The corner of Deontay Wilder is fascinated with the decision of the judge who ordered the third fight with Tyson fury.
“It was a great feeling,” he said. Shelly Finkel, co-manager of Wilder in an interview with Sky Sports. “There is a saying of the dog with the two bones. And the big bone was Saudi Arabia and in the end it ended up with none ”.
The closure of the trilogy was forced after the order of an arbitration court that leaned in favor of Deontay, pulling back the ad that the own Fury had made in his social networks a fight with Anthony Joshua on August 14 in Saudi Arabia.
“Their plan is obviously to beat us in July because they believe Fury will pass over Deontay Y Joshua on (Oleksandr) Usyk so they can face each other in the fall ”, he considered. “Our plan is to delay that.”
At the corner of Wilder do not doubt that the fact that the court decided in their favor to force the closure of the trilogy, was a strong impact for the representatives of FuryBut now they don’t think of anything other than ruining the party.
“I think that (Bob) Arum he ended up shocked with the decision, “he said. Finkel. “I really wanted that fight with Joshua. They wanted it to be done in Saudi Arabia, but we don’t want anything more than the fight ”.
However, both Arum (representative of Fury) Y (Eddie) Hearn (in charge of Joshua), they assure that they maintain the firm plan of reaching a unification of the complete pesos by the end of the year.
They never thought to get out of the way
According to himself FinkelThey never thought to step aside from the possible trilogy, although they really believe that a financial offer should have been made.
“We never thought of stepping aside, but under my logic if I were in the shoes of Eddie and I am about to make 150 million more what is accumulated in international rights and payments per event, “he added.
Now the complete division has an uncertain future heading into the end of the year, and triumphs of Usyk Y Wilder could literally ruin the future plan for both Matchroom like Top rank, who have been pushing for months to finally achieve the unification between Joshua Y Tyson Fury.
However, a win for both reigning champions could be a tunnel light by the end of August.
“I would tell them there is a chance of losing, so of those 200 million we offer something and see if they are interested,” he said.
