The hype behind Joshua-Wilder is there but it still lacks build up and promoting. Wilder is not a household name in the US despite him being the WBC World heavyweight champion. He needs a big fight that will be promoted with a great deal of interest and that can only happen against Anthony Joshua.

He’s doing a great job using Anthony’s [Joshua] name, I don’t mean this with disrespect, to grow interest and raise his own profile. And I believe his profile is growing,” said Hearn.
