Eddie Hearn, promoter of unified heavyweight champion Briton Anthony Joshua (23-1-0, 22 KO), believes that American ex-champion Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KO) has long thrown himself away from the title chance with his abandoning a third fight with WBC title holder Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO).
“He’s his own boss. If he’s made enough money and is ready to leave, then good luck to him. This is a dangerous sport. Beyond legacy, you need a lot of money and continued health.
This is all strange. All I know is that Wilder thwarted the fight [с Фьюри]… And he will not have a chance to fight for the title until 2022 as we are going to beat Kubrat Pulev and face Fury, “Hearn said.
