Hearn: AJ Will Fight Fury-Wilder Winner In 2019

Hearn: AJ Will Fight Fury-Wilder Winner In 2019”

"The Gypsy King" and UK promoter Frank Warren both hailed the new deal, but for many it has thrown into doubt a rematch between the lineal heavyweight champion and WBC titleholder Wilder.

The time scale may be delayed, even though Wilder is indicating that he is not personally contracted to the Showtime cable network in America and may be able to fight Fury on ESPN there as well as BT Sport in the UK.

After their controversial draw back in December 2018, the Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury rematch has been eagerly craved by nearly everyone with an interest in boxing. At the end of 2015, he bested long standing champion Wladimir Klitshcko in Germany, to wrest the heavyweight crown off the Ukranian's head.

The IBF, WBA and WBO champion Anthony Joshua's next fight on June 1 against Jarrell Miller will be shown in the United States on DAZN, giving all three fighters different loyalties and interests.

"If Wilder allows loyalty to Showtime to be an issue, he's a fool". Months removed from their first fight - a majority draw - he's still unhappy with the result.

"If I didn't want to fight Wilder then I wouldn't have taken it the first time", Fury said.

The WBC suspended its planned purse bid because promoters for Wilder and Fury were closing in on a deal for a rematch.

So there is always hope.

"I can only fight who they put in front of me", he told a news conference.

And president Mauricio Sulaiman was chasing both Warren and Wilder's manager Shelly Finkel on Monday evening to try to find out what's happening now the goalposts have moved.

"Are you for real!" The defence against Fury was Wilder's eighth and there are plenty of heavyweights out there for Wilder to meet and beat.

"Your mom said she's going to make parmesan cheese after I beat you - please", Miller said.

Fury worked in solitude for a year with his new coach, Ben Davison, and from boxing's wilderness the gentle construction of the toppled giant took place. The 33-year-old slugger dropped Fury twice en route to a controversial split draw in their blockbuster December bout, which aired on Showtime PPV. There will be more of an understanding about what Joshua is doing with his career.

It's a brand new deal, but it does not yet feel like a brand new day in the heavyweight division. "I'm fighting for more than just boxing".
