Wilder – Joshua? The American answered Hearn


The manager of American heavyweight knockout Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) Shelly Finkel is ready to discuss with representatives of Briton Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) their possible fight. Recall that when both were still unbeaten world champions, they and the teams demonstrated the worst negotiability in boxing: months of negotiations and accusations against each other in 2019 in the media and social networks turned into nothing but zilch and irritation of boxing fans.

Now Finkel says he heard the words of the British promoter Eddie Hearn, and took them into account.

“Well, Joshua was brave enough to get back in the ring against an opponent he clearly lost to. Now it all depends on what Joshua sees fit, if he needs to take a break and then go against Deontay in a comeback, then we are open,” Finkel said.
The Sun.

“If there’s a big offer for a fight like this and Eddie wants to talk about it, then we’ll figure out what to do. If it’s meant to happen this time – which didn’t happen in the past – it will happen. If this is not destined to happen, then we will go our own way, and they will go theirs, ”said Wilder’s manager philosophically.

Wilder coach: Joshua is a superstar

Wilder, 36, will make his own comeback after a long downtime: on October 15, he will face former sparring partner Robert Helenius.

Finkel says that “there is only one battle on our mind right now and nothing else, and that is the fight with Helenius. Because if Deontay doesn’t do what he has to do with Robert, nothing else will matter.”
