Deontay Wilder's Manager on the Anthony Joshua vs Fury fight breaking down
Shelly Finkel, Deontay Wilder’s co-manager stated there was little effort made by Tyson Fury's team to get Wilder to walk away to make way for the Anthony Joshua super fight.
During the negotiations for the Fury Vs Anthony Joshua fight, Fury's team made little concern over the Bronze Bomber being able to enforce trilogy bout for the WBC championship. Much to Anthony Joshua's disappointment Wilder won the arbitration case. After a COVID-19 scare in Fury's camp the fight is now set for October.
This left Anthony Joshua disappointed as the chance to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world was pushed back indefinitely, Eddie Hearn was left feeling like Fury's camp didn't do all they could to stop the fight.
Finkel, a member of Wilder's team also made a similar observation when he told The Sun:
"We were shocked and our lawyers said they were shocked from their side that they made no effort before we won the case."
"They first tried to vacate the lawsuit and they lost."
"But there was nothing from their side, which I thought was short sighted. But that's their choice."
He then explained the negotiations with Warren, saying: “There was never a discussion. Frank [Warren], at one point said to me, 'Would you guys take a seven-figure walk away?’
"And I said, 'No'. And that was it. That was the only discussion and effort."
