We were informed a short time ago of the following below from WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder’s manager Shelly Finkel.
Finkel and Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn have been in discussions all week regarding a potential super fight between boxing’s only two current heavyweight champions.
Earlier this week an offer was made from Wilder’s representatives to the value of $50 million however Hearn passionately took issue with this in his interviews yesterday in New York.
Citing no contract or terms available in the deal making them unable to accept it verbally first.
However not long ago we were sent the following letter from Shelly Finkel in counter to Hearn’s claims in the media:
Some interesting food for thought there.
Hearn promotes his second American boxing card tonight in the Barclays Center in New York which will be headlined by Danny Jacobs at middleweight.
Also on the card will be Ireland’s Katie Taylor and heavyweight contender Jarrell Miller.
The action tonight will be shown live on HBO.
As regards the Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder super fight, fans are hoping that these extended negotiations will conclude shortly so that we can all just see the fight at this stage.
