Eddie Hearn Criticized Wilder in the Wake of Parker's Upset Win!
In the aftermath of Joseph Parker’s stunning victory over Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, didn’t hold back in a scathing interview, dismantling Wilder’s performance and extinguishing any hopes of a Joshua-Wilder showdown.
Parker’s comprehensive outboxing of Wilder on the ‘Day of Reckoning’ in Saudi Arabia left the American fighter in shambles. Judges scored the bout 118-111, 118-110, 120-108 in Parker’s favor, highlighting the dominance from start to finish.
Wilder, appearing tired and resorting to questionable tactics like illegal hammer punches, seemed a shadow of his former self. The defeat not only puts a dent in Wilder’s career but also dashes the much-anticipated bout against Anthony Joshua.
In the post-fight interview, Wilder hinted at the possibility of retirement, leaving the boxing community in suspense. Despite expressing resilience, Wilder’s demeanor suggested a shift in priorities, with Joshua’s promoter seizing the opportunity to express his disdain for the American fighter.
Hearn, known for his candid remarks, didn’t mince words, stating, “I don’t rate him.” Mockingly joking about needing to “vomit” after Wilder’s performance, Hearn declared the defeat as the most one-sided heavyweight fight he’s witnessed, undermining any credibility Wilder might claim.
The crushing defeat has forced a reevaluation of plans for the highly anticipated Joshua-Wilder clash. Hearn emphasized that Wilder’s future in the heavyweight scene was bleak and that Joshua needed to be informed of this unexpected turn of events.
In the wake of Wilder’s downfall, Eddie Hearn has shifted the narrative, cementing Joshua’s standing as the true heavyweight force to be reckoned with. The interview has added fuel to the flames of disappointment for those eagerly awaiting the clash
