Anthony Joshua is slowly returning to his old form. Now he already has 2 wins in a row. In August, he defeated Robert Helenius in the seventh round with a knockout to the general amazement of the audience. It was a really good and dynamic match, and Joshua finished the match in his own style.
A fully deserved victory that will encourage him even more before the big match against Wilder, which should take place in January in Saudi Arabia.
Eddie Hearn and the boxing audience can't wait for this match
Eddie Hearn wants that fight against Wilder, but as he says, not everything is in their hands, and many things would have to coincide.
“Talks are ongoing. We are still in the same position of a January fight. If we don’t conclude that fight and they about moving it to February or March, we will probably fight in December. Wilder is talking about fighting in October, but it’s already September now,” Hearn told IFL TV.
“He will wait to fight Wilder in January. He’s training now. He wants to fight in December. If they turned around and said ‘let’s do the Wilder fight in December’ he’d do it. But everybody is talking like it’s happening, but until it’s happening it ain’t on.
Until it’s on, we’ll keep our options open for December. Ideally, we’d like to go straight into the Wilder fight”. “I think you’re going to end up seeing the best of him in the bigger fights.
The reality is if he did have another fight it would be on the level of Dillian, Helenius… those kinds of levels. Would it get the best out of him? I don’t think it wouldn’t be beneficial [to have a third fight in 2023], but I don’t think it would change the result of the Wilder fight,” Hearn said.
