Hearn Cautions That Joshua-Wilder Has 2-3 Weeks To Get Done

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

EDDIE HEARN has set a three-week deadline to strike a deal for Anthony Joshua to face Deontay Wilder this year.
  
The WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO champion’s promoter wants more information from Wilder’s team about their £36m [$50 million] offer which would be the highest purse in heavyweight history.

Hearn has been frustrated by the WBC title holder’s reluctance to disclose the full details of the deal unless he accepts it first.

But he remains confident a deal can be agreed and hopes to secure a meeting with Wilder’s team when he jets back to New York next week.

Hearn said: “We have two or three weeks to do this.

“I’m in New York again next week and then those talks can continue.

“I can’t give them an answer on do we accept their offer until they give me answers on quite a few things - the date and venue for example. That matters to us.

“If it’s in England, then it’s much more likely we would take the fight. Also is there a rematch? What channel is it on? What control do we have? Because AJ has major corporations sponsoring him.

“If we accept their offer and then don’t go through with the fight because we’re not happy, then we look like shmucks.

 

“AJ is interested, but there are loads we need to know.

“I will go back to them this week and see if they will answer these questions. I really do think there is a good chance if could happen next.”

[QUOTE=Holler;18733626]I can't answer for others here Uppercut but to run with your hypothetical scenario... I wouldn't take 'let's roll' to be the equivalent of: 'I accept any and all terms, will not seek to uphold my contractual obligations to third…

[QUOTE=WBC WBA IBF;18733082]AJ himself was very quick to say, "Let's roll." [/QUOTE] That's the evidence?
