Showtime Boss Exposes Eddie Hearn’s Joshua vs Wilder Negotiations

The Joshua vs Wilder fight will not be happening next up at least, at the earliest in 2019 now, but fans are looking to see who was telling the truth and who is to blame for the fight not happening this year.

Both Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn and Deontay Wilder’s co-manager Shelly Finkel have given their sides of what has gone on these past few months, as has Wilder, but now a new party has stepped into the fold with what went on.

Anthony Joshua has been boxing on Showtime in the US for his last number of big fights and Showtime Sports boss Stephen Espinoza has been no doubt investing a lot of money in Joshua.

Probably in the hope that a Wilder showdown would take place on the network.

Well, it’s not clear if Joshua will even be boxing on Showtime next up in the US with Eddie Hearn’s new DAZN streaming platform reported to be staging Joshua’s next fight, with HBO also linked.

The business side of things look to be heating up and Espinoza has stepped in to point out a few things about what happened with Hearn in trying to make the Joshua vs Wilder fight:

He also added:

Eddie really seems to be going to war with the powers that be in American boxing at the moment.

His new streaming service launch takes place early next month in the US.
