Hearn’s assessment is in line with WBA IBF, WBO champ AJ, who sugggested that things have been going well.

He told Sky News: “I try not to do too much teasing.

“I had a catch-up with 258 Management, the great team I’ve been working with since I turned professional.

“They have been working in negotiations. They updated my promotional team about how things are going, they updated me.

“It is getting close to things being normal. We’re working on a date for around June.

“So if Tyson is serious, which I think he is, he’ll know where to come and fight the boss.

“I’m ready. I’m really looking forward to competition – all I want to do is fight, fight, fight. I can’t wait to get back in the ring.”
