Deontay Wilder is 'slowly imploding' and needs to get back in ring and give up on Tyson Fury trilogy fight, says Hearn
DEONTAY WILDER is 'slowly imploding' and needs to give up on a trilogy fight with Tyson Fury, according to Eddie Hearn.
The former WBC champion has not fought since last February, when he suffered a first professional defeat to the Gypsy King.
Fury is now in talks for an undisputed title decider with Anthony Joshua, despite Wilder believing he is still owed an immediate rematch.
As a result, the Bronze Bomber launched a legal dispute that is holding up confirmation of an all-British showdown.
But AJ's promoter Hearn has admitted that Wilder will not get in the way of announcing the fight with Fury.
He told Sky Sports: "That's a problem and a question really for Top Rank and Bob Arum.
He's been out of the ring for a year now, and he's slowly imploding in every single interview that he gives. He should get back in the ring
"We've been assured by them, that it's not going to be an issue in making this fight.
"I do believe that Deontay Wilder, he was supposed to be fighting in January.
"Now we're middle of February, so how much longer is he going to wait?
"He's been out of the ring for a year now, and he's slowly imploding in every single interview that he gives. He should get back in the ring.
"That's a Fury problem, a Team Fury problem. We're confident that it won't impact our fight, or the announcement.
"I keep saying two weeks [until an announcement]. I'm bored of saying it now.
"People are bored of probably hearing it, but we are finalising the finest details of the contract and hope to make an announcement soon."
