Hearn calls for Fury-Joshua unification clash

“We’d be clowns, we’d be idiots if we didn’t make this fight,” Eddie Hearn, promoter of WBA/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, told Sky Sports about a potential all-British unification showdown between Joshua and WBC champion Tyson Fury.

“I promise you this fight will happen. If we have to fight (Kubrat) Pulev, we’ve got to beat Pulev, and if he has to fight Wilder, he’s got to beat Wilder again. Both of those things will happen. Fury will beat Wilder again and Joshua will knock Pulev clean out, despite Bob Arum telling us very differently…you will get this fight. We will do everything that it takes to make this fight.”

Deontay Wilder Team Speaks

By Miguel Maravilla

Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder did not attend the post-fight press conference as he went to the hospital following his fight with Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Wilder’s trainer Jay Deas and manager Shelly Finkel were present.

“Mark (Breland) threw in the towel. I don’t think he should have. Deontay is the kind of guy that doesn’t want to quit,” said Deas. “I haven’t talked to Mark about it but we will talk about it. Deontay is doing well. He had a small cut in his ear. It probably messed up his equilibrium. He’ll be back.”

With the defeat, Wilder has 30 days to exercise his rematch clause. “Deontay will be back and you will see these guys in a rematch,” Finkel promised. Stay tuned…

Martin and Washington got off to a fast start as they exchanged to close round one. The southpaw Martin shot the straight left into Washington’s mid section in the third as Washington stalked. In round three both fighters kept their distance as Martin pressed and Washington stuck out the jab. The fourth round was slow paced with Washington and Martin measuring with their jabs but late in the round Martin rallied as he landed a flush straight left to close.

The straight left landed once again for Martin as he connected Washington multiple times with it in the fifth. A straight left found its mark for the last time as Martin sent Washington to the canvas. Washington got up but could not continue as he was dazed. Referee Tony Weeks waved it off at 1:57 of the sixth.
