    Could hopefully he happening at the end of this year.

    If Hearn is serious about his offers then why not?

    This is what I expected when the news broke that Arum wanted an interim fight. Arum has acted as though Anthony Joshua doesn't exist. Very, very, silly decision for me. All I'll say is; goodluck trying to get 50% from the undisputed champion.

    At the same time, what a cracking fight Wilder/AJ is. Stylistically, I believe it's one of, if not the best fight in the sport today. Someone's getting decapitated!

    I hope Hearn doesn’t **** this up. The last line sums it up for me. It’s a straight shoot out. I’m not sure how great either mans chin in and that’s sort of irrelevant anyway because the power they both possess is astonishing.

    Wilder has said the fight is easy to make if they swallow their pride and give him what he wants. That to me screams "Give me 50/50 and it's a done deal." Hearn be mad not to in my opinion. With the rematch on ice, it's the perfect time for undisputed fight.

    Big iosh’s team unequivocally DUCKED the wilder fight until fury stepped up to the plate. Have they seen something in that fight which makes them want to put the chinny robot in with the bronze bomber now?

    Aj himself doesn’t appear to have much if any say in who he fights

    I've given up hope of this fight happening. There's always a disagreement in the negotiations, always screaming insults to the media and accusations. Shame on them. They are both to blame for the past failed negotiations. Now Wilder wants 50-50 deal. Yeah bro, keep saying this and the fight is never going to happen. I think 43-57 is probably the fairest split, but anything under 40/60 for Wilder is too low, and above 45/55 is too high.
    I like this sport so much, I'd love to see these guys fight multiple times but the greed is too big and the egos are way too much. Boxing is 1% actual fight and 99% politics and money.

    Yes would be a great fight and whoever wins can confidently say they are the king of the HW division. Fury can live off his Dusseldorf win and climbing back off the canvas against Wilder for the rest of his career.

    When history looks back then it will see him as the fraud that ruled himself out of the big fights.

    What annoys me if is, had Fury declared from the beginning that he had no intention of fighting Wilder, then Wilder would have been forced into re negotiated with hearn to Fight Joshua r in April instead of having to watch AJ beat Miller and Wilder likely fighting his mandatory Breazelle.

    Fury v Joshua is biggest money fight in the division. Joshua in recent fights has been earning 15-19m per fight, Fury on his new deal will earn in access of that. It's also the best fight in the division and if Sky/BT Agreed to show fight on both their ppv platforms I belueve ut would do 2m or so ppv buys in UK.

    Well that's just cynical pony.

    A.) Fury already fought and outboxed Wilder.
    B.) You've no idea who Fury will fight in the future.

    Really hope we get to see them fight each other twice, would be great if Hearn could make this fight happen.

    Whoever is at fault is irrelevant. AJ loses credibility by not fighting one of them.

    I think 50/50 is fair.

    Time to leave the ego at the door and make the fight.

    The thing is, this could be what Arum and Fury want. Once wilder and Joshua fight one of them will come out undisputed, and when they do Fury will probably be close enough to #1 in every governing body. So he will get an undisputed shot without having to do much but sit on his hands

    He did outbox Wilder. But turning down 50/50 on a PPV for the rematch is frustrating for the fans.

    It means he wants an easier route.

    Shouldn't Wilder just be handing over $50 mil to AJ.

    Not according to Bazza. In his own words, he's delighted Joshua turned down 50 million as he will get more than that now... As was the plan.
