Hearn: If Wilder Doesn't Want Joshua - Nothing We Can Do

Hearn: If Wilder Doesn't Want Joshua - Nothing We Can Do

Legit.ng recalls that World'sWBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua recently went on vacation to Jamaica with his team.

While Anthony Joshua is more than willing to meet Deontay Wilder in the ring this April, he's not quite as keen on a fight with Tyson Fury.

"He (Joshua) just came out and told the truth: I want Deontay Wilder on April 13 - that's my fight date at Wembley", Hearn exclusively told Sky Sports.

However, as things stand, the victor of Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora's grudge rematch later this month appear the obvious choice for the April 13 slot against Joshua, although Hearn remains optimistic of convincing Wilder to cross the pond in a battle for the undisputed championship.

Joshua is clear in his aim of finally getting hold of the final world title to make him unquestionably the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and although he didn't rule out a fight with "The Gyspy King" at some point, he clearly would prefer to fight "the Bronze Bomber" next.

The former heavyweight world champion hung up his gloves after being stopped by Joshua in a epic clash at Wembley past year, but now seems tempted by the possibility of getting a second bite at the cherry amid uncertainty over the Brit's next opponent. I don't know what more I need to do to get that message across.

The 2012 Olympic champion picked up the IBF belt, then captured the WBA (Super) and IBO against Klitschko in a thrilling fire-fight at Wembley Stadium.

Unbeknownst to her fans at her a California concert, many were secretly scanned using facial recognition technology. In April, one of the star's stalkers was found sleeping by police at her home in NY after reports of a break-in.


"When I was joining the heavyweight ranks, nobody told me about [being] lineal champion", Joshua said.

Joshua declared precisely: "Especially the champion Deontay Wilder April 13th at Wembley, what more can I say".

"I can't control what Deontay Wilder does", he continued.

The American and Fury have both expressed a desire to set up their rematch in the new year after their intriguing heavyweight contest ended in a draw. "What more can I say?"

"I want to fight the champion".

"But if I've got to get my hands on that too, and that's a bout that the world is interested in, Fury can step in if he's serious". I'm the one leading the pack.

"I think he text (ed) AJ and said: "I want to come back". It's just Deontay Wilder, just the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world.
