Wilder’s Team Looks To Make Fury-Joshua Fights Happen

With Deontay Wilder’s return to Showtime all but confirmed, the WBC world heavyweight champion’s co-manager preaches patience on the road to unification and a rematch with Tyson Fury.

“It was like this in the time of Mike Tyson,” Shelly Finkel, Wilder’s co-manager told Telegraph Sport on Monday.

“Complex and complicated. It’s that way when making the very biggest fights. But they got ironed out in the end like these will. There’s too much at stake for all these fighters for it not to happen.”

“So many people try to dictate my career and tell me, ‘I should do this, I should do that, I shouldn’t do this, I shouldn’t do that’,” Wilder said this week regarding opinions on his next move.

“$12.5m is laughable now, $15m is laughable. All this stuff I was supposed to have done, I didn’t do none of that and now look at my career. I’m betting on myself and you can’t go wrong with yourself. I love being a free agent, I love being able to move about doing what I do and we’ll see what the future holds.”
