Heavyweight Boxing Unification Terms Agreed : Joshua vs Wilder
US Manager Shelly Finkel officially accepts offer from Promoter Eddie Hearn to fight in UK.
The one the fans have been waiting for is getting closer as the WBC Champion ‘Bronze Bomber’ tweets :
🚨 BREAKING NEWS 🚨 for all you @anthonyfjoshua fans… The $50M offer for him to fight me next in the US is still available.
Olympic gold medallist AJ is looking for his next defence of his WBA (Super), WBO and IBF titles in September.
Alexander Povetkin is next in line for a shot at the World Champion if Wilder vs Joshua doesn’t happen this year.
” EDDIE HEARN ‘Contract Sent!’ “
Barry Hearn and Eddie have been pushing for the Mega-Fight and AJ has demanded the fight in England (maybe Cardiff) rather than America.
STATS : Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KO) vs Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KO).
More news is likely to follow in the coming days and weeks as we get a response from Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn and the Champ himself.
Negotiations have been a rollercoaster since the Joshua vs Joseph Parker fight earlier in the year.
Parker who took Anthony Joshua the full 12 rounds for the first time is now set to fight Dillian Whyte at the O2 on July 28 #WhyteParker.
AJ has been looking in great shape on his off season away from the ring, raising his profile to the american audience and keeping fans updated posting on social media #AJBXNG.
Social Media Tweet : Good laugh with the audience and @ConanOBrien on @TeamCoco! Hopefully see you guys soon, thanks for having me 😉👌🏾
Fury vs AJ won’t be happening this year that is for sure.
Tyson Fury beat Sefer Seferi in just 4 rounds in Manchester but has a long way to go before he is back to his very best to challenge at the top level.
More to come…
