Usyk won’t lose a round to Wilder – Eddie Hearn


British promoter Eddie Hearn, who leads the career of former heavyweight champion (over 90.7 kg) from Britain Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs), commented on the progress of negotiations on the fight of his fighter against WBC title holder Briton Tyson Fury (32-0 -1, 23 KOs).

The functionary also expressed his opinion about a possible confrontation between the unified champion from Ukraine Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs) against the former US champion Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs).

– Regarding Fury and Joshua, do you have any replacement fighters in mind in case the fight with Fury does not take place?

— Yes, definitely. We still haven’t received the contract. I was told that it will be tonight, but we continue negotiations on the date of December 17, regardless of December 3. Our priority now is to make this fight. But we can’t rely on them or Fury. But once again, if this is true, then we will make a fight. Let’s see what happens in the next few days.

  • Fury or Wilder? Usyk was asked who he would like to fight next

Usyk said he wants to meet Deontay Wilder, what are your thoughts?

“I think it’s a good fight. I think the Saudis, of course, want to fight for the title of absolute champion. But this fight has been postponed for a long time if we do the Fury-Joshua fight. Therefore, you will need to look. I don’t see Usyk losing at least a round. At the same time, Wilder carries a power that will cause problems for anyone.
