Eddie Hearn - Joshua-Wilder Happening In 2018

Eddie Hearn - Joshua-Wilder Happening In 2018

Since Deontay Wilder's WBC Heavyweight Title defense against Bermane Stiverne on the fourth of November, he has been all up in the media, calling out to the only Heavyweight with more than one title, IBF, IBO WBA Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua for a unification fight.

Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) recently defeated Carlos Takam in the10th round on October 28, in front of a 78,000 crowd in Cardiff and his promoter Eddie Hearn believes that the same faith awaits the WBC Champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs), should they meet in the ring.

Deontay Wilder on his part believes just as Bermane Stiverne on the fourth, he will brutally knock out the British champion while Anthony Joshua has been more quiet among all the noise.

"He's not the type of guy to come out and say 'I'll knock Deontay Wilder out.' He knows he will and he will. He believes it, but you won't hear him say it, because he's humble and he's not gonna change," Hearn told BoxingScene

"I'll say it. Anthony Joshua knocks out Deontay Wilder every day of the week - including twice on a Sunday. But there is no point in talking about until we sit at the table. The good news is for fight fans - is that process is starting. And the good news is for fight fans - is that fight will happen in 2018."

Wilder had a very impressive win against Bermane Stiverne and the Matchroom Boxing CEO could see any thing to take from him.

"I didn't learn anything new. I don't think that you can possibly learn anything from that fight that you didn't already know. Deontay Wilder is a reckless, big puncher. If you want to give him props for beating Bermane Stiverne ... a guy who didn't throw a punch in the fight, a guy who boxed like once in three years.... not really. But he dealt with his mandatory and he dealt with it impressively," Hearn said.
