Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn believes the all-British fight for the undisputed world champion title could happen in November and December after Deontay Wilder announces he will activate the rematch option with the Gipsy King.
Fury knocked out the Bronze Bomber at the MGM Grand on February 22 to regain the WBC title. Both Fury’s and Tyson’s side were ready to organize the fight in summer. Hearn even suggested they could cancel the IBF mandatory defense against Kubrat Pulev and prepare for the mega-fight against Fury.
However, Deontay Wilder does want the third fight which means fans should wait several more months to Joshua – Fury.
“People don’t want the third fight. They’ve had 19 rounds now, Wilder’s probably won three of them and in the last fight he got battered.” Hearn told The Sun
“But I understand the contractual position. He does have a right to a rematch clause.
“I’d just say “Hurry up, please” and do it quickly. We just hope they get on with it and get it out of the way.
“We can’t get Fury, we’ve got to fight Pulev and we’ll get that out of the way.
“Hopefully, Fury can get his out of the way and we can get this done in November or December this year.” he added.
