Former heavyweight world champion David Haye believes that a round-robin style tournament between Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury should be organised so that all three heavyweights finally face off against each other, the Daily Express report.
The trio are regarded as the top three heavyweights in the world and all three remain undefeated in their professional careers after Wilder and Fury were involved in a split decision draw back in December.
Despite many wanting Joshua to take on either Wilder or Fury this summer, all three fighters have already arranged plans for the coming months.
Joshua will head stateside for the first time in his career to take on Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller on June 1, Wilder will take on fellow American Dominic Breazeale in May and Fury will face off against German Tom Schwarz on June 15.
And speaking to talkSPORT, Haye, who now manages British heavyweight Dereck Chisora, admitted that a potential round-robin style tournament between the three should be agreed in order for the trio to finally all face each other.
It’d be good to get a big showdown with some of these big names in America and really start generating the money Stateside.
Then, hopefully there’s enough money in the pot to start fighting each other because it is very frustrating as a boxing fan not to get the best fighting the best. Very frustrating.
If that fight got made, I’d be very, very happy.
But whoever did win that fight, you would then say, ‘Well, you’ve gotta fight Fury now.’
I don’t mind, I’d like these guys to do a round-robin. Say Fury had got that decision [against Wilder], does that make Wilder any worse?
A tournament as suggested by Haye could well be complex to agree, with Wilder, Joshua and Fury all signed up to different broadcast companies and all have different promoters.
