Earlier on Monday afternoon Deontay Wilder‘s coach, Malik Scott defined that the rumors of a potential boxing match between the American and Anthony Joshua had been certainly true.
This adopted hypothesis that there could possibly be a blockbuster occasion in December which might see the top-four heavyweights on the planet all participate on the identical card.
“We’re in negotiations and there are going to be some nice fights, not simply with us, however with among the prime heavyweights,” defined Scott in an interview with IFLTV.
“Deontay needs the battle. We have already stated we need to battle. We’ll see what AJ does now, as a result of the ball is in his courtroom.
“We have no idea if he’ll benefit from it, we’re prepared.”
At that time, the highlight fell on Joshua‘s promoter, Eddie Hearn, who dropped the bombshell information of the potential occasion in response to Scott’s phrases.
“There’s a Center Jap nation that desires to arrange the Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder fights on the identical evening,” he confirmed to IFLTV.
“It will be in December and the purse for these two fights can be as much as $400 million.
“We need to do it.”
Denial by Fury
Lastly, probably the most essential events in all this, Tyson Fury, needed to paraphrase Scott, however with an essential caveat.
“I can verify that these rumors are bullsh*t,” Fury declared.
After failing to agree fights with both Usyk or Joshua, it appears unlikely that ‘Gypsy King’ is concerned with sharing the stage with so many huge names, though it might all be a matter of zeroes.
His promoters, Frank Warren and Bob Arum will certainly be eager to get Fury within the ring quickly, and if it is with a world-record purse, all the higher.
