Froch: Joshua Will Win, He'll Be Too Good For Deontay Wilder

Former super middleweight champion and Sky Sports pundit, Carl Froch, feels confident that IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) will be too much for WBC beltholder champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs).

Froch is very high on Wilder and would likely back him to beat anyone else in the division - except Joshua.

He told BBC Radio 5 live: "I think Joshua beats Wilder. It's very tough, a hard fight, but I think he beats him. But I think Joshua would be too good for him and he'll beat him. Then when he's beaten Deontay Wilder the world's his oyster, he's undisputed heavyweight champion of the world."


Right now the two sides are haggling over a $50 million guarantee that Wilder's camp had issued to Joshua for a unification showdown.

Joshua and his promoter, Eddie Hearn, refuse to accept the offer until a contract is issued with the exact details of the agreement.

They also want to see some documentation to prove the funds actually exist.

Froch believes Joshua should jump on the offer and fight Wilder now - while the anticipation for the contest is sky high.

"It's just exciting - I want to see this fight but I don't think it'll happen next unless this $50 million can be substantiated because they'd be silly to turn that down I think," Froch said.

"He can do what he wants, he can have a couple of steady defences and it quietens up all the critics and all the people that want to see him maybe get beaten or maybe be in hard fight, it quietens then, silences them down so I think strike whilst the iron's hot, the fight's there for him, if that 50 million is there for the taking, go and take it, go and win the fight.

"He's on the best platform and he's earning good money, but he earns the money because people want to see him fight, people pay to watch him fight. He's got to the point now where does he want to earn another 50 million or does he want to unify the division? I think he should be looking at unifying it and the money should be secondary."

[QUOTE=Sid-Knee;18723315]No, Finkle has come out and said that meeting up would be unproductive. Hearn never said that. So go and talk your bullsh*t elsewhere. Wilder and his side are the ones clearly holding things up. You'd have to be seriously…
