?s a huge, huge fight with massive potential. If he wants to win world titles, these are the guys [Haye, Price, Chisora and Fury] ? he has got to demolish on the way and I?m sure that he will demolish these guys as well. I don?t think anything is going to stop him.?

Is Hearn being serious?

Firstly I can?t see David Haye wanting to, or, needing to take on the young prospect and, following what happened in the build-up to the proposed David Haye v Tyson Fury fights, would Hearn be prepared to waste valuable career time against an opponent that could be described as fragile when it comes to injuries?
