If Tyson Fury wants to fight Anthony Joshua on April 13th at Wembley Stadium, it can happen.
Anthony Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, has revealed there’s more chance he’ll fight Tyson Fury than Deontay Wilder.
A unification between Joshua and Deontay Wilder appears to be a million miles away. Team Wilder aren’t even returning Hearn’s emails.
“Well, to say Deontay Wilder’s camp has gone quiet, that’s saying it lightly,” the Matchroom boss said to Sky Sports.
“Probably up to six unanswered emails now. In fact, I sent one a couple of days ago, saying I just want to check these haven’t gone into your Spam items.
“It is frustrating because you walk out there on the street ‘When’s he going to fight Deontay Wilder?’ It’s like, whenever they want it, but sometimes the public want to believe a fighter on Instagram all day.
“If they wanted the fight, they would talk to me.
“They’re not even talking to us. We’ve made offers, we’ve made percentage splits. Everything we can do, to try and make that fight.”
Hearn reveals Fury is a more likely opponent than the undefeated-American WBC world champion.
“I think right now, there’s more chance of fighting Tyson Fury. There’s a man that knows he can have this fight, if he wants it. I’ve spoken to him. He knows if he wants to fight Joshua, it can happen April 13,” he added.
“All those guys that I’ve mentioned, particularly Wilder, Fury and Whyte – that fight is there for them.”
Wilder and Fury, however, continue to be in discussion over a rematch. The pair fought to a controversial draw last December with a second meeting reportedly in the works.
That could pave the way for Joshua-Whyte II, unless he swerves him and takes on Jarrell Miller in the States.
