Anthony Joshua has hinted at the possible Unification Super-Fight to be next
Insisting he is out to collect all the heavyweight belts, unified champion tweets : W.e’re B.elt C.ollecting ?
Negotiations have been silent in recent weeks following the $50 million offer from Deontay Wilder & Team who seem like they were just playing a PR move using AJ’s name as they pulled out of a meeting with promoter Eddie Hearn.
It is the last belt Joshua needs for a full set as he already holds the WBA, WBO, IBF & IBO heavyweight titles and is now having some fun posting on social media which could turn out to be the biggest hint yet a fight deal is getting closer.
This comes after Matchroom Boxing Promoter Eddie Hearn agrees a $1bn deal with an on-demand streaming service in the United States.
The huge deal will stage 16 fights a year for eight years on DAZN.
DAZN will now be the exclusive US broadcast partner for Matchroom’s existing 16 boxing fight nights in the UK.
“Fights how and when they want to, anytime and anywhere”
Hearn says : “Since our expansion to the US, we have been looking for a partner that shares our vision and that can give us the volume of dates and rights fees required to build the strongest stable in world boxing and take it to a new level.”
“This is a historic moment for Matchroom and the sport of boxing.”
