Default Eddie Hearn is a good businessman, and he's building the fight correctly.

Let's be honest. I am desperate to see the fight, so at first I got a fair bit pissed off with Eddie Hearn seemingly ducking. But now I see what he's doing.

He is stirring the pot, generating the interest and raising the profile of Deontay Wilder and this fight. It's that simple. If they just made the fight seamlessly with no hiccups, it would be AJ fighting someone who can't draw but is a big threat. Whereas the approach being used is going to turn Wilder into a big name in boxing, and a lot of people will want to see the fight now.

A million UK boxing casuals will now see Wilder as the antichrist, and Wilder's fanbase may have grown by a few thousand. Certainly a lot more people will be showing interest. Just creating a buzz. The longer it is left to marinate, the more effective this approach will be in building the fight. Eventually there may actually be a public demand for it both sides of the pond.

Yeah if we are being honest here, couple years back, Wilder was the dude who fought nobody and the laughinstock of HW. Now he is being built up for a mega fight for HW supremacy. Both fighters come out of this making good fortune.

I understand that reasoning but as a boxing fan the business side of boxing is frustrating. It makes sense to have the fight right now and I want to see it now but from a business standpoint (which I couldn’t care less about), you might be right.

Hes trying his hardest to build Wilders profile, offering a UK fight aswell. Wilders putting up a hell of a resistance, so random. Whole things back to front.

I agree. These emotional fans are rhe same ones that cried over Pacquiao not getting a mayweather fight after that marquez ko. Its got to be the right time

so what did most of you guys call it when canelo/golden boy drummed up alot of interest in the ggg/canelo fight by waiting a lil bit?

if you take direct offense to this understand you, personally, might not have given them flack....but understand alot of hardcore boxing fans/gggroupies did

lets face...i can see what hearn is doing...and in the long run wilder will probably make more money.....it will be good for both guys...

my problem is with the same group giving AJ a pass that battered canelo for a year+....and those that still insist its wilders fault

if we call it for what it really is i have no beef with hearn/AJ if it gets done in april
