Hearn Doubts Joshua vs. Wilder Clash of Titans Derailed

Eddie Hearn, the driving force behind Anthony Joshua, dismisses the likelihood of a competitive showdown with Deontay Wilder, casting doubt on the long-anticipated face-off between the heavyweight giants.

Recently, both fighters showcased their prowess in Saudi Arabia’s ‘Day of Reckoning’ event, where Joshua secured a resounding victory over Otto Wallin, while Wilder faced defeat against Joseph Parker in a co-feature.

Originally, the event was intended as a prelude to the highly anticipated March clash between Joshua and Wilder. However, Wilder’s underwhelming performance against Parker seemed to derail these plans. At 38 and facing a 14-month layoff, Wilder struggled to find his rhythm and timing throughout the match, ultimately falling short.

Hearn expressed skepticism about the feasibility of the Joshua-Wilder bout, indicating a shift in perception among those involved in its planning. He deemed the potential match as no longer holding the allure it once did, considering the recent turn of events.

Following Wilder’s lackluster performance and evident ring rust, Hearn emphasized the mismatch in competitiveness, steering attention away from the previously hyped clash between the two heavyweights.

The outcome of the recent fights has altered the landscape, potentially reshaping Joshua’s future opponents and redirecting the focus away from the anticipated Joshua-Wilder spectacle.
