Eddie Hearn Says Joshua-Wilder Won’t Happen Only if Saudi Fails to Deliver

Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder

Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn is quite sure that Anthony Joshua vs Deontay Wilder will happen. 

Eddie Hearn stated that at this point, Joshua and Wilder’s bout fails to happen only if Skills Challenge fails to do their part in Saudi Arabia. 

Boft fighters want this fight as they already agreed to do it, and so do their managers and promoters. They are completely sold on the idea of his anticipated heavyweight clash to take place in the second half of January 2024. 

Anthony Joshua knocked out Robert Helenius in a brutal manner last weekend and after that, he clearly indicated that he is eyeing Deontay Wilder for his next opponent. 

According to the reports, the fighters only need to sign the contract for this anticipated clash in Saudi Arabia early next year. 

In case, this fight fails to materialize then Hearn will probably book Joshua to fight in December later this year. Now, it remains to be seen whether the Saudi bout will actually happen and when the promoters will officially announce it.
