Hearn Predicts Deontay Wilder Knocks Out Tyson Fury In Rematch
Eddie Hearn, Promoter of IBF, IBO, WBA,WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has expressed, he will like to see Tyson Fury emerge winner of the rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder but believes the Champion will come out victorious when they collide on February 22nd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Hearn would like Fury to become the winner of the rematch because he believes making a deal with the Brit will be much easier than negotiating with Deontay Wilder.
“He said [Joshua] hardly won his titles back [from Andy Ruiz]?,” Hearn said to IFL TV.
“This is a guy who, for years and years, has failed to fight Anthony Joshua. Now he’s doing it again. This is why Tyson’s got to get the win. We can make that [fight] happen. Tyson Fury would fight Anthony Joshua, no problem.
“It’s a quick conversation between me, Bob Arum and MTK, and it gets done instantly. Wilder is just on another planet. Unfortunately, I think Wilder is going to win the fight.
There is actually no way anyone will see Wilder out-boxing Tyson Fury with what we saw in the first fight and that directly points to a knock out victory for Wilder ,who came so close to winning the first fight via a 12th round knockout.
Hearn believes that from the recent comments made by Wilder during a recent interview , He won’t be willing to sign the contracts for the super fight with Anthony Joshua,if he comes out if the fight victorious in his upcoming rematch with Tyson Fury.
“Of course I want Fury to win, because he’s a Brit. Plus, it gives us that much easier chance of making the big fight, because he would fight him. If Wilder wins this fight, he’ll be under so much pressure to fight Joshua, but everyone can see what we’re up against from those comments. To say Joshua isn’t in the picture is just crazy, it’s weird.”
Anthony Joshua has his hand full right now with mandatoeies and is presently preparing for a mandatory defence against IBF No.1 Kubrat Pulev and after that will have to face WBO 1 contender Olexandr Usyk.
