    You're a little slow. Wilder's profile is several times higher in 2019. This is why you hear the number "100 million" in 2019 and not "12 million" being thrown around.

    Your personal opinion about a judge's decision has zero impact on this. Just like your personal opinion of if Wilder thinks he won has zero impact. You don't even know why you're posting, but your fingertips keep moving.

    You might have heard about the 24 hour response thing. Do you know why they gave AJ 24 hours to agree to it?

    Everybody talking 50/50 and 100 million dollar fight now but fail to acknowledge that Wilder knew this was coming and stated so. It's not over, Hearn and AJ slighted Wilder and treated him like he was a bum. Now the chickens have come home to roost and Wilder is assuming the drivers position. An AJ vs Wilder fight has the potential to do numbers close to Mayweather vs Pac. It's a heavy weight fight and there is nothing in all of sports more dramatic than a high profile heavy weight fight.

    Would you wait for 2021 for the fight to happen though? It's all good for Wilder and Joshua to be so clever and wait it out to make more money but we the people obviously don't get a cut from that money lol.

    They said they wanted an answer within 24 hours. It’s a yes or no thing. You say yes and then the contracts and all that come together.

    If you publicly say “I will fight you for $50M” and they say “OK, we offer you $50M” ... how long do you need to think about it?

    I was hoping you would no why Team Wilder gave 24 hours. Yes I know it's a yes or no thing blah blah but that wasn't my question now was it. I just wanted to know why they were given 24 hours thats all as no one seems to know.

    I would venture that their point of view was if he’s serious, if he’s named his price, and his price is met, in shouldn’t take 24 minutes to say yes, much less 24 hours or a week or a month or a year.

    So I’ll ask you: why didn’t he say yes?

    Similar to your type of response - I don't really know why. We can only guess/speculate like were both doing now.

    I heard that Team Joshua said that they didnt believe Wilder had the funds. I'm not sure if you're up with the whole boxing scene but that was one of Hearns concerns due to Wilders low earnings in his fights and all of a sudden having 50 mill. Another issue was also the broadcasting contracts that both parties were signed too. There maybe some other underlining issues but you can find more articles on the net about what I'm saying.

    Naw, I really would like to see the fight in the first part of 2020. After the Ruiz fight then the negotiations should really get serious. I think the sticking point is how the money breaks down. At this point, a fifty fifty split should be a foregone conclusion but for some reason Hearn believes that Wilder deserves less. That's not gonna fly with Wilder and I agree.

    I'd give Wilder 50/50 if it were up to me. It'll make a lot of money and so everyone in their camps will get paid more than usual, I think.

    IMO the fight would've been made for end of this year, if Joshua had jumped into the ring after the Breazeale fight and called Wilder out. You imagine Joshua saying 'lets fight this year you ducker' what would Wilders response be? it would've been 'ok then, lets do it' and then it wouldve been on. A bit fantastical lol but thats how I think it wouldve roughly panned out, had Joshua gone to the fight last night.

    Honestly only a blind rabbid fanboi of the highest order would actually still be sprouting that rubbish. Even his team have gone quiet on it because it was just a publicity stunt to try and get more money..

    No doubt about it but Joshua ain't no fool like Fury, You can't get Fury within fifty miles of a rematch. Wilder done turned him into a fan, he been swinging on Wilder's sacks like The Mighty Quinn since the Breazeale fight. I think the AJ fight will get made this year because Wilder has already been offered and turned down 100 mil so his stock is on the rise and after last night it took another jump. Hearn realizes that he is worth the money he's asking for and will have no choice but to concede.
