I mean, just off the top of my head, (WBC head) Mauricio Sulaiman, I had lunch with him on Monday and I said, 'I just want you to know we want the Wilder fight. It's the only fight Joshua really wants next. So anything you could do to help is appreciated.' And he phoned me today, actually and said, 'I'd like to speak to you about April'. So I don't know who he's spoken to but we're trying everything we can to try and make it happen." Hearn added,"My instruction from Anthony Joshua is - make the Wilder fight happen And that's the job I've been presented with.
So what's the possibility of a showdown between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder in the first half of 2019?

If they're not, they'll go onto what they're doing and we'll go onto what we're doing." Finkel, who advises Wilder, added,"Look, I don't believe he's looking to fight us. From what I hear, the next fight will be Dillian Whyte, then he'll build up next year a fight with (Oleksandr) Usyk. That's what I understand and until he shows me that there's something real to discuss, that's what I believe is happening."

Though Prescott has lost two in a row and six of his last seven he represents by far Dutchover’s most notable opponent. “This year was all about elevating my level of competition.

They could be staying together for the long term.

Murata (14-2, 11 KOs) still has until early December to exercise his contractual right to an immediate rematch if he wants one.
