WBC Champion Deontay Wilder To Announce Next Title Defense

Joshua Wilder to fight Nov or Dec – Hearn

The fight to finally decide the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world appears to have moved a step closer after promoter Eddie Hearn revealed he's had some very promising news on developments concerning a fight between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

"It's not just about doing a deal with Wilder, it's about doing a deal with Joshua".

Top Rank offered Wilder a two-fight deal with a $12.5 million for the first fight, and PBC offered to push a potential fight with WBC mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale to Pay-Per-View. I would definitely much rather fight Breazeale on Fox.

News broke on March 13, exactly one month on from Frank Warren and Lineal Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury's multi-year, multi-fight agreement with ESPN, BT Sport, and Bob Arum's Top Rank Boxing. "There's a clear desire from both sides to make the fight (happen)".

And with Wilder vs Fury 2 seemingly no longer on the table, Hearn believes we could see "AJ" lock horns with "The Bronze Bomber" by year's end.

There are, of course, many details to iron out, including the prospect of a two-fight deal where each fighter has the right to an immediate rematch and the location of the fight.

The list of nominees is kept secret for at least 50 years, in line with the Nobel Foundation's statutes. Taking to Twitter , Thunberg expressed her gratitude for the nomination.

The financial terms of the tie-up were not made official, but Ring Magazine's Mike Coppinger tweeted that DAZN will pay Golovkin an eight-figure sum for each fight, with previous reports suggesting the boxer could receive an equity stake in the streaming platform's business.

Wilder last fought at the venue in March 2018 when he stopped Luis Ortiz in the 10th round.

"Clearly, the relationship between Team Wilder and Team Joshua is not the best". He will fight an alternative opponent in May or June. A rematch was expected, but Fury has since signed with DAZN.

"Gennady Golovkin is a generational talent with worldwide appeal", added DAZN Group executive chairman John Skipper.

"Pay-per-view for me is definitely those big moments, those special magical moments for fights that people have to see". "We're confident he will bring his passionate fans to the platform as we produce tentpole events with his team over the next several years".
