The Liverpool boxer was supposed to rematch David Haye on December 17 but the Londoner withdrew earlier this week through injury.
Dillian Whyte and Fury have both put their hands up on social media and offered to step in to enable the fight to go ahead – but it was subsequently cancelled.
Hearn has since offered some hope about a potential future fight between Fury and Bellew.
But he wants to see the Gypsy King regain his boxing licence before negotiations are opened.
“Bellew quite fancies that fight because he thinks he can beat him, but Tyson is a big old lump,” Hearn told iFL TV.
“Where are we with Fury? Where are we with the British Boxing board of control suspending him?
“I hope Tyson gets back in the ring ASAP. It’s great to see him back in the gym.
“We’re hoping the UK hearing is in December and he gets cleared and he gets his licence back.
“But we’re hoping, hoping, hoping rather than knowing, knowing, knowing.
“When that starts to get realistic, it is a fight we should get excited about.”
Fury has an incredible record of 25 wins from 25 fights, with 18 coming by knockout.
His last bout was against Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, which he won to claim all of the heavyweight belts.
But they were stripped from him when he was slapped with a ban.
He has since took to social media to call out a number of the worlds best heavyweights, including Anthony Joshua.
But it is yet to be seen if he will make his professional return.
