Last weekend Dillian Whyte knocked out Dereck Chisora to put himself in the shop window on April 13th for the Anthony Joshua Wembley fight.
But the fight people really want to see however at this point is Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury.
Joshua vs Deontay Wilder in close second after that.
Fury and Wilder drew recently in their fight in LA but most thought Fury deserved to get the decision leaving fans now wanting to see Fury take on Joshua next up.
But boxing politics always come into play and although promoter of Joshua, Eddie Hearn said Joshua vs Wilder is a bigger fight worldwide than Joshua vs Fury is — he knows it’s not in his heart of hearts.
He knows the numbers like the back of hands too.
He knows that Fury has the style of boxing that could frustrate Joshua and ultimately is more of a risk to his client and his own financial remuneration personally than a Deontay Wilder fight is.
Lets not beat around the bush here.
Following Joshua getting in the ring last Saturday at the weekend boxing fans can’t be fooled by anything it would seem:
As you can see, from the above qualitative market research from a sentiment and opinion standpoint and from a quantitative secondary market research viewpoint in the number of ‘likes’ on those tweets above — the public are no fools.
They want Joshua vs Fury next year.
But don’t expect it too soon.
Likely a Wilder vs Fury rematch will happen first and the winner will fight Joshua.
In an ideal world.
