Deontay Wilder’s co-manager Shelly Finkel states Eddie Hearn should be centered on’resurrecting’ Anthony Joshua – and not the WBC winner’s future plans.
Hearn raised doubts about the rematch, although wilder is place to make the following defence of his WBC heavyweight title against Luis Ortiz to be announced later this season.
Co-manager Finkel has reacted to the Matchroom Boxing manager, confirming that the bout will be disclosed within the upcoming few weeks and told Hearn to change his focus to Joshua, that encounters Andy Ruiz Jr at a rematch on December 7, now live on Sky Sports Box Office, since the British Airways tries to avenge a shock defeat to the Mexican at June.
Finkel told Sky Sports:”After reading Eddie’s quotes today I think he should not be worrying about Deontay and ought to put all of his energy into resurrecting Joshua, because that is what is really needed.
“Deontay’s battle against Luis Ortiz will be formally announced later that season, as has always been planned.”
