Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has spoken out over the collapsed talks between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, claiming ‘the fans are the ones who miss out on a blockbuster’.
Heavyweight champion Joshua, who currently holds the IBF, WBA and WBO titles, has recently booked out Wembley Stadium for September 22 and April 13, where he is expected to face mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin.
There have been strong reports over recent months that Joshua would face Wilder before the end of the year, however, the potential unification clash looks like it will have to wait after a breakdown in talks between the two parties.
Talking about the collapsed talks, promoter Warren didn’t hold back when it came to Joshua and Wilder, admitting they could have faced each other two or three times.
A massive money fight is down the drain and, more importantly, the fans miss out on what could have been a blockbuster.
If Joshua faced Wilder now they could have two or three fights. Then the person who comes out on top could take on Tyson Fury.
Will it ever happen? I’m not sure as there are a lot of conflicts of interest but it definitely should.
Warren’s client Fury is set to be back in action in August at Windsor Park in Belfast, with his opponent still unknown.
