Hearn: Wilder Has Lost His mind

Eddie Hearn has come to the conclusion that Deontay Wilder has lost his mind for turning down offers in the last few weeks.

Hearn told Boxing News that the money he offered to the WBC heayweight champion to face either Dereck Chisora or Dillian Whyte, was way more than his fight in March against Luis Ortiz.

“[Wilder] has lost the plot at the moment. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. He’s got a team of people around him that can’t pay him any money. We’re offering him a load of money and he thinks I’m an a******e so he doesn’t really want to deal with me. But when he realizes I’m paying him three or four times more than everybody else,” Hearn said to Boxing News.

“But now I can put it on a plate, you’ve got Dillian Whyte, you’ve got Dereck Chisora, he might look at ‘Del Boy’ and go, ‘I’ll have Del Boy.’ Imagine Wilder against Chisora at the O2.”

Instead of Chisora or Whyte, Wilder is looking to land a fight this fall against former unified world champion Tyson Fury.
