From Tim Royner:
Wilder and Fury fought at Los Angeles, California last December to a controversial 12-round draw. You will find various opinions on which deserved the victory. Some think Fury out-boxed Wilder in a few of those rounds to possess the victory, while others point to the odd situation behind the 12th round knockdown in which Tyson looked to be unconscious and also the referee chose to give a count on him in the place of quitting it right a way.
The negotiations were slowed down due to Fury wanting neutral judges for the fight as a way to prevent another decision like in the fight. They initially wanted the Wilder-Fury two fight to take place. The Nevada Athletic commission will have their very own judges work the fight instead of neutral types. Therefore, the Wilder vs. Fury Two Re-match was transferred to New York at MSG [Madison Square Garden] on May 18. It may not make a difference whether the fight takes place at New York or Las Vegas. In case Fury gets hauled down by Wilder at exactly the exact same way he was at the 12th round, then the fight will probably be stopped this moment. The preceding referee Jack Reiss won’t even be working the re match, so if Fury gets flattened in exactly the exact same style, the fight will probably be ceased immediately.
Once Joshua-Miller fight is done , Hearn is going to have exactly the same issues in trying to reconcile with the winner of the Wilder vs. Fury two fight to handle AJ. They’re planning to want to have a 50-50 deal, and when most of Hearn is offering them is a 60-40 deal, ” he ’will have to look elsewhere to get a competitor to handle Joshua. Whyte could be the clear backup arrange for Hearn when he can’t even get Fury or Wilder to accept a deal. Then Hearn will probably go after someone like Kubrat Pulev or maybe even a re match with Joseph Parker if not him. Hearn has options.
