Frank Warren: Hearn's Offer is Nowhere Near What Fury is Worth

Frank Warren, promoter for heavyweight contender, has thrown water at a recent offer presented by promotional rival Eddie Hearn.

Hearn recently revealed that he made an offer to Fury, for a potential fight with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. That fight would take place at April 13th at Wembley Stadium in London.

But Fury has other plans, as he intends to go forward with a planned rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

frank-warren (1) reported earlier today, that Wilder vs. Fury will take place on a date in late April or early May, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Last month, the two heavyweights fought to a controversial twelve round split draw at Staples Center in Los Angeles. It was easily one of the better heavyweight contests in recent years.

The World Boxing Council recently ordered Wilder and Fury to fight each other in a mandatory rematch.

Warren believes Hearn is now desperate to find a suitable opponent for Joshua - after last year's debacle where the Wilder-Joshua negotiations fell apart.

"Eddie's offer is nowhere near what Tyson is worth. It is derisory offers like that which are keeping his man at home twiddling his thumbs after turning down $80 million for two fights against Wilder. That is money he will never get back," Warren told Daily Mail.

"Because of this Joshua's bubble has burst with the public a bit. There will be no more just sticking his face on a poster and selling out 80,000 tickets. Yes, he's going from Park Lane to Brick Lane."

Warren is not worried about Wilder vs. Fury rematch taking place in the United States, he only wants to ensure that everything, especially the officials, is set down on an even playing field.

"All we want is a fair fight. So no American judges and no British judges," Warren said.

[QUOTE=kafkod;19474363]He might have done just that. When a mandated fight gets made without a purse bid, that usually means the challenger has been offered more than his mandatory cut.[/QUOTE] Hopefully it doesn't go into a purse bid.

[QUOTE=kafkod;19474314]In fairness to old fish eyes, we don't know if he will accept 60/40 for Wilder. That's not Warren's asking price, it's the split mandated by the WBC if it goes to a bid.[/QUOTE] He could still say no to…
