The head of Matchroom Boxing, Eddie Hearn, would gladly take up the organization of a duel between Deontay Wilder and Dillian White, but first the latter needs to revenge the defeat of Alexander Povetkin.
“For Dillian White right now, March 6th is the most important thing,” Hearn said. “If he loses this fight, he can forget about the fight with Deontay Wilder and about fighting for the world title. He must win this fight.
Apart from the fight between A.J. and Fury, for me the Wilder-White fight remains one of the most high-profile confrontations in boxing. I would really like to organize this fight. I think Deontay Wilder needs to get back into the ring. He definitely shouldn’t have fought Dillian White right away. To begin with, he would have to conduct an interim battle. Apparently he will be working with a new team of coaches. “
