Deontay Wilder Told He Holds The Key To Any Future Fury-Joshua Fight: "It'll Be Dead" || Super Admin
Frank Warren, the promoter of Tyson Fury, holds the belief that the possibility of an all-British showdown between Fury and Anthony Joshua hinges on the outcome of Joshua's upcoming fight against Deontay Wilder.
Warren's Queensberry Promotions recently reached out to Joshua's representatives with an offer for a September bout at Wembley Stadium, but the proposal was declined.
"George," referring to George Warren, Frank Warren's son and colleague, "met with Joshua's management company, 258, and they have decided to wait for Saudi Arabia. I know Joshua will be fighting in August, but they have made it clear that they do not want to fight Tyson. That is their choice."
A clash between Fury and Joshua would undoubtedly be one of the most significant events in British boxing history, and fans have been eagerly anticipating this matchup for years. The two fighters had previously agreed to a deal in 2021, but Deontay Wilder's successful arbitration case forced Fury to face him in a trilogy bout, nullifying the contract with Joshua in the process.
Warren believes that once again, it is "The Bronze Bomber," Deontay Wilder, who holds the key to the possibility of a future Fury-Joshua fight.
It appears that Joshua is likely to face Wilder in Saudi Arabia in December, with both teams currently awaiting a formal offer from Skills Challenge Entertainment.
In an interview with iFL TV, Warren stated that if Wilder were to score a trademark knockout victory against Joshua, the chances of Fury-Joshua ever happening would be "dead."
"If Joshua takes that fight against Wilder and gets knocked out, which could happen, then the fight between Fury and Joshua is dead. It will have lost all its appeal and interest. I don't think anyone would be interested in it anymore, considering how many fights Joshua has lost in recent years. So, the time to make that fight is now."
Warren further emphasized that this presents a great opportunity for Joshua, who would be fighting for a world title, rather than facing an opponent whom Fury has already defeated three times.
On the other hand, Eddie Hearn, Joshua's promoter, has made it clear that their plan is to fight in August and, if successful, take on Wilder in December. They are unwilling to deviate from these plans based on the hope that Fury's offer is genuine.
In conclusion, the fate of a much-anticipated Fury-Joshua clash relies heavily on Joshua's upcoming fight against Wilder, and Warren believes that if Joshua suffers a knockout defeat, the allure of the matchup will vanish.
