Eddie Hearn, promoter of British ex-world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs), claims that we, the boxing fans, will like their choice of opponent for the return, which is scheduled for April 1 in London (England) .
At the same time, the functionary did not even make transparent hints about who it could be, and, just in case, noted that the deal had not yet been closed.
“This is going to be a real fight against a quality heavyweight,” Hearn said. “At the moment, we are already close to concluding a deal. And we don’t take an easy fight. I think you’ll be happy when you find out who we’re talking about, if we do get the exact guy we want.”
Previously, a possible opponent Joshua was named by Wilder’s coach, and the Australian heavyweight said that the choice could fall on him.
Meanwhile, insiders have learned who will be the new coach of Anthony, who in 2021-22. had two fights with Alexander Usik and lost on points in both.
