Eddie Hearn could learn a bit from this John Skipper character :
“I will not characterize them at all, or even confirm them. We have discussions with people and until we announce I rarely comment on them until we announce, so I don’t have anything to announce so no comment. Other than we’re interested in having the best fights on DAZN and we will put the fights on that people want to see. It’s pretty clear that one fight people want to see is Joshua and Wilder," Skipper said.
Eddie Hearn, promoter for IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, believes there is a new avenue to finalize a potential unification with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder. It's been no secret that Wilder is being courted by streaming service DAZN, who have an exclusive content...
...and Hearn already casting doubt on what he claims is the 'brilliant chance of the fight being made' :
"Clearly, the relationship between Team Wilder and Team Joshua is not the best. I think this is a route that is going to be very beneficial to the making of that undisputed fight. It's not just about doing a deal with Wilder, it's about doing a deal with Joshua".
In an article on-line earlier Eddie Hearn praised Skipper's handling of negotiations but referred to the 'split' as the stumbling block. When I went back to the same article later on mention of the 'split' had been removed.
