Eddie Hearn does not plan to give up his goal, which is to arrange a match between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder. Eddie Hearn, in an interview with the media, stressed that arranging a match of such magnitude requires both parties to be patient.

Likewise, the fans are hopeful that the deal will be finalized soon. “It’s slow, I won’t lie. Obviously, it’s a massive fight and these things take time. Everything is kind of agreed other than the signing of the paperwork.

We know that takes time, especially in that part of the world," Hearn told The DAZN Boxing Show, as quoted by boxingscene.com!

Eddie Hearn on Joshua's plans

Eddie Hearn also revealed what plans Anthony Joshua has. The Brit has a huge desire to show that he is still one of the best.

Although his form has not pleased the fans lately, Joshua will try to convince everyone otherwise and show real strength! He is determined to take on anyone who stands in his way. “For me the biggest concern is AJ wants to fight in December or January.

We know the Wilder fight is not going to happen in December, so we’re happy to wait until January - but if that fight starts pushing back to February or March, don’t be surprised if he still signs for that fight but has another one in-between," Hearn said.

Joshua seems to be summoning a new youth. Despite the fact that he has been on the boxing scene for many years and that many feel fed up, Joshua trains as hard as ever and is also maximally motivated. His desire and motive are really something special!

"He’s loving the activity at the moment. He’s loving being in training camp, he’s loving working with Derrick James. But our full focus is to sign the Deontay Wilder fight. I’m not disappointed but we want to get it done."
