Hearn isn’t too worried about not being followed by Joshua

Joshua now follows just 25 accounts on Instagram and 20 on Twitter, with his contingent of sponsors taking up the majority of his attention.

Although the President of Matchroom Boxing didn’t make the cut, he was rather relaxed about it after Teofimo Lopez’s shock loss to George Kambosos Jr on Saturdya night in New York.

Asked about the “non-follow-up” of the masses, Hearn replied, “Nothing. I think he didn’t follow everyone except his sponsors anymore, did he? “

He then smiled before adding, “Don’t worry, we’re still talking every day.”

Joshua is currently preparing for his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk next year, which Hearn told talkSPORT would take place in “March or April” as he sought revenge for his loss in September.

Britain’s rival Tyson Fury urged AJ to step down to allow him and Usyk to fight to unify the division, but the 32-year-old from Watford was not sure it was something he would be willing to consider.

“In terms of withdrawal, I don’t know if that is what I stand for morally,” Joshua told iFL TV

“But let me be true with you, I also want to be known as one of the smartest businessmen. If the money is right, we have to look at it, but respect for me has a lot more to do with it. value than money.

“It’s about respect first, what I’m known for when I leave this heavyweight division, and the third thing is the smartest businessman.

“Would I take the money from the withdrawal?” Whether this is a smart business decision? Will it affect my reputation and respect? Will I still fight the best fighters?

“I have to consider these three things in my career. These are the three things and the three principles that I really stand for when it comes to fighting.
