Anthony Joshua says a fight with Tyson Fury will happen in the future
Joshua retained his WBA and IBF titles on Saturday with a 10th round win over Carlos Takam at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
Following the fight, Hearn admitted he would love to organise a fight between the heavyweight champion and Fury.
Fury has not fought since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 and had his license suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control in October 2016.
Joshua admits it would be a fight that would interest him if Fury can get his license back but reckons he will face the likes of Joseph Parker and Deontay Wilder first.
