Promoter Eddie Hearn talks about Anthony Joshua's 'nervous' coaching team, reveals the secrecy about David Haye-Tony Bellew, and discusses future plans for Katie Taylor.
The Matchroom Boxing boss has been keeping a close eye on Joshua's preparations ahead of his second defence of the IBF title against Molina on December 10, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
A planned fight between Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko has been pencilled in for next spring, but Hearn admits the IBF champion's coaches are fully aware that Molina cannot be overlooked.
Hearn said: "I know he is the favourite, but Molina can punch, he has plenty of ambition, and I think Molina will be thinking there is a chance this guy might have taken his eye off the ball here - and that is the biggest concern going into this fight.
All we've got to do is beat Eric Molina to set up one of the biggest fights in heavyweight history, but it's a dangerous fight, a difficult fight.
"I know from the training team's perspective, everyone is nervous about this fight, because of what's beyond it.
"All we've got to do is beat Eric Molina to set up one of the biggest fights in heavyweight history, but it's a dangerous fight, a difficult fight."
Hearn sheds more light on the complicated negotiations and reveals why he did not enforce a weight limit for the fight.
At the weekend, Katie Taylor made a winning start to her professional career, and her second fight will be staged on a packed undercard for Joshua-Molina.
After predicting a possible world title fight next year, Hearn talks more about his ambitious plans for Ireland's former amateur star.
