I'd walk the earth like a god too, if I had been paid that much.
You mean like Wilder and Parker have no cache now. Joshua over pays Martin to get a title shot, he agrees to a very risky fight vs Wlad in the hope it takes him to the next level and make him a star which it does. Wilder especially could learn from this.
fair enough, but who does Jopshua fight next then? bum ass whyte is a joke of a fight. where does he go next? who is credible, yet will take pennies on a dollar to fight him?
You got in one,Parker has fought his career in New Zealand and Wilder in Alabama in front of nine thousand a time,go figure their respective values,it ain’t much really and Hearn I believe is being very fair with em re this.
I’d be interested to know what AJ got against Wlad,I’m betting it was less than Wlad so clearly Hearn and AJ knew the score with Wlad but the year also knew that if they won the torch would pass to Joshua making him the king bee,that was a calculated risk that almost come unstuck in round six but still he took that risk which is something Wilder hasn’t shown yet,him facing Joshua for a guaranteed 10mill is not a risk either.
When Wilder was talking about facing Ortiz instead of Stiverne one channel on YouTube called it right by saying do you really think Al Haymon would put his newly signed Ortiz i next with Wilder when he’d not even had a pay day off him?
Hard to say. Whyte will be at the bottom of the list of potential opponents. When Hearn said this he said Povetkin would be an option too, but everyone seems focused on Whyte. Though Povetkin doesn't want it yet apparently, so they'd have to throw a ton of cash at him to secure Povetkin.
Miller has been mentioned before, that fight in the US to grow Joshua's profile might be interesting. Take a small financial hit to have it there but in terms of long term gain it could pay off. Miller to me is the most likely option whether in the UK or US.
I'm sure if they were desperate they could try and get Ortiz, they'll offer him a lot more than Wilder will pay, but with Haymon in control of Ortiz I doubt it will happen.
In a similar move a fight with Lucas Browne could be possible. Browne showed interest before and they can offer him more than a Parker fight will bring and that would reduce Parker's options on who he fights next which could bring Joshua/Parker closer.
This. Parker and Wilder are avoiding each other because the loser will also lose out on the AJ payday.
AJ is the cash king.....parker seems like a good lad but wilder just wants AJ sweepstakes
No, it's mainly because Wilder wouldn't want the fight.
He doesn't even want to face Dillian Whyte.
He's more likely to face Stiverne for a third time.
miller would be a huge pay cut. they wouldn't draw 10,000 fans anywhere here in the states, whereas joshua can fill a soccer stadium at home. browne in australia would likely net more money than miller in the states.
It's already been decided that Wilder will fight Breazeale next because Haymon's WBC made his fighter Breazeale mandatory for some reason$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, Breazeale has already been knocked out by Joshua, he can't fight at all and again he is owned by Haymon, will take a dive if ordered to..............but does not need to so that since he can't fight....................
Its surely they next logical fight to make if AJ won't accept their terms right? Unless of course its all about the money. If i was Team AJ i would make them sweat if parker really wants a huge payday he will eventually accept 30% or what ever hearn offers before he loses his belt to somebody else. As much as i want to see them all fight, if i was AJ i would not be blackmailed and held for ransom as that's what is happening imo, i don't blame parker either i would do the same in his shoes too.
When is Pulev supposed to be "healthy"?
