‘F****** waste of time, waste of my life… no one’s got a f****** clue who Deontay Wilder is’: Eddie Hearn blasts American after he demanded 60-40 purse split for Anthony Joshua fight

  • Eddie Hearn has launched an astonishing tirade at Deontay Wilder 
  • Hearn blames Wilder for the failure to reach a fight deal with Anthony Joshua 
  • The promoter claims Wilder wanted a 60-40 split to secure the fight 
  • The unbeaten Wilder now faces another Briton in Tyson Fury later this year 

Eddie Hearn has branded Deontay Wilder a ‘f***ing waste of time’ as the war of words between the American and Anthony Joshua’s camp continues. 

Hearn, who represents British boxing superstar Joshua, also claimed Wilder demanded a 60-40 split in his favour to secure a fight deal.

With an impasse reached between the two camps, Wilder is instead set to take on another Brit in Tyson Fury this December.

And discussing the breakdown in negotiations, Hearn has launched an astonishing tirade at the unbeaten fighter, who he says has vastly overestimated his pulling power.

‘Boring-boring, mate f*** off, mate you ain’t earned three million bucks, f*** sake, you can walk up any city, any high street, any town in the world and ask anyone who Deontay Wilder is – no one’s got a f****** clue,’ Hearn told iFL TV.  

‘He ain’t even going to do 300 buys on pay-per-view – he wants 60-40, idiot. F****** don’t waste our time, don’t use Joshua’s name to try and gain a profile and publicity. 

‘F****** waste of time, waste of my life, if that’s what he really thinks please don’t waste my time – I’m really f****** busy.

‘I’ve got no time for time wasters, give me someone that wants to fight Joshua, not talk about it to try and raise their profile. 

‘How stupid have you got to be to think that Deontay Wilder wants this fight? Just listen to what he’s saying.’ 

Wilder is now set to go head-to-head with Fury at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on December 1, with the winner likely to face further clamour to fight Anthony Joshua in 2019.
