Eddie Hearn on why Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury II may never happen

In a recent interview with Sirius XM Fight Nation 93, Eddie Hearn spoke about the current heavyweight division and Anthony Joshua v Jarrell Miller.

The Matchroom boss spoke to usual hosts Gerry Cooney and Randy Gordon to air his expert views on Miller facing Joshua.

Hearn also gave his reason why a rematch between WBC title holder Deontay Wilder and lineal ruler Tyson Fury may now be off the table for good.

Fury signed for ESPN last week. The deal is said to be worth £8o million over fight fights.

Linking with ESPN meant a date of May 18 for the Wilder return was instantly scrapped.

Also, joining the show around the same time was Miller himself. The American has cast himself as the villain against Joshua on June 1.

‘Big Baby’ aims to rip the four world heavyweight titles away from Joshua in New York.

Joshua makes his Madison Square Garden and United States debut on the night.
