Hearn Blasts 60/40 Joshua-Wilder Rumors
While Eddie Hearn wants Deontay Wilder at the table, he refuses to give the WBC heavyweight champion a 50-50 or 60-40 split for a fight against Anthony Joshua.
Wilder has made it known that not only will he not go to the table after until after his fight against Tyson Fury, but that he wants between 40-50% to face Joshua on April 13th at Wembley Stadium.
“I am sick and tired of idiots out there that think he wants the fight,” Hearn said to IFL TV about Wilder’s willingness to take on Joshua.
“How stupid do you have to be to think that Deontay Wilder wants this fight? Just listen to what he’s saying.
“It’s boring, boring, (Wilder) wants 60/40? f*** off, you haven’t earned 3 million bucks. “You could walk down any street in the world and ask anyone who Deontay Wilder is, nobody has a f****** clue.
“He isn’t going to do 300 buys on Showtime PPV and he wants 60/40, idiot,” Hearn claimed about Wilder’s Pay-Per-View debut against Fury on December 1st. “Don’t waste our time. Don’t use Joshua’s name to try and gain profile and publicity. Waste of time, waste of my life.”
“Maybe he’s just saying it, I don’t know, but if that’s what he thinks, please don’t waste my time, I’m really f****** busy,” Hearn said.
“No time for time wasters, it’s just so, so draining. All we do is chase, make approaches, make offers, try to have negotiations.”
