Hearn, 42, met him in Monaco that year but did not think he would return to title contention.

Lifting the lid on what happened, Anthony Joshua’s promoter told Social boxing podcast: “It’s hard because AJ is a close friend of mine.

“I’ve always wanted the two of them to fight so AJ is ours and I can imagine beating him.

“With Tyson, I took him to Monaco and he played 26.

“He was sweating, and I just thought to myself ‘you’ll never fight again’.

“So the plan was to have two easy battles, by which we mean guys like Sefer Seferi that he did, but then take a step forward and fight like Manuel Charr.

“I was just thinking… If I had known he was going to fight Sefer Seferi, another and then Deontay Wilder, I would have done it all.”

Fury, 33, looked after Seferi and Francesco Pianeta before taking over Wilder in 2018.

After an explosive draw with the Bronze Bomber, Fury defeated Otto Wallin in a bloody battle – before twice defeating Wilder and claiming the WBC belt.

Despite Fury’s incredible success, Hearn insists he has no qualms about his decision.

He added: “I have no regrets.

“But do I want to be in the Fury-Wilder? It’s my bread and butter, of course!

“It’s something I live for, but at the same time I know we have Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora ​​and people like that but it would be a really awkward situation to have Fury and AJ.

“You can’t say you wouldn’t respect a fighter and a character like Tyson Fury because he’s become a huge star.”

Joshua’s chances of facing Fury will ultimately depend on his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk in the spring.

The Gypsy King, meanwhile, we battle another Matchroom gladiator in Dillian Whyte.
