Wilder told to let Joshua fight Fury, take on winner in 2021

Published on

Deontay Wilder has been told by ESPN commentator Timothy Bradley to take step-aside money and let Tyson Fury fight Anthony Joshua in the meantime, reports express.co.uk. Wilder lost to Fury in February via seventh-round TKO.

With his loss, Wilder dropped the WBC world title he’d held since 2015. Fans now want to see Fury face WBA, WBO and IBF champion Joshua in an undisputed fight. But that means Wilder would have to step aside from his contracted rematch with Fury, which was supposed to happen in July but got pushed back to October because of the coronavirus.

There are reports that Joshua and Fury could fight in the Middle East in December, but Wilder and Joshua’s mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev stands in the way. And Bradley thinks Wilder should take the money being offered to him, because he’ll be getting a lot of cash to do nothing but improve his craft while Joshua and Fury fight it out.

“If he wants to get paid big money, he should take the step-aside money. The fight that everybody wants to see right now is Fury-Joshua,” Bradley told ESPN.

“I know I don’t want to see Fury-Wilder III, and I’m pretty sure the fans don’t want to see another fight, because of the way Wilder got beat down by Tyson Fury.

“The fans will be like, ‘I’m not paying for that — Fury’s going to beat him up again’.“Not having fights right now is actually buying us time so that we don’t have to see it at the moment — it’s actually helping Wilder.

“Pride is one thing. Business is another. I understand his take on getting his belt back, but there has to be a plan. He has to become a better boxer if he’s ever going to beat Fury.

“He cannot go into the ring the same way. Why rush back in there without training, without doing what you need to do, without adding to your craft and changing a few things in your training camp?

“I understand pride. Pride can sometimes make fighters make foolish mistakes. That’s why you’ve gotta have smart people around you to tell you what you should do. Because you’re not thinking straight. You’re not thinking like a businessman.

“A lot of people will say, ‘Oh, he needs to go and get his $26 million,’ or whatever he’s supposed to be offered for a rematch, but that money’s not there.

“How are you going to be able to generate that much money? I just don’t see it, especially with this pandemic and the state of boxing. “I just don’t see Wilder there until he builds himself back up. He got destroyed.”
